    Jet black acrylic Gold and Gunmetal Sirocco

    I found this one hard work, took several attempts through all the grits to get it smooth, but worth the effort. I did have a bit of an issue with the blank at one end of the tube and had to take it down about 3/16", so had to shorten the pen refill by the same amount to make it fit. I won't be able to sell this one but I'll give it away to family and let them know I will have to change the pen refill when the time comes :-)

    I hate black blanks, they show EVERY imperfection, not that I have any
    Nice job, well done

    I find the Sirocco difficult with the shaping that is. Like your pen agree black though beautiful is a beast to finish,you made it look easy,well done.

    A really good looker Doug. Well worth the effort.
