    Diamondback rattlesnake skin Gent

    Below is my new personal pen. It is a full sized Gentleman in Tn gold rollerball made from a Diamondback rattle snake blank by Glimmerz N More. We didn't have any plans for today and watching cars go around in circles wasn't the way to spend my time. So, I made this long time planned new personal pen. Turning technique was same as I described earlier with the scarlet perch Cigar. My photos could (should) be better, they picked up glare I didn't see outside. All that white really isn't there. For those who may wonder, while the Gent is a big pen, it does fit in a mans shirt pocket. And it feels nicely balanced in the hand while writing.

    Hi Frank,
    Your pen is beautiful and the setting you chose for the backdrop is a good one. Congratulations.

    Another nice one, Frank. Personally, I kind of like the bit of glare in the pics...sort of adds just a little "bling" to the finish.

    That's one of the best lookin pens I've seen. You did a great job on it and the photo setting is good too. It has an "old west/ new west" look, a bowie knife in your belt and a snakeskin gentleman in your pocket.
