    Great looking group of pens Martin.
    Haha, hope your talking about the second pictue because I am going to have trouble putting the shavings back on I don't have a problem with curves, generally I like things with a bit of a curve, just not personally a fan of fat pens & curving a lot of them seems to make them quite fat lol
    Even the slimline pens I have made have been straight !!

    So today I assembled the Yew pen & reduced the curve on the Elm pen & made that up as well.

    Thanks for all the advice

    The elm has it I would say - from where I'm sitting anyway. Better contour than the yew. In fact a perfect contour for those components IMHO. Very good indeed.

    Good job Martin. Mission accomplished.
    The elm shape is very similar to the example that Phil posted earlier, and looks good.
    I think that the yew is more than acceptable.

    Thanks for the comments, Phil I did the Yew blank first & I think I was a little to worried about undercutting the ends with already having turned the ends to size. Having done one I probably had a little more confidence with the second one lol
