    Re united

    Hi all,
    Well 10 years ago, I was happy to let this one go!!
    Just got to stick a new refill in and a bit of polish
    Well it was one of my first ones, I think I may have improved a bit....I hopeIMG_20191103_194942.jpg

    Always our own worst critics mark just as it should be but if the customer has been happy all this time then it's a success story.

    I think we all forget that the recipients rarely view the finished article as we do and are usually just amazed at the skill you have to be able to make it.

    PS one refill in 10 years isn't going to make Phil a happy chappie.

    It's amazing how we look back at our first try
    and think how good it looks.
    Look at it now and you begin to wonder, 'What was I thinking'.

    It's a miracle how much our pen turning and finishing improves
    as we age with experience.
