    Default Made this pen for my sisters 40th, let me know what you think.

    So it was her birthday and I made her this pen. It has a satin black section and a black bock #6 nib that i bought in (I am only just learning to make my own sections), and was given to her loaded with Diamine Onyx Black ink. She likes black, a lot.

    Smart!

    I have just been looking at your pen-making website and think you have not only a lot of talent and 'potential' (please excuse the term, i am positively amazed at how good your examples are considering only six months experience), but also you have a definite eye for style.

    Thank you very much! Everyone has been saying i have 'found my talent' with this. I am looking to get my own lathe soon now too, i have been using a very old one at the moment which has a few things which don't work and/or need repairing on it. I think that will help when it comes to using a newer lathe.

    Thank you very much. On a total separate note your location jumped out at me, Puget sound is near Seattle isn't it? I play a lot of a game called shadowrun which is based around that area as its prime setting.
