Kauri1

Ancient Kauri from New Zealand is the oldest workable wood in the world. Tsunamis leveled the mighty Kauri thousands of years ago and they have been preserved underground in the top half of the North Island of New Zealand for more than 45,000 years. The further north they are found, research has shown the older the Kauri is.

    Very impressed

    I used this kit to make my first pen. The pen turned out so well that my wife wanted it (so now I need another pen kit). I was very impressed with the quality and finish of the kit parts and how nicely everything fit together when complete. I deducted a star because the instructions for setting up the mandrel were too vague. Overall I really liked this kit and will be getting more of these.

    Not bad

    Having been accustomed to the artisan cigar pens I was intrigued by these because of the additional plating options. I am overall happy but the finish quality left a bit to be desired. Compared to an artisan cigar these are a little rough around the edges. No one has complained about it but a discerning eye will spot the roughness quickly. I felt it was priced a bit high for such flaws to be considered acceptable. Ill probably still buy them when needed but I'd like to see an increase in quality given the cost

    favorite cigar pen

    I made this pen kit as a sample but know I will have to make one for myself. It opens to the left and right and is just a very elegant looking pen that enhances the blank I chose (mercury). My only complete was the assembly directions which could have been more clear about the bushing placement on the mandrel.

    Buy a nice refill along with this kit!

    Very nice quality. I should have bought a new refill ink cartridge along with the kit, I suggest you do. The ink cartridge that comes with the kit is not worth installing.

    Nice looking pen

    The bushings were an extremely tight fit in the brass tubes, the tubes needed to be sanded and/or reamed to allow the bushings into them. They were then difficult to remove. The twist mechanism works in both directions, with no firm "stop." Not a problem, just different. It was turned with redheart, which looked very nice. Given as a gift, recipient loved it.

    Excellent Kit!

    The hybrid cigar pen kit by Woodcraft is an excellent choice for pen makers of medium to advanced skill sets. There is no tricky tenon to make which makes this kit accessible to newer pen makers. The only drawback is there are no specific instructions for this pen! I used the instructions for the premium cigar pen as well as a picture of the completed hybrid cigar pen just to make sure I was creating the right instrument. I am pleased with the weight balance and this cigar pen may be a great alternative to those of us with smaller hands.
