Yes , they are Tru Stone , Trustone seems like a brand name , so i didn't use Trustone to describe them , but they made from same materials .

I ordered a set of these, as well as one of their carbide tools. Ordered on Friday, and it’s all supposed to arrive tomorrow. So far, so good. I hope I can still say that when I open the box tomorrow.

I'd like to get like 2 of each of about 4 of the patterns, however the shipping cost on the site is extremely illogical. I added 2 blanks and the shipping was $7...ok. I then add 2 more and shipping goes to $9...ok. I add 2 more and shipping jumps all the way to $24...Whoa there.....Added 2 more and it goes up to $27 or so...ok...added 2 more and it goes down to $20....now I'm confused. As I continue to add, it then goes back up to $30+ for shipping. 11 blanks seems to be the prime spot for $20 shipping and it goes up from there.

I do understand this is coming from China, and I do expect the shipping to be more than local shipping, but it fluctuates too much.

Also, in your first post you say "with shipping". Does that mean shipping is free if you buy 50 blanks or does it mean $199 + shipping?

This 50 blank lot was $199, shipping included. Iím sure thatís for this particular assortment only, not your choice.

Ken,

If you join in with me, Terry, and rsieracki, we can potentially split this cost 4 ways. I might be able to take 20 if you all can take 10...

Hi Ken , sorry for making you confused . i will explain you as below .
1. Strongink have 3 shipping methods . one is Economic type ,Starting shipping cost US$7 ,cheap shipping with longer delivery but only limited within 2kgs ,suiable for small orders . one is Standard type, starting cost is US$19-23, delivery around 4 working days . the third type is Super type , this type is suitable for bulk order starting cost is US$160 , which including shipping and all duty you may charge to your local customs .

2. I think you only saw the shipping cost on the bucket(shopping cart), which only shows you the reference cheapest shipping cost according to your country and the items you added ,some times because of item adding speed, internet or server refresh problem it shows incorrect result, that's why your shipping jumped to 24usd directly, but it is not the final cost, you should go to next step to choose your country , your shipping method and use the credits you got from Strongink, I believe you will got a very good final price .

3. Thank you Ken for your attention to Strongink items , and sorry for making you confused . From today on we will remove shipping cost reference shown on the shopping cart temporarily until it can work perfectly.

Hi Yussef , when you drill the blanks please do not ignore it's stone features , when drilling hole ,it may crack if you press too hard . and sanding it with wet sandpaper is good way . if you are a experienced pen maker or you have turned stone blanks before ,please ignore above tips .
