Default And we're off!

Entries are coming in. Keep them coming.

Think twice about posting your qualifying pen in the SOYP forum. You just might win a fabulous prize.

Here's a picture of a pen made from the whitest holly blank you've ever seen, white plated hardware, on a white background.









Isn't it georgous?
