    Of all the feathered pens, I think I like the duck feathers the best. Beautiful pen. I received a pheasant feather blank a week ago, anxious to see if I can turn it. I wish I had gotten duck.

    No, I don't cast my own blanks yet.
    I am currently working on it though.

    I have been getting the feather blanks from John Underhill.
