Default Looking for a well built cigar pen kit

Most of my pen kits come from Penn State. I'm pleased with the quality of most of them, particularly the Majestic Squire which I love.

However, the Cigar Pen kits I purchase from Penn State seem to either feel loose after I assemble them, or squeak a bit, or just don't feel solid.

Can anyone recommend other companies that make Cigar Pen kits that they have used, and have a quality feel to them.

Thanks,
Len

I find that the ones made by Dayacom are the best quality. Just not sure who carries them.

I actually found the Cigar pens I purchased from PSI a year or so ago was better quality than those from cheaper sources. The big differenc I noticed was the the cheaper kit had thicker metal for the clip, but it was rough and ragged along the edges where the PSI units were thinner metal but smooth and very well polished. Also, the cheaper kit's nib wrinkled a little bit when I pressed the units together whereas the PSI units were solid.

I get mine from woodnhimsies, bought several and no problems, and they have double twist transmissions.

I use Berea cigar kits, they are well made. You can get them from Berea Hardwoods, Exotic Blanks, Beartooth Woods, Arizona Silhouette and Woodcraft.

Take a look at the BereaCigar Hybridô 17D Pen, also called Cubano Black Titanium & Gold Titanium Cigar Ballpoint Pen Kit. That is a solid pen.

Thank you everyone! I will check out Berea Hardwoods. Seems like their pens are getting good reviews.
