and lest i forget (which i did but i can fix via the magic of 'edit')... the pen.
edit again: OH YEAH! and i put it next to the Lamy b/c a safari is about as recognizable as
a dollar bill. but since this forum is more international, i figured i'd use something more
people would recognize and could compare it to.

edit again again!: score! 43/60 or 71%... but maybe it's writing better the more i use it... i'll get back to ya later.

hey, glad everybody liked the sketches! thanks!

update on the pen. the clip doesn't hold on. maybe to a coat pocket, but my shirt pocket is too thin apparently. bent over to pick something up and it fell out, landing on the blind cap and cracking. but only the cap broke. so hopefully a little 2 part clear epoxy will tighten things up a bit.
