Some more thank you Emails
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for the pens you sent to myself and my three soldiers.
These pens are beautiful pieces that will all be used with pride.
Thank you in particular for the pen from the Kalgoolie Region.
I just wanted to send a big thank you for the amazing pens you sent out to my small little group. The guys liked their surprise and I see them using their pens during our meetings.
Sorry I was too excited to hand them out before taking a photo of them all together.
Just a quick note to thank you and the volunteers at Pens for the Troops for the 20 pens you sent.
They arrived about two weeks ago and were distributed here
The recipients are officers and soldiers from all three Services currently deployed on Operation OKRA as 'embedded' personnel in the Headquarters Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR).
The Remembrance Day gifts were very well received and greatly appreciated by all. Please pass on our thanks.
If you'd like to send more pens next year I've included the e-mail address
Thanks again for the pens and keep up the great work, cheers,
My name is Matt and Iím currently serving in Afghanistan with the Australian Defence Force.
Today I was given one of your handcrafted pens; the ďEmuĒ, I saw your note about the pen and realised how much personal time and effort had gone into making it.
I wanted to send you a quick email of thanks for offering up your time and effort to make such a detailed piece of handcrafted woodwork.
When I get home next year Iíll have some time off work, in that time Iíll be enrolling in a cabinet making short course as itís a skill that Iíve always wanted to have but never got around to learning. The last time I worked with wood was probably in high school (15 years ago).
Once again, thanks so much for giving up your time to make these pens, I know that most of the Aussies here were pretty excited to receive their own today.
Have a great day.

I am now a very proud owner of one of your pens ("bloody hell") and really enjoying writing with it and showing it off.
It is a very luxurious and elegant pen. I am using it every day for all my note taking and correspondence.
I love the Zebrano wood, it is very unusual and you have shaped it beautifully. I quickly looked it up on line and found the website below - that you are no doubt familiar with.

Two more emails of thanks
Thank you very much for your generous gift. The pen I received is very nice.
I received a handmade pen a little while ago. I was very happy to receive this beautifully crafted pen.
The time and effort that went into making this pen is amazing and I will cherish it, I would love to look at others for my father as he also likes pens.
Thank you for thinking of us.
