A simple segmented pen
#11
  
I have seen a few pens shown here so thought i would post one that I finished today. I was finally able to get in my shop after my back went out on me a couple weeks ago. I finished up a blank for a pen I was making. This is a Sierra Vista chrome kit with a black acylic and aluminum celtic knot that i made. Spun it and polished to a high shine. Thanks for looking and any questions or comments are always welcomed.

Cool  Sleek looking.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Very pretty. Is that knot a specialty blank that you turned?

Not sure what a specialty blank is. But I made this blank from black acylic and cut the celtic knot design in it and filled with 1/16" aluminum. Glued that in place using epoxy. Then spun it round and finished and polished it. 

I added this to a series of pens I have been making that I use black acrylic and aluminum.

A specialty blank would be one of those premade blanks you buy and just turn.  Since you are making these yourself, if you have some pictures of the process I would love to see em.  Especially how you get that aluminum into position and how you form it and position it in a mold.

The joinery on your segments looks perfect. Nice work.
