    As you know, the only likely source is Bespoke British Pens. They bought all the remaining Conway Stewart rod stock.

    You might also try John Twiss pens in the UK.

    Did not know that, now I do.

    Looks like I'm screwed then.

    I see that Razorshell is available. I tried to order a CS in that material shortly before the company went down the tubes. Never heard a peep.

    I was looking for some Nebula blanks, and found the same source. Too bad they didn't have any to offer.

    Bespoke did not buy all the C.S. rod stock, they bought a lot of the components but Vince at Woodturners also bought a lot of blanks although he has started to run out of a few colours.
    Custom pen makers like Shawn Newton, Brian Gray and Renee Meeks in the US order from him and he splits between selling it on ebay and his own website http://www2.theturnersworkshop.co.uk...en-blanks.html
    where he also has Erinoid, Omas and other stuff. He is reliable, I have bought from him.
