Hi Duncan

Those are couple of great pens from other makers, but I am more impressed with your fountain pens. They were also excellently photographed Duncan. I have to get better in that area.

I am really looking forward to my New Years Present to myself made by you from some super pieces of Honduran Rosewood. It just dawned on me that it will match the ball point pen you crafted for me from the same wood. It turns out that the nib Meister you are talking to is the most noted nib magician around anywhere...trust you to find the best!  Don't worry about the 'wet noodle'! Go with his advice regarding an excellent nib...stub...something that can give both fine and broad lines.

Good stuff my friend and I am happy to hear that Sandy left you unscathed.

All the best to you and yours

Leo
