Three Amigos.  Or maybe it should have been Muskateers, but they're not carrying muskets.  :P

 

 

Busy weekend.  Three wooden pens.

Eastman in some hard wood ribbon stuff.  No clue what it's called but it's pretty.

Aha!  And one more I nearly forgot to photograph.  :)

 

But first another group shot...

The same ribbon hardwood (do you know what it's called?) and red hard rubber.

Wow! Fantastic work!
I usually don't like the looks of wooden pens (or objects, for that matter), unless they're the darker, black/red kind.
But these are amazing to look at, and I'd bet even better to hold!
Out of curiosity, how would you fill any of them? Aside from the one with a twist-off bottom, of course.

Wow.. I love pens made of wood and these look amazing  :vbg:

 

Desert Ironwood gets my vote followed by Sandalwood. 

 

Will a deep brown ebonite section suit the pens?

 

Will you make 3 Musketeers (with clip) too?

Thanks!

The two are converter fill, and then the bulb filler of course.  :)

Yes I could make them with clips if you wanted.

Here's a Sandalwood pen with brown briar hard rubber.

I've gotten a couple of emails asking about these - this one is the only one that's available.

Those are gorgeous Shawn, I am rather partial to wooden pens, probably because they are rather rare and distinctive looking.  Will any of them be for sale to us mortals?

Only the one Eastman model I mentioned just above is still available - these were made for an order.  I have one other one that's still available, too...

But if you ever want one all you have to do is ask.  :)

Shawn:

Is the Eastman desert ironwood pen still available? How much does it cost? I'm interested! I'd be with a med steel nib and no clip.

BTW, can the section be changed to black or brown?

Thanks,

plumon

Those are amazing. I've been amassing wood for the day I can do justice for them, just like you have.

The Eastman looks like it is made of a wood called marblewood.

I ended up with a grab bag of exotic blanks from woodcraft, and it came with about 1/2 full of what I think is marblewood, and it looks just like this.

That's exactly it!  Wow thanks!

 

And the Eastman is - depending on which one you want.

 

This one with the flat top is.

And the wood Eastman is mine, after a short layover at the Arkansas pen show. SCORE!
