Very pleased. My only change would be the option to have blue ink
I'm not going to write a review on each pen kit. They all look nice and fitment is excellent

I love the black chrome. It's a great look if you want a black twist kit without breaking the bank.

nice change of pace
i wasn't sure I would like this kit but decided to give it a try. Probably better with acrylic but still a nice change of pace even with some wood blanks.

Complementary pen
The Black Chrome pen and pencil make a fabulous set. Use matching light wood or light acrylic. The wood I used was Tapioca. Extremely rare. This helped to boost the price of the pens.

BEST ANSWER: The Pen Kit takes a Cross type refill, available at any office supply store.
Can the tube of the pen be covered with polymer clay instead of turning a blank?
Sheila N on Nov 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You could cover it in anything you would like as long as you can glue it to the tube to make sure that it doesn’t come off . You will probably still need to be able to turn it down or sand it to fit the hardware
Is a press needed to assemble this pen?
Sheila N on Nov 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A press is not necessary but you can use a Beesy parallel jaw clamp or a 1 ton arbor press to do the assembly. You can also use a good wood workers bench vise if has nice smooth hardwood jaws on it. The object is to guide the parts as straight as possible with your fingers.
