For a pen that will truly stand out among its wooden peers, turn your next barrel out of Purpleheart. The brilliant purple color with subtle, smooth grain patterns beneath will yield breathtaking results!
I guess I was expecting purple insides, or purple wood. Turns out it was just some purple stain on the outside and basic, boring, brown wood inside. I finished the pen, but ultimately disliked it so much I could not give it to anyone. It was just so plain with that brown wood, no grain or anything, and definitely no purple.
