    These are the entries for the March 2016 Competition A Pen/Pencil for Arthritis Users.

    Please don't comment on individual entries and do not click the Like or Thank You buttons for any of the entries.

    At the moment there is no VOTE BOX as that has to be set up by Jim and when he is home from work I am sure he will sort it.

    I have put them up just so you can have a preview of the wonderful shapes that have been entered in this competition. I think you will agree we have some brilliant entries showing great imagination. Thank you to everyone who entered we have surpassed all previous numbers for a competition with a record 16 entries, lets keep doing that with each competition

    Here is a link to How to Vote or Nominate the pen you would like to win.

    Remember you have only 1 vote so don't click the box until you are certain it is the right box.

    If you use Tapatalk can you please let us know if you are able to Vote/Nominate or not. If you can't you may have to use a computer to make your Vote/Nomination until Jim says otherwise.

    There will be 6 days to Vote/Nominate including today so it will end Wednesday 6th. April 2016

    It is a kitless rollerball, made from acrylic and ebonite, using a rollerball refill and spring. The grip is wrapped in a soft rubber, to allow the user to have something soft to grip- this was a suggested requirement online. It is also quite chunky, so that it can be gripped with restricted hand movement. Rather than a difficult thread on the cap, it is a push fit with an o-ring keeping it in place and airtight. It is designed to be lightweight, so is only a little longer than the refill itself.

    I've always tried to make my pens pleasing on the eye & comfortable to hold. Arthritis sufferers who use my pens say they are comfortable. This pen is made from cross cut oak.

    I've combined a long wood and a euro kit to make it more comfortable to use and easier to propel the ink. The blank is homemade out of cast crushed stone in the colours of arthritis research.

    Threaded Slimline Kit. The blank is from Exotic Blanks and called Prismatic Spring.
    Designed with a little extra bulbous section to help prevent the hand slipping down to the nib.

    Gunmetal slimline made up with mottled beech, with a custom purplehart centre ring. This is thicker than the average slimline to allow for a better grip, but retains the ease of advancing the point found in the slimline design. Finished with finishing oil, then buffed.
