This is a new Saxa click pen from PSI, in chrome. It's my first. The wood is mango from Exotic Blanks, and is my first time turning it. It's denser than I expected, but has very interesting grain. The finish is Pens Plus.

The amazing and tiny click mechanism.
A couple of notes on this click mechanism.
When assembling, use a pen press to get the plastic part of the button to fully engage the barbs on the brass section.
The brass part threads into the mid part that threads into the back end barrel. If it isn't really tight, it can become loose over time. The same thing with the metallic part of the button that threads over the plastic section. I made one of these for my daughter and the button came loose and she lost it. What I have been doing since is using a tiny dab of Locktite 241 (the blue stuff) thread locker on both to prevent them from loosening.
