Very nice. I’m an admirer of all your pens. I’ve done a few pens, and have yet to see any of the “creative” shapes that I prefer to traditional shapes, flawlessly made, like yours. I seem obsessed with boxes these days, but there’s always time to appreciate other fine work. Well done.

Thank you, guys. I am obsessed with boxes as well, Roger, but Christmas is right around the corner and Santa’s busiest elf needs to make some presents for friends and family!
