I made this one out of Manzanita Burl cast in green resin, which barely comes through in the the 'eyes' of the the burl wood. I really like the shape of this pen. I wasn't sure about the double twist mechanism after reading about the possibility of marking up pockets (turning too far to retract and then it advances a little). After assembling, I noticed that unless the refill was fully engaged, the refill would slowly retract on its own. Not sure if this is a new adjustment they made but it works very well and I'm confident that it won't cause an issue.

Very nice job!

Cigar pens are a bit bulky for me, so I never use them as a carry pen, but I do like them for display purposes since they tend to stand out more than other ballpoint styles. I have a couple of display stands on my credenza at work with just cigar pens & they do draw the attention of anyone who comes into my office.

That is a great looking pen. Love the blank and kit combo! That Manzanita Burl is insane! I love the depth and color.
