For me that works out to about $.36 each for rosewood pen blanks.  Woodcraft's price for Bolivian rosewood is $1.25.  Looks like a good deal.  Biggest 2 problems I see:  Who would have an extra $1500 to spend on pen blanks?  And who has the extra space in their shop for 5000 pen blanks?  Sounds like a great deal for someone who is a dealer of some type.  Maybe we should forward this to Ryan @ woodturningz?

I love cocobolo, and that is a good price. If you can find 100 of your closest friends, and split it up, thats 50 blanks a piece- not too shabby

I emailed Ryan, and he responded with a thank you, but they already buy a lot from that company.

If 100 of us got in on it that would be like $15 right?  thats not bad for 50 blanks.  But then again to organize 100 people and get it done would be nerve wrecking bang head.

And then you have to pay the freight to get them to you, and then you have to pay the freight to send them to everybody else.

LOL, by then it becomes more expensive than just picking one up from the store.  So much for that.

If you go to his store you'll find he has Cocobolo Rosewood Pen Blanks--100 pieces for Buy Now for $30... that's $0.30 each plus shipping which would come out to about $0.46 each. Not a bad deal if you like turning Rosewood.
