Default Freestyle Pen Contest Rules

In addition to the Universal Bash Guidelines, the contest rules are as follows:



1. It must write.
2. It must be made by you.
3. You may use any and all tools at your disposal as long as you are the one that operates it. Cnc, Laser, waterjet, foot lathe, stone mill any and all techniques.

The trademark of this contest is it has the most freedom for creative design.
This is the contest where we stretch the boundaries of our craft and put more emphasis on the concept and the design than on function. We are looking for the pen that inspires pen design for the next year. There have been space ships, modern rifles, medieval weapons, musical instruments, spongebob, a hat with a feather in it, dragons, a stack of animals that were carved out of brass, lab equipment, and others, use your imagination.
It can be a custom slimline, or a cigar, etc. style of pen that you have fully customized and is no longer a kit pen. You can use a stock clip but consider making a roll stop instead. All Entries must be family friendly, nothing gross, disgusting or vulgar please.
