408 people have looked at this thread and 33 voted. Maybe the question is not cut and dry but it is not rocket science and I am not asking for your first born.

John you can’t go by the view count as visits by individuals. I’ve looked several times and this time was because I posted and got notified. I did say I didn’t vote because there was no “some of everything above”to choose. Picking one wouldn’t give you a true picture. A little like getting people to vote in a political election eh? ;)

I didn't vote either. Any one of those categories can have the "WOW" factor and on the same note, all of them might not have it. It takes more than just the blank material to wow me, there is so much more to also take into account. Though I must admit I do have a soft spot for spectacular timber, but it still needs to be done right to make it a wow pen.

I lean toward the simple but innovative pens. Along the Skiprat & Wizard line and such. To make a simple looking pen is not easy. It takes a lot of work and thought to get it right. But when it is right, WOW!!!

Again for people like Pete and others I understand every pen is different and can possibly be a WOW pen and make the front page and maybe be voted into the Hall of Fame or mounted on a pedestal somewhere I get it. But we all and you do, may not admit it like to look at certain style of pens and No I am not listing again. Maybe you like looking and always wanted to try that style but for some reason have not. Don't care. If you say you like all pens you are lying. Why is this so hard to comprehend I do not get it. Like I said I love segmenting pens more than any other style of pen shown. I saw Skips latest pen and not impressed because it does not appeal to me but I do know how much work goes into it. I gave it a like vote.

If you do not vote that is fine. Not much more I can say and I will leave it at this and post results at end of month. As I said what I am seeing right now from results is surprising and is raising another question for me but will ask at end of poll. Pete touched on something in his first post that is interesting and maybe the answer. Thanks again and enjoy your summer.

I did vote and keep returning to see comments. That would probably drive up the "view" count. Sorry, it's my fault...lol.

Vintage materials, non-round (sculpted, faceted, etc) pens, pens not made from component sets, pens with hand fabricated metalwork.

I find the phrase "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" more appropriate for the selection of an item, be it a pen or any other object that the beholder see's or wants. For me the reason for getting into pens/woodworking was for the "Christmas" surprise I find every time I turn a pen, or other objects whether it is JUST from a natural product or a combination of products, I can get a WOW or just a NEAT reaction.
