    Pen of the Week - 6th August 2018

    This week's Pen of the Week is chosen by me, and goes to the pair of black titanium Mistrals by @Bammer

    When the choice of POTW falls to me, I try to avoid choosing pens made from Beaufort pen kits if I can. I'm very conscious of how easy it would be to turn the place into something less than objective, which I am determined should never happen. However, this week, I'm afraid I just can't help myself as there is no doubt in my mind that the stand out pen this week (or pair in this case) is Brads. We're all used to Brad's high levels of standards and skills, but the choice of wood he has used on this pair, the quality of turning and finishing and not least of all the photography and presentation are aspirational in my view. In short, I have pen envy, and wouldn't mind owning them and writing with them. Well done Brad - that is a beautiful pair of pens (but I doubt I can afford your prices)



    Here's the link to Brad's original post. A pair of Black Tiitanium Mistrals
    Do have a look if you haven't done so already - the other photos of this pair are definitely worth seeing too.
