reposting this image since its about pens. From Revs (if I'm not mistaken, Im quite sure because I recognized the name) from the SS, I use this Zebra each and every day in my classrooms. I absolutely love it and its gotten me interested in getting more nice pens.
Of course this thread is about pens. And other things I turn. I started the leather thread for my leather projects.
If you like the Zebra 402, you ought to go get a Zebra 701 to compare the difference. 701 will run around $5 but it is a little heavier and I think it feels better in hand. Then, if you like that one, call me up and we can get you a custom made pen in acrylic or wood.
Which version of the bolt? What material? The bullet bolt with a basic wooden or basic acrylic body runs about $45 shipped priority. I can do a Tech bolt for the same. If you want a more exotic wood, fancy acrylic or stainless braid, the prices go up according to the blank cost. I know Gaboon ebony is getting very expensive lately. M3 metal blanks usually $20-30 to the price since they are so damn expensive.

Thinking of getting some new belts and some 1095 carbon steel and trying my hand at a cleaver and kiridashi. I think the little HF 1x30 with some Norton Blaze belts will do okay for a short while. Just need the funding to get the supplies. Meanwhile, I think I'll sketch out some ideas. Figure the kiri and cleaver will be easiest to get right. And 1095 I should be able to heat treat at home. Just need to repurpose the aluminum foundry to forge duties. 1475 F is doable out of it. Then quench and temper at 500-ish for a couple hours and on the sharpening and handles.
Well, tried a GITD blank that doesn't look plain when in the sun. I like it. I could also do a different glow color and use a different crushed stone. Might try a couple others. Still have some alumilite left.
