    TM Ares in Jarrah Burr wood

    Pen kit-TM Ares
    Finish - Melamine Lacquer
    Material - Jarrah Burr wood (Eucalyptus from Australia)

    Should have polished it to remove the sticky finger marks off the chrome bits before taking pictures

    Eamonn, this time I love everything you have done with this, Jarrah, not my favourite but like the wood. Is it just me or is that kit the most ghastly unimaginative bit of design I’ve ever seen? The whole thing looks like a sterile bit of medical kit, the charismatic design, not, of the clip must have taken at least two minutes on a bad day? Bit like Monty Python flower arranging, first get a bunch of flowers and put them in a vase, bang bang bang!
    There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are this man's lawful prey. (John Ruskin 1819-1900)

    Didn’t know monty python did flower arranging

    Agree it’s a very plane kit but sometimes the simple ones win the day!

    Monty Python, live at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane 1974, a sketch between Eric Idle and Michael Palin,

    Eric Idle:) Tonight's talk on flower arranging is given by the reader and comparative flower arrangement at the University of Vanessa Redgrave, Mr. D.P. Gumby!

    (sound of audience cheering)

    (Michael Palin:) Good evening! First take a bunch of flowers! Putting down here tulips, chrysanthe...dum..mum..munums! Them...arrange them in a vase! Ah..(sound of hammering) ah, get in!


    The artistic merits of flower arranging were in the firing line as was some unknown pseudo intellectual Redgraveism of the day.
