Having this pen available in the shop really saved me the trouble of finding one and ordering it PLUS supporting small businesses is really important to me. I just got into needle felting and was able to order all of my supplies all at once and received it on my doorstep within a couple days. The pen is light weight and very sharp. Like I said, I am new to the hobby and value the products Benzie supports. Without question, I ordered this one without researching others because I know Benzie wouldn’t steer me wrong.
