    Juma Smoker

    Hi all

    Hope everybody is keeping well.

    I made this pen as a commission for a customer who picked the colours (I have made this style before, but not this colour combination). I must say that I was sceptical at first but I really liked it. I am sure this isn't the first time these colours have been combined and I know I'll get some honest comments from the discerning contributors on here. So fire away! 😊😊.

    (Oh and it really doesn't seem fair that, after the amount of effort it takes, there is still only a one in three chance of the patterns lining up).

    Cheers
    Ash

    It’s beautifully made Ash. Not my favourite choice of colours but then the customer is always right. It is certainly a striking colour combination that’s for sure.

    That is a beauty Ash, I wouldn't have picked that colour combination but they go well together.

    Beautifully made Ash and the Juma is stunning.
    Separately the materials would make great pens but together the combination is just wrong imho. Takes all sorts though and if that's what the customer wants.......................

    I would have refused point blank to make it though despite losing a sale

    Thanks all, I really appreciate the honest feedback and I thought it might provoke some strong opinions. It is a bit of a marmite pen there's no doubt.

    I did put it up on Instagram and it got a good response but it was grouped with a couple of very different looking Mazzuchelli Ceblox pens I made as part of the same commission, so maybe its those that people liked! I will post those on here later.

    Cheers
    Ash

    Not sure about the colour mix for me, but the shape, finish and fit looks superb.
