Piece together this five-part, laser-cut pen barrel and turn it to size for stunning results. The kit includes a natural curly maple barrel and cocobolo notes that get inlaid into position to become a seamless part of the finished pen. Designed for Manhattan Chrome, Manhattan Gold, and Elegant Manhattan style pen kits only, sold separately. Assembly requires cyanoacrylate (CA) glue. For best results, use sharp tools. For easy-to-follow directions (including color photos) on applying the CA finish to your pen kit, see the article "My Simple CA Finish" by Colin Nelson.

Very easy to make a pen using this.
I wanted to try doing an inlay pen. I picked this one as a simple one to try. It is easy and makes a very attractive pen.

Made for a beautiful pen
I decided to use sandpaper rather than turning tools to bring the blank down to bushing size. No tear-outs with the inlays using this technique.

musical note laser
Worked up real nice. The long thin pieces were very good.
Those were especially difficult to cut I imagine.
Overall, it "turned out" quite nice.

Not for beginners.
Not a bad blank, but there were some issues with the fit of the notes. My first attempt didn't survive and I am going to have to try again.

Too loose
The gaps between the blank and the inlays were too loose causing them to rip out during turning. Threw it out.

Can this inlay blank work on a double seam ripper?
Donna R on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: the barrel is a 10mm I believe that a smaller barrel could be inserted if needed
Is it possible to use this inlay in a pencil kit?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It would have to be a pencil kit that has the same specifications as a Manhattan or Sierra pen kit. If you find one like that then it would work.
