Leopardwood exhibits a deep reddish-brown color with a distinctively flecked grain pattern that is caused by the wood's prominent medullary rays. Quartersawn sections of the pen blank will showcase the most spotted figuring. It is straight-grained with medium-coarse texture and takes a very nice finish. With sharp tools, this dense wood turns beautifully.

Pen for Wife
Made my wife a pen with this, since she liked the way the wood looked (I wasn't to impressed with it initially). However, once turned and finished this made a beautiful slimline pen for her and she loves it!

Makes a beautiful pen. I did not leave with a glossy finish. The natural texture is too unique to hide.

Good beginner pen making.

Nice grain to the wood; inexpensive, and may make a less expensive pen kit look high end.
