This is an African Blackwood pen that I was asked to make. The customer had multiple very specific requirements that I was fortunately able to meet through this longwood kit from PSI.
The kit itself was a bit tricky, the back end of the wood only has a tube in the rear half of it. There’s an additional brass tube that accepts the twist mechanism which attaches to the coupler, but if you measure to the length the instructions say, you wind up with a gap between the end of the long piece of wood and the band. I wound up trimming the brass tube a hair with a pipe cutter and it was a perfect fit :)
All in all a great kit if you have a piece of wood that you really want to highlight the grain or just for something a little different.
Thanks for looking.
