It seemed appropriate to use a cigar style pen kit in the next cigar pen.
Problem was, how do you hide the nib end. Well, this worked out.
There are 4 rare earth magnets that hold the ash on the nib end to cover the tip.
It uses a double twist cigar kit in gun metal. There are some issues with the fit because of some bushings that do not fit tight enough. It takes a lot of extra time getting the pieces to fit and the magnets set.
I’m going to try to think up a better way to hold the ashes on the end but the basics of the design work.
The diameter is just over 3/4”, about a #50 in cigar measurements.
These sure are fun to make!
