    That's a new wood to me, Les, but it looks good. How does the Olympia kit compare to the Perfect Fit?

    Looks like a spring loaded clip, and a nice greek design on the band. Very nice...

    I do like the black titanium finish, thats for sure...

    Ok, Time to put the pressure on Les to show us how he does the photos.

    The pens are gorgeous as usual, but what I wanna know is how do you take such great pictures!

    It's about as simple as can be, but the results are worth a million bucks.

    Thanks Vaughn,

    Here are some Caragana Pen blanks I milled from some Caragana trunks that show the dark Heartwood and Yellow Sapwood.
