    Pens for Canadian Peacekeepers

    My latest project of pen turning was a 3 person joint effort.

    One friend supplied some of the wood blanks, which were Sugar Maple salvaged from the floor boards of large trucks used by the army in WWII, along with a dozen slimline pen kits.

    A lady friend supplied an accompanying letter to go with the pens to the peacekeepers.

    Yours truly supplied the Cigar pens as well as all of the turning.



    The Cigar pens, 7 Sugar Maple, 2 from a Hackberry tree that was struck down by a tornado in 2010.



    All slimlines in various states of dress.

    All of the pens will be sent to the troops with the original kit cartridge as well as a replacement cartridge of Private Reserve Ink in an Easy Flow 9000 refill.

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

    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Good for you Mack, I know how my son and his fellow sailors enjoyed the ones that Jonathan sent.
