    My First ..........

    Sierra Vista Black and Gold with a Black Computer Circuit board.
    Turned, sanded to 400x, buffed with extra fine steel wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.
    Photos aren't the greatest, still playing with new camera.

    Truly a work of art! Where does one get the circuit board graphics for making pens? Now that you've shown your design, I suspect you'll be getting many requests! That is so cool!

    Great pen but I still prefer wood, I am sure there is a large market for those especially that well made.

    Al,

    I don't make these blanks.
    You can purchase them from most of the pen suppliers out there.
