This intricately decorated pen will make a cherished gift for anyone, especially for those who hail from a Celtic heritage. While Scotland, Ireland and Wales are perhaps the best known ''Celtic nations,'' the traditions and history extend throughout the British Isles and across the Atlantic into Europe and America. Millions of Americans identify proudly with their Celtic roots. An engraved Celtic knot motif decorates the exposed sections, while an emerald colored ''cabochon'' adorns the end. With its unbroken cord, the Celtic knot aptly symbolizes the winding, cyclical nature of life. The details in the engraving are accentuated by the authentic patina in the finish. Try it with a green blank to highlight the Celtic theme. All components are made from solid brass with a plated finish.

very impressive
First time a little intimidating since you have to mix the green powder and fill in the cutouts step by step. After the first time your ready to make more.

Great gift for the Celtic fan in your life
This pen is a great gift and well made kit. The fit and finish are excellent. The only words of note I would make is that this pen is a bit "hefty" in both size and finished weight, particularly when using acrylic blanks. That aside, I have made a number of these for ladies and they are all very happy with them.

Quality Pen Kit
This is a really nice, high quality pen kit. It's a bit fancier than I normally make (I'M not a high volume turner, so I've only made about a dozen of the Manhattan style), and thicker and slightly heavier as well. It's one-piece turning made the pen quick and easy to turn and assemble.

Tip won’t come out far enough to write
This is a beautiful pen when completed. Like one other reviewer, the tip of the refill comes out of the tip 1/16”, not far enough to write. I know I made the length of the tube/blank at exactly the right length. I think the issue is with the twist mechanism. But here I am with the most expensive pen I have made that is not useable.
Beautiful pen.
Tip of refill comes out of tip only 1/16”

Length problem
Nice looking pen, but made the pen and the pen tip would not come out pass the tip of the body. The tube length is 3', but the instructions indicate that the tube should be 2.96"!! more that enough length to cause this problem. Rockler's customer support told me to take the pen back to the store. After I had already made it!
Went back to the store, got another kit andt measured the brass tube length -still 3"So I will have to trim the brass tube before assembly Normally the brass tubes are already cut to the proper length and everything works. So be careful if you buy this kit to check the brass tube length. Also the spring and the pen adjuster are not bagged and are easily misplaced when taking the parts out of the main bag..

doesn't work
Admittedly I've only made 30-40 pens, and only with four different kit types. These two Celtic pens were my first with this kit, and the were to be a gift. These directions don't work, and neither do the pens. I wasted my time and money on them.
