To its credit, the finish of the kit was like that of the picture, so no problems cosmetically. However, the kit had two major structural problems: first and most importantly, the nib fell apart. The black decorative piece, the small silver ring on top of it, and the next segment all completely detached from the lowest part of the nib with only minimal force being applied. I glued these back together but had to be very careful not to tarnish the finish in doing so. This is reminiscent of a problem I've had with two Sierra Nomad Carbon Fiber kits, where the carbon fiber part of the nib detaches from the tube and spins freely. I will now avoid Sierras in the future for this reason. The rate of failure I've had with them is just too high. Second, the kit had a problem where the ink refill was too long for the pen and stuck out from the bottom of the nib even in the closed position. I'm not sure if it's variance in the manufacturing of the ink refills or with the components of the kit, but I had to trim the head end of the refill with a utility knife and inform the recipient that the same may need to be done with future refills. This is another problem I've had with kits in the past. Finally, this may be a matter of taste, but I didn't like the feel of the click mechanism. It felt unresponsive and hollow to me. It made a nice looking pen when I got everything worked out, but it wasn't the quality I expected for this price. Hopefully my recipient doesn't share the feeling, but after having to fix the issues, the pen felt cheap to me.

in your description of the king wood pen blank it says you stock bowl blanks. When I searched for them it said no products found.
Note From Store Owner: Gary, thank you for your feedback. We can sympathise with you on the bowl blanks. We did carry them in the past. Unfortunately however, it is becoming quite difficult to get our hands on them due to import restrictions.

Crafter Program

This program is a mix and match quantities for the best quantity price program. This applies to only kits and not to introductory kits or other products. Example: if you order 10 each of 6 kits you would pay the 60 quantity price for each kit rather then the 10 quantity price. A crafter regularly buys 50 to 150 kits at a time. The minimum purchase quantity per order is 50 kits. The maximum discount is the 100 price.
