These components can be used with any close-grained hardwood (or similar material such as Corian) to make a stick pen. You cut a square blank to length, drill it and insert the brass tubular component, then turn the square to size on a mandrel using soft-iron bushings as size guides. Exterior components have a 24-karat gold finish.
Takes standard Cross-style refills (with the plastic end cap removed), which can be obtained at stationery stores or from us (original pen and refills have blue ink).
Requires our threaded mandrel, a 1/4" drill, and a 1/2" square by 6" long blank.
