This is my first kitless pen. It’s made from Purpleheart, a bic refill and a clip from a cigar pen. Critiques welcome.

I think it is great!! ...and economical. Only thing I might change would be to use a a black Bic, but that is my own taste

Great idea. Refills available everywhere! And, to my mind, the point of having a wooden pen is to display the wood, not the gold, silver, brass etc. hardware. Excellent! Now, I am considering how the clip might also be done in wood.

Nice shape… looks comfortable to use.
