Apart from yew, and anything with the word 'burr' attached to it, are there any woods native to the uk that have a great grain or colour from which to make pens etc? most of the pens i see with the 'ooooo...' factor seem to be exotics like cocobolo, amboyna, myrtle etc, while most natives , oak, ash, syc, etc seem a bit bland in comparison, any suggestions? with pics?
