We were doing some work for them around the time the HBO mini series was being made. They had some very interesting stories to tell about the making of the film.

The bonus material on the DVD's were great!

Great story, Lenny! And a wonderful experience.
Pen looks great in a famous author's hands, too :)

Thanks, John.
Along with the pen and Certificate of Authenticity, I also included a few photos of some of the process, including one with the pens being finished using your eliminator bushings. I wish I had taken more photos as he was quite curious about it.
He immediately started thinking of different ideas, museums and people who might be interested in similar "projects" ... so ... we shall see!

Good for you Lenny, great job.


But personally, the book was a terrible read.
I have read better text amnuals on computer programs that 1776.
Sorry

Very, very cool. His "1776" was one of my favorite reads a few years ago.

I'd be interested to hear who else is getting the Washington Horse Chestnut Wood pens. I have a piece of that wood and the pen from it will be a birthday gift for someone "notorious" in either the good or the pejorative sense of that word, depending on your politics. It will be delivered around in the first week of December at which time I'll reveal the person's identity.

Thanks Peter!

I was also able to "show off" my inventory of pens as I asked Rosalee to pick one out for herself. I was curious what type of pen she would like.... she ended up picking a Jr. Gent II fountain pen in Amboyna burl, picking it over a Cherry burl Majestic jr. saying she liked the less ornate look. (I'm paraphrasing here but that was the idea I got from what she said) I thought that was interesting and good information to consider.
