Default Thin Blue Line pens

I started making these in support of those in law enforcement.

I have a few slim line kits from years ago; I may flatter you :-) by emulating your profile....that is real nice. Thank you for the idea!

Thank you both! For a long time that was the only profile I turned. I have just in the last couple of month really started to experiment with a few more traditional profiles.

I still turn mainly twist pens, simply because of how cheap they are to buy the kits for. I am making enough doing this for it to pay for the supplies, but I have not really started investing in the more expensive kits yet. I have done a few fountain pens, and I do some of the .30 caliber bullet pens, but I am still learning and mistakes are a lot easier to swallow when you only have $1.65 in a kit.

Buddy, an even less expensive way is to buy extra tubes for nice pens and experiment with things. That way you only spend $0.50 - $1.50 per style and then you only assemble the kits you are pleased with.

Even cheaper - if you don't like the barrels, turn the material off the tubes and start again. I always have lots of extra tubes on hand, just in case...

I have actually bought a couple packs of spare tubes and have been doing this with the twist pens.
