Pens

These are some pens that I did over the weekend. 2 are puzzle pens in the Jr Statesmen pen kits and a platinum cigar pen in ebony. Both with a CA finish Micro Meshed to 12000, buffed and then ren waxed.

I already have a buyer for 1 puzzle pen. The puzzle pens took about 4 hours each to complete and the kits are not cheap. I had to redo the ebony finish 3 times before it looked good.

Well this particular one I have "on sale" for $205 because it is on a higher end kit. You can get them for other kits, like the cigar pen which is priced around $150.

I have seen a few people selling them in the $300 range.

Those are truly spectacular. I'll certainly keep them in mind for when i secure a finance job (hopefully soon).

If you dont mind me asking, what material are the pen kits made from? Appears to be sterling from here.

These particular kits are Rhodium and 22kt Gold. They have this kit without the gold and in fountain pen form too.

Some pretty nice stuff there. I especially like the puzzle pens. Neat concept. I don't think that I have ever seen something like that and you did a fantastic job in making them. Thanks for posting.

I enjoyed your web site. Your prices are what I ask for my pens. I have stopped making as many pens and have switched to other items. I make Duck and Goose calls, Predator calls, Bottle stoppers, Kaleidoscope eggs, and letter openers. I also make gun racks and fishing rod racks. I sell my items at gun shows about 95% of the time. I will post some of my latest calls as soon as the tung oil dries. I coat the inside of the calls with tung oil to make them water proof.

Do you include a display case with each of your pens?
