Very nice pen and Fountain pens.
I have built 8 of this kits and all of them are beautiful, a pair in Padouke?, a set in Redheart, another in Wenge and another in Bubinga. I just started turning wood but I can tell that this larger kits show the beauty of exotic woods.
The suggested drill bit sizes are wrong as usual. Do not use a 31/64. Use a 15/32 for the longer tube. Be prepared to use a pen press to push in the 33/64 for the cap end because its too tight. By now they should have taken care of this but, no, they didn't. Even after all that, it does not look all that impressive. Step up to the Cambridge but be prepared to fight with the tubes not fitting into the blank. Better yet, avoid them all together.
Love this pen.
Bought this pen kit online without seeing it in person. This is a really big pen. Very masculine. On the other hand, it is quite impressive visually. If you're making a gift for a lady this is not the one. One the other hand, it's perfect for the manager who has to make a statement with everything. Writes great too.
This was my first fountain pen and was one of the easiest pens, if you follow directions, I have ever done. I will certainly turn more of these.
A good pen to learn with

This is a fun pen
I purchased this pen to make my first fountain pen. I chose the "purple haze" acrylic blank to go with it. My wife instantly took the pen. I believe this will be a good seller!
