This is my first set of commissioned pens. 5 initial pens out of a total of 12 (the other 7 will be completed in the coming weeks). Ebonized cherry with gunmetal hardware. Finished with a mixture of 1/3 shellac + 1/3 denatured alcohol + 1/3 BLO and a couple coats of friction polished paste wax (BLO + beeswax). Emphasis on dark color with the smooth grain of cherry. The BLO in the finish should also darken over the coming days and weeks since it gets darker when it comes in contact with acid (the vinegar in the ebonizing solution).
