    OSU Pens

    Buckeye's that is...

    A co-worker of my wife is moving south. So, Karen wanted to give her a good bye present that gave a reminder of Ohio. Thus the two pens.

    She decided on the diamond wood version. That one is of course diamond wood top with a maple bottom dye scarlet. Black Ti Euro. I'm going to attempt to do another one just like it except I'm putting an OSU Buckeye emblem/decal. I think I might do a tutorial on it... the dye aspect?

    Jon, those are both beauties!

    I've not tried the "Satin" finish kits yet, the Japanese seem to like the shiny gold stuff the most

    Nice pens!

    Nice job on both pens, Jon. The finish looks great, too. What did you use?

    Very nice, John. Beautifully finished.

    Very Nice Jon your wifes co-worker should really like them.

    Only one problem, I think they would look better in Maze & Blue
