Take your pick on the terminology. I tend to like the term artisan pen.

Beautiful creation Don. Like the fact that you post some wonderful details(dimensions) as this is very helpful to determine what taps/dies that you use in construction. I do not make custom FP but if I did then this type of info would be great to know. Thanks for sharing.

Thats a beauty Don, and I like 'Artisian Pen' over the others also. Very nice. Was the Thuya difficult to finish? I have found mine the be very oily and a challenge. Thanks for sharing. 👍 👍

I am super envious of everyone that can make a pen such as this without the use of a kit. I think it is a beautiful pen and very artfully custom crafted.
With that being said and not to hijack a thread about a very talented pen maker and his glorious creation I am glad you didn't use that, too often misused word.
