    Default My swap pen from Keltrader

    I think our swap pens crossed paths over the ocean somewhere in the past couple of days. I got word from Kelvin that he received my swap to him yesterday.

    I received my swap from him, this a.m., Tycoon RB turned in Red Mallee burl along with some unnmamed timbers which will come in usefully.


    Kelvin made mention of the fact that I have more grandchildren than he has turned pens. Considering that, he has produced a special pen for me! Thanks, Kel!
    It feels really great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    MarineRaider (Frank) sent a few extra blanks to stop the Fountain pen from rolling around - the large piece is Olive from his sons tree. and the blank on the pen has FANTASTIC colour (pitty my camera work doesn't show it properly
    Thanks Mark for the comment on the color of the pen I sent you. Just for the record the timber was of Chinese Spitache, and from Lodi, Calif. USA It was a wind blow down from a storm in 2010. Can't waite for a pen from him as it will be my first trade with Australia.

    My pen came in from aussiepens (John Evans) and what a beaut it is

    This Australian Elegant Beauty is made from fiddleback Tasmanian blackwood, and although the picture does not do it justice, the amazing grain in this pen seems to just come alive as the pen moves. I am not sure of the finish but I will guess WOP. Let me know if I am correct John.

    There is also a rather awesome selection of pen blanks I can't wait to turn

    John, I sure hope you enjoy the package I sent as much as I know I will enjoy this one.

    Regards,

    Kevin

    P.S. I cannot seem to upload photo's at this time, I have sent a request to the webmaster for enlightenment I will get them on A.S.A.P

    This one was from Alexander (Vallealbert) from San German Puerto Rico.

    The Rollerball pen is a Retro Rhodium plated and is very well dressed in a Cuban Mahogany Crotch timber.
    Alexander has advised me that all of the timber blanks are also native of Puerto Rico and all very nice.
    Absolutely stunning pen and blanks.
    Very much appreciated Alexander and the pen will become one of the first pens to start off my very own personal Pen collection.

    Thanks
    Tony.

    Tony, I'm glad you liked the pen and the blanks... it have been a great pleasure to swap pen and blanks with you... your pen will be greatly treasured!! I still owe you post some pics of the pen you sent me...I hope during this week. Take care and enjoy your pens.

    Alexander
