    New Pen Gloat

    Well, I had a pleasant surprise just now. I got a box from Mack Cameron with a spectacular Kingwood pen.

    A while ago, Mack expressed some interest in the Kingwood that I found locally. So I sent him a little--enough for 2 pens. And guess what! He made one of the pens for me.

    Of course it was wrapped beautifully, and he sent refills too.

    Look how neat it is. It's really comfortable to hold with that shape. I think this one is going on my night table with Ike's box.

    Not to take away from Cynthia's gloat, but I promised I would help her out in this regard! Her photography is good, but here's my pic of it, just in case, anyone wants a closer look!

    This pen is a single piece of wood throughout. It is really just masquerading as a 2 piece pen.

    I'm so glad Cynthia liked it. It was the prototype for a number of similar pens I have turned since!

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

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!
