    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Absolutely gorgeous, Mack.
    Just what we've come to expect from you.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Hey Mack,
    You have been busy.... that is a real nice collection of pens.. I don't think I've eveer done a Perfect Fit.... is that like the Euro's only with a better clip... BTW, I really like the clips, they have a better flow than the square clips you see on so many pens. I like your choices of woods too... really nice.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Great work as usual, Mack. The burls are my favorites out of this batch.

    Hi Chuck; I never really saw or made that connection. The Perfect Fit might be just somewhat heftier in the body, but not enough to really notice. I just like the kit.
    BTW, I really like the clips, they have a better flow than the square clips you see on so many pens.
    Moi aussie! (Me too!)
    I like your choices of woods too...
    Customers seem to gravitate to the lighter woods or those that show some character in the pen. The darker woods with their exotic sounding names e.g. Pauduk, Purple Heart, Jatoba, just take up space in my inventory.

    Nice ones Mack. You sure got that baby purring along.
