Imhave heard of that before, and the kit is hard to determine but needs to be the same for everyone for easier judging,, if your a fountain pen expert i want u to turn a cigar pen for example, so there needs to be an average kit, or each person needs to turn 3 different style kits, but then its hard to judge for the winner,, i will have to do some thinking... Thanls for the input,,Isn't it some kind of rule if you are making pens for troops they can only be slimlines because of the size retsraints of the uniforms???
So if you are having a contest I do not think it is fair to limit the kit if you are really after a talent contest. Alot of times you are limited to the kit size as to what you can do with a blank. Just some thoughts.
