    How do you like the overall pen Les...been looking at those. What's the barrel length? Looks like a good candidate for a thicker wall casting? Good lookin' stuff!

    Looks great as usual, Les. I like the look of that hardware, too.

    I really like the knurled look, it brings out the highlights in my wrinkles

    Jim,
    It has a nice smooth twist action and is well balance,
    Uses a 3" X 3/8" tube.

    I like the knurling as well. Downright good looking!

    I've got my first one of those gluing up right now. ☺ Looks good Les. Now I'm anxious to get mine turned.

    Beautiful job, Les, love the pen. Here's one I made from end grain Bocote in gun metal finish.
