Default I'm Still Alive - Cigar Illusions

It's been an embarrassingly long time since I have posted. Life can really be interesting at times. I did finally get the name Cigar Illusion® trademarked. That was a relatively easy process.
These two pens are made from a board of Chechem (also called Chechen)
Components are titanium gold. My Cigar Illusion pen components are interchangeable. One pen can be either a rollerball or fountain pen.
Enjoy. Feedback always welcome.

That's really nice, I like the presentation box and card. Don't forget to put the registered symbol on the card.

Thanks. It's always nice to do something that is familiar to get back into the swing. I've enjoyed looking at posts. Looks like the pen making community is moving right along. I've done some kitless custom work, but nothing that I'm willing to post yet. I thought empty nest would give me all this free time - not working out that way as of yet. LOL
Thank again
