Wow, you have been very busy. Thank you for sharing.

 

You're welcome. Yes, each batch is considerable work before you can start turning the pen. And only after the material is polished do you see the outcome. But it is gratifying to see the result emerge and whether it is like you envisioned it.

I actually like both combinations -vlinear and mixed, and higher contrast rippled (though I think that probably this one may enhance the colours best). You did well in using both in your first batch.

 

Colour wise, maybe you could try some yellow, dark orange, light blue...

 

Cool, thanks for your input. I will try that combination, sort of like colors in a candle flame. Neat suggestion.

 

Joe B.

A really good strong yellow would be amazing. Or brown and cream.


Too many pens, too little time!

Thanks for your suggestions. I agree. I have been working on a dark brown and creme and also a dark green and cream, These will probably be in my next few batches.

On the yellow, do you mean solid yellow? The solid colors that I have done are also very cool, best appreciated in the hand, up close so the weave can be discerned.

 

Thanks, Joe B.

Erick,

Thanks for your interest. Although I am not set up for any sort of volume, I have made individual custom pens with this material. PM me if you are interested.

This is a gorgeous pen. It's very similar to the color of one of my knife handles.

Always wanted a micarta pen and Joe made it happen - navy white arco micarta. Love the perfect grain alignment on cap, barrel and section too.

A clipless purple/yellow would look great I think. I love how these look. Thanks for sharing your work!
