I'm not a fan of slimline pens. I won't say I hate them, but I definitely dislike them. A good friend of mine, though, wanted a slim pen. I was going to buck it up and make a slimline pen for her, until I saw these kits at Woodcraft. It's called a Slim Style Hybrid, in satin gold. The wood is zebrawood, and the finish is Watco Danish oil. I must say, as far as slim pens go, this is probably my favorite. I think she'll really like it.
