This may not be tapered enough at the ends to properly qualify, but given the blank and tube sizes, it is as close as I can get. The wood is curly koa.

Now that’s a pen I can appreciate. The Koa was a great choice.

Lew, I use 3 or 4 coats of CA glue over the band. But it is stuck there with contact adhesive first to get it positioned.I too like the koa, too bad it is not cheap!

As an AVID cigar man myself, that is one of the coolest pens I have ever seen. If you’re interested in selling one of these, please email me (address on my website).

Very nice. How do the two parts attach together? Are they threaded? Magnets?
#10 posted 04-29-2012 07:24 PM
The 2 halves screw together. I made one with the snap cap but I’m not a fan of those.The magnet method will be for later projects. I’m having too much fun with these.
Scott, I have 3 other variations up on Etsy. There seems to be some interest but I’m not going to give these up for a song. There is at least 2 hours work in every one of them.

love it…I would say the ends look great. Heck, if I saw it laying around, I would grab for my lighter and then start making my way towards it.
