    Oh dear, it sports a section band that's subject to corrosion in moisture, like inside a cap or a head.

    I think you'd need a hammer and an unconscious victim to drive a pen that far into the temporal lobe.

    I'm surprised no one has commented on the brand. The first thing I did was look it up, finding (of course) that the brand didn't exist. And that is when it dawned on me:

    Cygne is French for Swan. That's a clever bit right there.

    P.S. We've very much enjoyed the series, through #5, which we just saw courtesy a 30-day trial of Hulu. Next up? Signing up for BritBox to see Season 6!

    Jon, I hope you hadn't spent all night on eBay, FPN and Pentrace trying to buy a Cygne in your favorite color combo.
