I have always wanted to turn some Birds Eye Maple pens, as I have been impressed with the ones I've seen others turn. However, this 5-pack of blanks had very few "eyes." Out of the five blanks there were only two that had a handfull of "eyes," the others hand none. I have email the tech people about this and am looking forward to their response. I haven't turned any of the blanks yet as I will probably return them. I did ask the techs if the eyes show up once their turned.
