    My first 5 pens

    These are my first pens. Have tried experimenting with various shapes and formats. They are shown in the order in which they were turned, with the first one on the left.
    I think the 1st 2 are better, as need to improve my technique, accuracy and finish on the others.
    Lots more practice required!!9CF1F5C4-0F7E-4135-9D06-66731FEEA844.jpg

    They all look neat and tidy Gavin, no: 1 is my preferred shape for My Slimlines, no : 5 is ok but the shape seems a bit weak, I think it would have been better to keep it slim all the way down IMHO. What finish did you use?
    Kind regards John.

    Well done on those, Gavin.
    I prefer the first one as well.
    Try some streamlines
