I keep a cup full of pens I have made in the past and that for reasons that I cannot explain decided to keep. Most of these pens are failed experiments or flawed in some way. I wanted to experiment with my photography and started looking through my mostly reject cup and ran across a kitless pen that I made a couple of years ago. In retrospect the pen was a complicated effort in that I took an unusual approach to making the blank and it is one of my better efforts at making a bespoke pen. I am not sure why I forgot it.
