This is my everyday carry and I have used it daily at work for probably close to two years. Even though the wood is beautiful, I decided to change it up. I disassembled it and turned a new barrel. The brass gears and brass pen components match perfectly. I'm pretty happy with this one. The wood is walnut burl that I stabilized. The resin is liquid diamonds. Since the wood is stabilized, I just polished it out with micro mesh. No CA, we'll see how it wears.
