A Fine Pen Kit
I like the beefy feel of the Cuban pen. Not hard to turn or assemble and directions are given on lining up the grain across the 2 parts. The photo shows 2 in copper and 1 in black titanium. Woods are 1 in cherry and 2 in Brazilian rosewood. I like the look a lot.

Beautiful kit!
This Copper pen kit is quite lovely. Made one using Spalted Service Berry. Showed it off at a local craft fair and got many positive comments. Will be buying more.

Things I like about the kit; Copper color looks great and the action is smooth. Love how thick and heavy this pen kit is! It's really comfortable in hand.

Things I didn't like: Pocket clip could be tighter. So I wrapped the pen in soft leather and used a pair of needle nose pliers to squeeze the clip making it a tighter fit. Wish you didn't have to adjust the clip. But for the money, I don't mind doing it. Especially considering that everything else is so nice!

An FYI: Some of the components are very tight fitting, so make sure you get things lined up perfectly and press them together slowly.
