My first try at high end....

Well I figured I would pony up and try turning a high end pen kit with an M3 black lava blank. If you haven't used the lava blank and want to just be sure to keep your tools razor sharp and I would recommend going heavy on the sanding toward the end because any mistake can be catastrophic for the blank as I found out on my first try but here is the new blanks with the PSI Sceptre Kit...as you can tell my next project is a photo set-up!

Looks awesome, I always wanted to order the lava blanks, but just didn't feel confident about it, I like it

Very nice -- I think your choice of blank to go with that kit is excellent. Don't want them fighting with each other for attention
