    Buckbrush

    On a Gun Metal Bolt Action.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with extra fine steel wool, burnished with wood shavings and applied 6 coats
    of MINWAX WBOM Polyurethane using my "dipping Method.

    What's a BuckBrush?

    I honestly don't care much for the bolt action pens, but really like the wood on the pen... don't know what the wood is and have not heard of it before, but it's outstanding looking wood.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Ok, I've heard of Greasewood, didn't know what it looked like though... probably saw the plants up in the mountains around Yosemite where I used to go to a guest ranch... it's a pretty wood... thanks for the info.

    Surprisingly pretty wood, Les, and as always, expertly worked.
