After a day of running around I managed to turn two pens The first (main picture) is a Pazazz kit with a eucalyptus burr finished with BLO/CA.

I like the affect of the second one, very impressive just remember to try and keep a good level using you're bushes so that there isn't a "small step" between the acrylic, clip and centre band.

I do like using burrs, have you ever tried burr oak boiled in iron filings until it's more or less black?

Also on the acrylic pen is the nib end (top) black acrylic or Blackwood?

Please keep posting and sharing.

Thank you for the comments KR

On the Polyester there is no step and the second the darker material is the pen kit Gun metal which has shown up a little darker than it is.

But if you did notice on the Pazazz kit the very top on the lid there is a slight lipblush which unfortunately shows up worse than it actually is.
