    Olympia

    Black Titanium dressed up in a piece of Sage brush sanded to 400x, buffed with extra fine steel wool, burnished with turned shavings, and finished with 6 coats of MINWAX WBOM Polyurethane using my "Dipping Method".
    Some of the Sage Brush looks a lot like Caragana even though they are not related.

    Depending on your area market and venue $40.00 - $50.00.

    I agree with Jim. Most people don't imagine making anything with sagebrush, let alone something so nice.

    Les, another great pen to show my students (like I do all of Mack's pens). We are just getting into casting pen blanks. Did you do a tutorial on making a feather pen?
