    Clicks!

    A couple of Taylors Mirfield click kits made up.
    The British made Pratchett kit in Whitebeam is for the 99 year old gent who owned the tree, followed by the new Athena 88 in Burr spalted Elm.

    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Very good pens, Neil, well turned and finished.
    I like both timbers but especially the elm, which has great depth to it.
    I don't know either of those kits as the only click pens I've made have been Tempests.
    The top one looks like it is comfortable to hold.

    These are odd ones for me Alan as I rarely make pens for sale these days. I bought the British one to try and won the other in a charity raffle. I teach turning for a living. It would be a lot easier if these suppliers sent a few freebies out so I could give a considered opinion to new turners! ;-)

    The burr/spalted Elm has a nice deep colour to it!

    "Pratchett". Whitebeam is usually, err, White.
