Default Burly Slims

I finally have finished up my final batch of pens to give away to coworkers. Which makes about 70 total. I'm certain that a lot of wives ended up with the pen (most of my coworkers are men), but I see a few that guys use daily. It has proven to be a rewarding challenge, but these will be my last slimlines for a while.

This last batch I decided to use some "fancier" blanks, mostly because there is always someone bashing slimlines.

The burls are: black locust, eucalyptus, and claro walnut

The non-burls are: zebrawood, laurel Verde, bubinga, Indian rosewood, imbuya, blue Mahoe, makore, Oxhorn (bulletwood), and curly eucalyptus.

Wow, what a commitment you've got some lucky coworkers! Not surprised you don't want to see another slimline for a while.

Whew, that's a bunch of slims! Excellent job, and your coworkers should consider themselves fortunate to have such a great gift.
