Yes, it’s another pen :)
This is Wenge on a Tycoon rhodium plated rollerball kit from PSI. I had made one of these out of ebony, but when I assembled it, the ebony started to blow out and crack in multiple places. I was able to ca/sand/ca/sand a few times to fix it cosmetically but didn’t want to sell one like that (so I got to keep it, yay!).
I ordered this kit with the intention of trying it again with ebony, but I decided to see how it would look with a piece of Wenge I had. I think I’m pretty happy with the results.
One thing I’ve noticed with this kit is the couplers at either end of the pen body have a plastic outer thread. You need to press them in place with the tip screwed in, otherwise the plastic threads will collapse in on themselves.
Thanks for looking.
