Laser engraved pen

When I started posting my pens on facebook, someone asked if they could be engraved as well. He was interested in havig some of these pens made for a new company he started.

It took me a while to find a store in the neighbourhood that could do this sort of work, but I finally found one. I sent off the thickest pen I had to be sure the logo would be visible.

After a few weeks of anticipation, I recieved a call from the store informing me the engraving was done. And the result can be admired below.

since the pen gets a bit slimmer towards the end, the engraving is deeper towards the middle. this gives it a nice 3D effect.
