Our hosts have a lively discussion on the topic of chimeras - pens built out of parts that didn’t originally go together. Are chimeras an abomination? Or is a little “frankensteining” sometimes a necessity? What about when it’s done for fun or self-expression? And if we could each build our own dream pen, what would it be?
