There was a scratch in the upper body after I turned it, that I had trouble with. I didn't notice it until I had polished it the first time. I tried wet sanding it three times, but just couldn't get rid of the scratch. Finally, I very carefully took it out with a carbide chisel. That fixed it! I'm very glad, it shore is purty!
Greetings - Nice looking pen. I've made a lot of Cigars, but never the Ultra version. I love how the swirls in the blank match up with the swirls on the clip. I guess I'm going to have to try some Ultra Cigar kits. - Dave
The nib piece, center band, clip and finial are all quite ornamented wheras the regular cigar has pieces with smooth surfaces.
The clip of the ultra has a different shape (pointed) from the regular.
If you look on a vendor's website, such as exoticblanks.com, the pictures show the impressive differences.
