    What is the purpose of a "pad" underneath the tip ? I have seen it on both ivory ferrules...and on non ivory ferrules. I'm thinking its for a "cushioning" effect, but am also wondering about the wood to pad, pad to tip bond. Seems like a middle man that doesnt need to be there if tip to shaft...
