The Ultra is a classy upgrade to the standard Cigar pen. Completed pen is medium sized with excellent solid, though not heavy feel in the hand.Straight forward turning and assembly. Only caution is watch the orientation of the two small bushings. If not cautious you could easily reverse them. No preference between Gold and Chrome, both look outstanding.Double twist mechanism is smooth, and positive.

The Sierra pen is one of the sturdiest pens I've worked with, yet has a delicate feel that fits in your hand that others lack. The tapered barrel provides heft, while the large inside bore minimizes bulky weight. It's become mine, as well as my customer's favorite. I got to preview these before they were officially released years back, and haven't stopped making them since. It's quick, easy to assemble, sell and use.

This pen is very pretty. It has a nice weight and is not too large for women or too small for men. It is balanced nicely.

These are very classy pens -- looking like a higher end pen at a great price. I can't wait to make one of the two-tone pens. Very easy to assemble & great finish!

This is truly a regal pen. Detail is phenomenal and the quality outstanding. It's an instant hit with everyone that sees it and the first one people reach for.Matched with Amboyna Burl, it's a work of art.

I was a little hesitant when buying this pen. I am glad I did buy it. Chrome with black acrylic looks amazing. A few friends at work saw it and said "wow that's a weird pen. " when the wrote with it they were amazed at its comfort, as was I. 2 easy sales at work. I highly recommend trying this pen, especially if you are a little hesitant, like I was. Very easy to turn. Pay very close attention to the instructions. 2 of the tubes have a narrower end than the other, which I found out after assembly. :). The instructions are very clear, yet I pressed one on the pen wrong during assembly.

I've had a good deal of compliments on this pen. Mostly from other turners. Gives the cigar pen a classier look. Very impressive pen.

The end result of this kit is a beautiful pen with a nice weight. But there are a few precautions that need to be considered. 1) Make sure the brass tube(shorter of the two) that contains the transmission is clean of any glue. If not the pen will stick when twisting it open and it may not work at all. One way of cleaning any dried glue is using a wood rasp that is slightly smaller than the inside diameter of the brass tube.2) Apply a small dab of CA to all parts that are to be pressed into the lower body of the pen.3) Apply a small dab of CA to the top of the threaded end of clip because when the pen is completed and no glue is applied, the clip can slip and scratch the finish on the upper body of the pen

First time customer of this supplier. This particular style pen became an immediate gift after it was made. I have since ordered more.

First time turning a pen light.I chose it to make great gifts for the holidays. It was a good choice because as with the pen kits, this is also a quality kit that you will enjoy turning and assembling.

I love these. Girls absolutely love this pen more than any other kit that I've made. Great for gifts or to sell.

This little pocket stylus works great on my tablet, allowing me to keep my touch screen free of my dirty finger tips. Now I don't have to clean my screen nearly as often, and it is more accurate than my finger tip.I'd have one suggestion for an improvement/option. Allow both ends to have the rubber tips. This should be trivial to do, while allowing the clip to still be there. It would save a person from the costly mistake of absently minded picking up the stylus and using the wrong end (which I've almost done several times).

This is a high quality kit. Easy instruction and a finished product that will bring a big price

I really like the Virage Ballpoint pen so I ordered the Rollerball and WOW! This pen you can feel the quality, it is well balanced, feels good in your hand and is a joy to write with. I will definitely be purchasing more

wood is hard to find, finishes are excellent,easy to turn.
Adam Alloway (Rittman, OH) | October 19th, 2013
Great pen kit.Hint: Use center bits for best results to pre-drill a starter hole BEFORE you use regular drill bits.

This stylish pen is more versatile than it first appears.!It's medium size is appropriate for both Men and Women.While it is a fairly conservative design, It's accent band adds a touch of glamour without being Gaudy.This appeals to many of my customers.The quality of materials and workmanship is very good and consistent.There are no pitfalls in the assembly or machining process.This is one of my best sellers.
