This story begins with a day trip to Chicago in March of 2016.
A few friends and I were looking at some pens in a store when I proudly exclaimed 'I can make a better pen!"
Little did I know that those few words said in haste would set me on an adventure to make a better pen. 2 months later, much to my own surprise I made my first pen, a twist ballpoint made out of tropical cocobolo. It was quite obvious that it was not a better pen. In fact, it was a terrible disaster that barely resembled a pen. Refusing to give up I made a second pen, still a disaster but it started to resemble a pen.
Have I made a better pen?
I do know the answer but I'll let you decide.
One thing I will tell you for sure is that every pen I make is just a little better than the last.
Knowing this, I can always make a better pen.
