I turned my first CSUSA cigarillo pen today. The wood is African Ironwood. Overall I like the size of the pen. I believe it will appeal to ladies who find the regular cigar pen too large. I could see a his and her cigar set made easily. The mechanism seems to work well. I do have a little question on the gun metal finish. When I was pushing in the nib there was a spray like coating that was scraping up into the joint. I was cleaning it out before the joint came together and managed to nick the nib with out much effort. It seems almost to be sprayed on. Consequently, this pen will most likely end up in my shop pen assortment.
