The tubes that are epoxied inside of the barrel material (wood, acrylic, etc.) are brass. The rest of the body (tip, crown, clip, etc.) are machined from brass and plated with the various finishes. The only exception to this would be those that are cast in pewter, like the Southwest pen.
I have used all of the different pens that are showcased here and stand by them all. The only problems I have experienced have been due to dropping a pen and it landed badly. Even then, it only resulted in minor damage and was easy to repair. I also have a "junk yard" of parts because if I am not satisfied with a part, I won't use it. This has been due to things like a small blemish in the finish, a clip that isn't perfectly straight, etc. I have also made a few pen styles that I liked but was not completely satisfied with the overall quality. None of those are shown here. If anyone experiences a problem with one of my pens due to the workmanship or parts failure, I will resolve it.
I will do whatever I can to help make it whole again, which may include shipping the pen to me. There would be no labor cost for my work, just for any necessary parts required for repairs. This will be on a case-by-case basis.
Yes, since there would be a savings on my part for the shipping. I will pass this savings on to you. Depending on the number and types of pens you want, I may also deduct more. Just let me know what you want.
The questionnaire that you receive at the completion of this successful campaign will list all of the available finishes for that pen. Not all pens are available in all finishes. You will also select the material (wood, acrylic, carbon fiber, deer antler, etc.) from a list of options. See the photos of the samples above.
