Beautiful wood from the Holy Land!
This Olivewood from The Holy Land is beautiful. Every piece I have turned has its own unique patterns and designs in the wood. I recommend this wood to anyone making a pen for themselves or someone else who is religious, it will be a great gift.

Easy to turn, great looking wood.
I love using these blanks they turn so easy and when cut/scrapped they smell of olives. The highly figured grain just set the apart from other wood species. A little more expensive blank but worth the money. The authentication card is a nice touch and customers have told me it's a pen worth using in church.

I love the look and ease of turning.

Beautiful wood
I've made several pens out of this wood. It is easy to turn, is smooth with beautiful and interesting contrasting grain patterns. It certainly has the "wow" factor covered. All of the blanks I have used have been pretty straight and high quality.

First ever pen turning. Machined smooth...
First ever pen turning. Machined smooth and no breakout at whatsoever. Very happy with both the Rockler pen kit and the olive wood blank. Blank was long enough to make a second Manhattan pen with the same blank.

Good quality blanks. Cannot comment on...
Good quality blanks. Cannot comment on the similarity of purchasing multiple-blanks via the internet but I am usually able to find good quality blanks at my local Rockler. All of my olivewood pens have finished nice in lacquer & CA alike.
