Price is per blank.
This pre-tubed Sierra|Virage blank features Aluminum and Copper "plates" placed on the tube with a polyester resin covering that you can turn. The Copper and Aluminum have a lot of steampunk grime on them. The copper section stamped with a Skull & Crossbones design gives this Steampunk inspired blank a pirate feel to it.
The blanks have a forged, industrial, and Steampunk vibe to them. They look spectacular with the choice of platings available for the Sierra and Virage twist ballpoint pen kits. All of the blanks have different patterns though some look very similar.
The pen blanks are hand-made by a fellow turner in the US. He recommends sealing the ends with thin CA glue after they have been squared/trimmed.
You can finished these blanks with the following steps or by using your own preferred method:
• 400 grit dry sand to shape the profile
