New pens for today......

These are from the slimline collection. I thought I would spruce them up a little and give them a little more beefy look.No two are ever alike.What you think???

Donny, great looking pens. I always make my pens completely straight. I think they look better that way but yours look very nice. I may have to reconsider and add a little something extra to my next one. Nice job.

Don,
I like the pens, the shapes and details you put in. The only detraction is the skinny band in the middle. Kinda reminds me of a fat broad in too tight a girdle. You ought to see if you could get a band from one of the other kits like a european pen which is a larger band to start with. You would just have to size your ends accordingly. The pen would probably end up looking like you started with a euro kit, but with the skinnier guts of the slimline, it lets you put in the deeper details that you have. Very nice blanks you used. I like all the different woods you used.
