Default 1/8” & 1/4” Aluminum Honeycomb Side by Side

Both Penkits are MK2 Shakespeare - polished stainless steel. What size honeycomb do you like better? I’m not sure I have a preference.

For a honeycomb looking effect I think smaller is better.

They both look nice but I think the 1/4" allows the resin to show off its multiple colors without too much aluminum getting in the way. For a solid color either look good.

I agree with JohnU. Both look good, but unless it's a solid colors the 1/4" shows more of the color. Both are very well done, Phil!

I like the finer mesh better ... based on the pictures you show.

Don't ASK ... I might lie. Don't TELL me ... I’ll forget. But if you SHOW me I might remember; and if you INVOLVE me I’ll probably get it.
