Custom: Comfort Pen and Pencil in Purpleheart
This customer wanted a pen/pencil set, in the Comfort style, made of Purpleheart, using a gunmetal finish. In that style, my pen parts supplier offers that finish as "Black T/N" (for Titanium Nitride), a high-durability metal finish. The "T/N" is embossed into the clip of the pen and pencil.
Often, when I'm making a bespoke item, I order enough supplies to make two or more. This gives my customers a choice, and gives me some leeway to either make mistakes or be creative. And it expands my inventory.
This photo shows both purpleheart pairs, completed. Although it is difficult to see in this photo, the tag on the left is set "A" and the tag on the right is set "B".

This customer also wanted a presentation box to go with this pair off pens. At the time these pens were ready, I had presentation
boxes for pairs available in five species: Cedar, Cherry,
Maple, Tigerwood, and Walnut.
