These blanks are a stunning alternative to using wood. Just like wood, no two blanks are ever exactly the same.
These are in fact embossed leather glued to a Venetian pen tube, before being cast in clear resin.
When turning the blanks make sure that your tools are sharp and that your lathe is at the highest speed. Take light cuts with a skew or gouge.
For finishing the blanks we highly recommend using the Micro-Mesh pads, these will give you outstanding results.
Carefully wrapped around a 3/8" brass tube (8.80mm inner dia. x 9.30mm outer dia.), encased in clear, non-yellowing acrylic, then hand turned to an exact pen profile, polished to a mirror-like shine, and finally assembled into the pen style of your choosing. All are guaranteed to elicit very interesting conversations.
