Both Roy and Ed have it available, it's not expensive ... Classic Nib: Craft Coat 2oz or Exotic Blanks: Craft Coat 2oz

CC has Ben used by quite a few people now. The finish is holding up quite nicely on pens I have sold. I had a pen a little over a year old brought back for a refill. The finish still looked like new with a high gloss on it.

I need to keep experimenting though. I want more shine than I got on the first try.
Dan, I'd love your updated review.

Pens plus vs craft coat

Wow - haven't seen this in awhile. I found craft coat to be similar to wood turners finish but I think a bit better.

It's a whole different type of finish from
Pens plus though.

I like having a couple finishing methods ready to use. For me it's ca and pens plus when it comes to pens.

But I do believe craft coat to be a high quality product and I'd recommend it, Even though I don't really use it.

My goto finish now is to do a soaking coat of thin CA, then sanding down with a 500 grit Abralon pad and then 5 to 6 coats of Craft Coat (with 1 minute between coats). The CA gives a nice hard base as well as really making the grain and color "pop." The Craft Coat then gives a very durable, hard, water resistant high gloss finish without the "plastic" look of CA.

Here are some recent utensils, mills and a Desire fountain pen using this method.
