    Black Dyed Buckeye

    Greetings pen people.

    Made this today. The wood is dyed and stabilised buckeye burr from a batch of different coloured blanks I bought off a guy on Facebook. The threads and finials are cellulose acetate and the accents & logo coin are sterling silver. Fitted with a Bock nib.

    I always fully sleeve the cap on wooden pens, and I decided to fully sleeve the barrel on this one as well, partly to give a better mechanical (threaded) joint for the finials. The final photo shows the component parts. (I dispensed with the red collar on the section in the end).

    Cap threads are 13mm and the pen is around 145mm closed.

    Cheers
    Ash

    Buckeye burr has to be one of the top timbers for a pen, add a bit of silver and you have elevated this to another level.
    A masterpiece, Ash.

    Ash that's a really good looking pen. Buckeye is a favorite of mine.
    I put my symptoms in web M.D. and it turns out I'm just old.

    Thanks Mark and I can’t remember who I got these from either! It’s definitely not an age thing…
