I cannot see any join in that piece, although I can in the smaller V-ed pieces.
I just used the table saw, careful to adjust the depth to only go 1/2 way through. I did use a much wider piece and cut off the v-block when done.

I have commented previously, but wanted to add: You did not want to sacrifice a good kit for an experiment... But most observers (IMO) would say you sacrificed an expensive blank for a common kit (but, there is nothing wrong with the cigar kit!). Your blank and finished pen is wonderful!

Congrats on the front page - well deserved. This kind of segmenting is feasible, very rewarding, but daunting; you executed very well.
