Seems to me like you might have missed an opportunitry here.

At 12., she is old enougbh to learn how to make her own pens. Imagine how proud she would be to use a pen she crafted for herself!!

Yes -- it's definitely on her list of things to do now, and mine too --- she also showed interest in making one for herself. After she gets home from her summer vacation visiting her grandparents, we will definitely tackle that one, probably a ballpoint. I'm thinking a 7mm streamline instead of a slimline. any other ideas on a good "first" kit?

I'm kinda partial to the Sierra click kit. Only one barrel and not so many parts to assemble. Seems like a good starter kit for a kid or even an adult.

I agree that a slimline would not be my first choice or my second, or my third..... Only reason you might consider a SL would be if she has really small hands and a thin pen would be more comfortable for her to use.
