Also, the PSI Executive is a really nice pen for around $10.
Please don't take offense, but a point of information!!

The Wall Street II is indeed identical to the Sierra, both made by Berea. The Gatsby, Sienna and Sahara are NOT Berea kits. Yes, they are VERY similar but there are design differences that distinguish one from another, which CAN make a difference in which pen you might prefer.

One more point. The Wall Street II is identical to the Sierra on the outside but has a different transmission mounting system. You won't be able to swap out the insides between the two.

I can't think of a more subject question. So, in my opinion, the best deal (and one that I can sell for the most profit and whose components I like best) for that price range are the Jr Harold's and the Citizen. Again, this is as subjective as appreciate art.

I'm a fan of the Wall Street II from Woodcraft. It is the simplest and fastest pen I've turned. It is available in several platings and sells very well. My 2nd choice is the Executive, it is a one tube kit and I think makes a super looking pen. Admittingly, the walls are thin, but this has never caused a problem with me. The tubes can be painted if needed. The Executive can be bought for a shade over 4 bucks in lots of 10. Try turning one of these in chrome with African Blackwood and I think you will agree it makes a great classic looking pen.
