    Very cleverly done and I can appreciate the workmanship. I do however have a ‘but’.
    I fear that such a pen just looks too commercially made. There are loads of factories in China that can churn out cheap versions that look so similar. It is so difficult to differentiate the real thing from the imposter and the trouble with these very ornate kits is that to my eye at least they make that distinction even more blurred. It is a bit like buying a Harry Potter wand from the Hollywood spin off shops for some inflated price and then comparing that to one which has been made with love and care by someone for their grandchild. If the latter looks distinctive all is well but if too ornate then it looks like a copy of the spin off and that is not the same thing at all. Sorry just my opinion and as I say I really appreciate the workmanship.

    A really nice pen Johnny, I would like to see it on a plain pen so the blank could be the star as the kit embellishments detract the eye from what should be the min feature. A very nicely crafted pen nonetheless.
