    By  Palaswood

    from Lake Forest, CA

    About Me Quality Oriented

    Pros

    • High Quality Blanks
    • Many Full Length 5
    • Mostly Exotic

    Cons

    • Mostly B W Ebony
    • So Many Of The Same Type

    Best Uses

    • Some Very Cool Shorts

    Comments about 5-lbs. Pen Blank Grab Bag :

    More than half is black and white ebony (so may resell some), but I got Snakewood, spalted sycamore, pink ivory short, something super dark and hard I can't identify (may be stabilized), and some random shorts for keychains. All in all a very good value. Almost all is exotic apart from the 2 semi-birdseye maple blanks & the sycamore.

    Comments about 5-lbs. Pen Blank Grab Bag :

    my wife asked me to make crochet handles due to arthritis in her hands,most store bought hooks are very small in diatmeter and are extreamley hard to hold on to, these blanks did the job for her. turned like a pen, almost, with minor adustments and she can now do her corchet with ease again.

    It's an alright bag of wood for [$]

    By  codeman

    from Maple Valley WA

    Pros

    • Nice wood

    Cons

    • No quality control

    Best Uses

    • Pen's

    Comments about 5-lbs. Pen Blank Grab Bag :

    The bag of wood has some good exotic and domestic wood. Theirs almost no shorty's. The down side to this is that theirs no quality control. Theirs a piece in their that the ends are cut to a point, which you have to cut down to size. But, other then the quality, it's a good product for the price.

    Somewhat disappointing

    By  Jesse

    from Southern California

    About Me

    Pros

    • Some good samples
    • Some variety

    Cons

    • Many unusable pieces

    Best Uses

    Comments about 5-lbs. Pen Blank Grab Bag :

    The largest number of blanks were totally unusable as pen blanks; they appeared to be just small pieces of soft fir. Also, about 1/3 of the good pieces were split badly, and some were just too small. The ad says domestic and exotic pen blanks, but there just weren't that many of them in the bag. Overall? Disappointing and not up to Woodcraft standards.

    Lots of blanks, but only 20 or so were really something i would use. The ones that were good were actually very good quality with lots of figuring (Cocobolo). out of 83 blanks, 20 were good. Not to many shorties.

    great wood lot but unlabled

    Pros

    • Lots of varity

    Cons

    • Unlabled kinds of wood

    Best Uses

    Comments about 5-lbs. Pen Blank Grab Bag :

    38 blanks in the bag and all in good quality. About 4 or 5 shorties and 1 gem quality(shorty.) All of the blanks were unlabeled even though the description states that they will be labeled. I run a business selling what I make and my customers expect me to be able to tell them what kind of wood they are buying from me. I'm now gonna have to spend hours trying to ID the wood I received.

    Quite a bit of blanks, but of what?

    By  Glenn

    from Arkansas

    About Me Value Oriented

    Pros

    Cons

    Best Uses

    Comments about 5-lbs. Pen Blank Grab Bag :

    There were 72 blanks and about 10 "shorties." Unfortunately I don't know what any of it is. I guess, as long as they make good pens, I'll be happy. It only cost me [$] (on sale), so I can afford to mess up quite a few. These will be my first pens. There were a bunch of striped dark ones, maybe a few purpleheart and a few yellowheart. There were also a bunch of non-descript rather plain-looking pale wood, perhaps even softwoods. We'll see how I like it after I turn a few. But really, [$] for 72+ blanks is a pretty good value. There's bound to be some gems in there.

    I have ordered four of these. Two I picked in the store and two were ordered online. If you can see what you are getting it's a fantastic deal. The two I ordered online had a lot of the same wood.
