Did not create the blank, but did turn the pen. It is a celtic knot done in bloodwood on slim line hardware. Couple of problems created this pen being without a center band. The piece with the knot cut in was to short for the tube so made the nib tube longer than the tube so it comes up over the clip end of the brass tube. It is two pieces and does retract the pen nib. Gary from another forum sold me the bloodwood blank, hope to be creating my own soon. Sorry for the poor picture quality, am aspiring to be a turner not a photographer.
