There is no doubt, we are going to give it a shot, I was just wondering about basic pricing. I still find it quite astounding that someone would pay 20$ for a wooden pen, never mind any more than that. I guess that’s because I know what goes into it – about 4$ in supplies and about 30 minutes of my time. But then again it takes close to 600$ on the cheap side to make the pen (lathe, tooling, place for the lathe, cutting tools, sharpening method, etc), but those are fun toys for me anyway that I never planned on making money with or recouping the investment. We’ll start the pricing at 20$, but will take as low as 5$
