Cool looking pens Roger. I really like the letter openers. Outstanding work. Too late to use them to write to Santa. LOL.

Nice work Roger. Especially like the looks of that Ebony (that wasn’t to subtle was it?). Reviewing your work to date I can only presume that you have a large family and cadre of friends that are writers. Merry Christmas to you and yours and have a prosperous and productive New Year.

Great pens, and I’m sure the recepients will cherrish them. I am particularly fond of the last straight Padauk one as the size and straight lines would preform nicely in my normal grip. The letter openers are also wonderful. Not being negative with these questions as I’ve never seen or held one of these, but I aks. As far as the bullet design does the bolt handle have to be positioned in a particular attitude in order to scribe comfortably, and does it present a problem inserting it into your pocket to carry?
