Default Just another cigar pen

This is my entry for the penmakers challenge that Dennis (Soligen) is running in the advanced penmakers forum . If you haven't checked it out , you should . Make a pen and join in the fun .
It is a kitless cigar pen . It's made with some Mesquite and a cigar tube and transmission . I got the cigar band from Peter (aggromere) . I really like the way this one came out . I used my new CA finish (no , I'm not telling , it's a secret ) , the pictures don't really show it but it really shines .

As always , comments are welcome .

Nice incorporation of the nib and twist seam! Looks really good. Don't try to light it up!

Love your pen pen butch.Just an idea but i think it would really pop if you had a black band of Ebony at the top of the label with your ca finish.Just my 2 cents but anyway you did a wonderful job on the challenge.

That is stunning! I will now spend the next 6 months trying (failing) to get even close.

That's the beauty of it!


It isn't really a competition. More of a personal challenge issued to the masses. Anyone can enter, and it is no real loss if you don't succeed. In fact, even if you try and fail, you still gain experience! And as my dad always said... "Experience comes disguised as hard work".

All good stuff, Butch. The finish looks cool. Mesquite is sorta like a cat. It has a mind of it's own about whether or not to accept CA! The precision at the twist and label makes this pen.

Personally, I like pens with clips because I tend to roll the off the desk. A CLIP WOULD RUIN the look of this pen. Perhaps adding a matching cigar box pen case would keep it on my desk. Please make the pen box before you send this pen to me:)
