This is my 2nd one of these. This one made from the block of material I showed in another thread. I'm rating it just an okay, nothing really spectacular. Not a lot of difference from any other spectraply blank, of which I'm not much of a fan. The pen utilizes the smaller brass click mechanism, still not a fan of it, maybe it's just this pen kit, but I've had to fiddle with both of them before they actually work well. I think it's because the plunger has to actually be pressed into the pen to engage, a touch past flush. I have had to put a small drop of light oil into the mechanism. Critiques, comments always welcome.
