    The wood turns nice the black color does not go all the way through all pieces but it is consistant enough to turn a nice black pen.

    My previous review is in Error. That review is for the diagnal cut burmese blackwood. This wood is very nice, Easy to work with, Takes a great polish. Although the piece I got is so dark, you have to look closely to see any grain. Everybody loves the fountain pen I made from it.

    Best Uses

    Comments about Blackwood African Pen Blank 3/4" x 3/4" x 5" 5-Piece :

    1st piece ripped a chunk half the length of the tube when about 3/4 of the way ground down. requires a very light touch, as try to remove to much material at once results in pitting or large pieces being ripped off. However, with a light touch, and sharp tools, the piece takes a really good finish prior to any Samsung.
