      Bulky pen

      I bought three of these pen kits when I was at the woodcraft store, they were on sale for 10 bucks each. Decent value at that, I used camouflage acrylic blanks. The pen goes together just fine. Kind of bulky and oversized for everyday writing implement

      Great Kit

      This is the first survival pen I've made and had absolutely no problems with it at all. Everything went together just perfectly.

      Love concept terrible kit

      Worst pen kit that I have assembled. I live the concept. However, I had to jury rig a lot of the assemblies and glue a lot of the joints. This is the first kit I’ve I had so many problems with. I’m glad I bought them on sale. They are not worth $20.

      Difficult kit

      I found this kit difficult to complete. The bushing sizes are so similar that it is difficult to tell them apart. Even then, I had trouble getting the cap bushings to fit into the cap tubes. I had to polish the coating off of the bushings and then carefully ream the tubes to get them to fit. I also agree with the previous reviews about the added expense of rather obscure drill sizes needed, especially for the cap tubes. This also makes it difficult to get replacement tubes if there is an issue. All in all, I do not feel I got enough value for the price, factoring in all of the components.

      Unique but costly

      Firstly, this is a unique kit and potential to be a big seller because of the niche. However, you'll have to sell a lot of them to make them cost efficient for production. It's a $20 kit to begin with, and then you have to get the bushing set, 2 fairly obscure drill bit sizes, and 2 fairly obscure reamer or sanding sleeve sizes. It's a $65 kit just to make 1 and that's before your blanks! It would be a lot better and a lower price point and with more traditional tube sizes. Also, the center bushings are 2 pieces and hard to tell the difference in size.

      Great kit

      Enjoyed making this pen. It went together really well and looks great with the heavily spalted oak I used to make it. The instructions are straight forward, but I would prefer if the center bushings (between cap and body) were a single bushing instead of two seperate bushings. The exterior dimensions of the top and bottom cap bushings are only a fraction of an inch different and I had to use my micrometer to confidently tell them apart. I also feel this is more of a $15 kit versus a $20 kit. A better price would make this a five star kit.
