I'm tempted, but I really like it just the way it came.
If you guys dont like your pen, id be interested in one (preferable color code 1).

Use at your own risk... here are finishing tips for micarta.. scroll to the bottom of the page: http://www.alphaknifesupply.com/zdata-g10micarta.htm
When you sand G10 and micarta the layers look similar to wood grain. When you are finished sanding the handle may look chalky or dull. If you want the orginal color:
1) Wash the handle thoroughly with Dawn dish soap
2) Spray the handle with WD-40
3) Wash the handle with Dawn again
How feasible do people think it would be to convert the micarta to a pneumatic filler?
Actually, the more I look at it, the more I would like to try it.
I like how unique this material is, but ive yet to buy one.
Both of these TWSBI Micartas look gorgeous. Now I want one...
Thanks for the pics.

Darnit guys - you've made me want a Micarta, if only to sand and stain it. :/
Nice, what ink is that?
