Cool Heavy and/or balanced pen kits

I am looking for pen kits that are on the heavy side. Making a pen for my boss and he used to play ncaa college ball as a defensive lineman so he is a very large man. What would you guys recommend?

Jr retro in black titanium I feel is a larger heavier pen. I like the way it feels weight wise with cap on.

A Full Majestic or Emperor would be my choice. I am a big guy with large hands and I love working with a Majestic.

The Churchill is another good choice. Not as much metal so it's a bit lighter, BUT it has a large diameter. Looks good when blanks coordinate with the black plastic ends of the components. Certainly not as big as the full Majestic or Emperor though.

Cambridge is also a good heavy pen - especially if you go with the silver/gold hybrid

The full size Gentlemen in rhodium from CSUSA. A classic looking pen with good weight without all the bling. You also may want to consider the Statesman from CSUSA.

I like Atrax for a heavy pen. Bold design, but clean, simple lines, lets the blank be the show. By default, they are non-postable, but you can add a postable end piece for a couple bucks. Fountain or Rollerball. Good luck.
Thx, rink.

Heavy compared to what? Imo all the kits are heavy when put on a scale next to pens that people buy at the store. The Pilot Precise V5 and Uni-Ball Vision elite sitting on my desk weigh .33 and .4 oz respectively. A stock slimline with acrylic barrels is .75 oz. I just finished a a neopean sans the kit finial and coupling that came in at just under an ounce. I've given away all the kit pens I've made but it wouldn't surprise me if some of them weigh close to 2oz...Too heavy to be a shirt or pants pocket pen imo but everybody is different.

The American Patriots are heavy and quite cool.
Wild Card from with thick blanks is as manly and heavy as it gets.
The Steampunk..... if it fits his taste it is a unique pen to own.

all are from PSI
