    1st Statesman Jr. II

    Here is my pen! I've finally claimed a pen and this is it. (Unless I get offered some good $$$ for it. But I'm not going to openly put it out for sale.

    This Statesman Rhodium w/Bl ti. The blank is Spalted Curly Mango from Arizona Silhouette.

    Boy that is sure a beauty, I can see you wanting to hang onto that one!

    Great looking pen and neat wood! Is the mango a hard wood? For some reason I've thought it would be more like a palm, but what do I know.

    -Yes, CA finish. I didn't trust myself enough to do a plexi finish with this nice of pen.

    -Yes, this stuff is hard! Half way in I had to re-sharpen the Gouge. Heavy too!

    Wow! That's gorgeous, Jon. I see why you're not actively trying to sell that one.

    Great pen! I would even be afraid of taking it out from home for fear of losing it.
