The bamboo pen is one of the best of that style I've seen. It's the first of that style I've though I actually wouldn't mind owning.

I like that curvy style - it looks as if it would be very comfortable in the hand, and the material is lovely. Altogether a stunning set of pens. I think you've been having fun making them!

Amazing work, as always!! I've been thinking about adding another one of your pens to my collection, and I think that black ebonite one might push me over the edge!

Very inspiring work and wonderful variety of materials.
Can I come over to Canada for a Master Class in pen making?

As someone who has only ever owned stock/big box pens your work is fascinating. Especially love the Arctic Blue and Springtime models. Do you maintain a web store or only post in the sales section here?
