    Elm spanner clip pen

    VAN DIEMANS Land AKA Tasmania Franklin Square twenty years ago brought down at 150 yrs of age. From a scrap Elm Burl is beautiful. The hexes are cut dead centre at the tip and off centre at the clip (adjustment needed at the biro) to allow a full press the kit has a crazr protudence at the clip entry to the body of the pen this allows full pressing.

    Heaps of fun tried for a rugged look and finish to suit the subject.

    Peter.

    Interesting pen kit with a very unusual wood turned /shaped design. I like it a lot. Well done Peter for another experience of pushing the bounders of this hobby.

    Lovely Pen Peter. The Kit and shaping work perfectly together!
    Measure Twice, cut once, then force it to fit.

    That lovely piece of elm just elevates your pen to a great height.
