I think both you and Marc Phillips should be banned from this site.
It is not fair that you <b>both</b> dip your pens in oil just before you get a pro photographer to take a pic[}:)][:D]

Can't wait to get back home, I'm getting Lathe Withdrawal Symptons.[xx(]

Mark,
Superb pens!! Great Photos!! You got it down dude!!! I am having a tough time deciding which I like better. The DI is so deep and rich. The Maple has such great grain and eyes...
I haven't been a big fan of the Churchill, but with the right wood, it is the top! You hit it right on.

Wow Mark, those are amazing, very classy! Nice choice of woods. I have a few Churchills waiting for me and love them, but you all have me so freaked out about breaking the nib holders that I'm scared to try one. I just ordered the closed end mandrel from Bill, so soon I'll work up the courage! Very nice work, my friend!

Karl, these Churchills will not be sold due to the breakage problem.

If the manufactures ever produce a solution to this weak part, I will fix all my Churchills then sell them on![:)]
