With a bit of panache

This was my first pen using a panache pen kit. I have been wanting to make one for some time and I finally found a reseller of the kits.

It’s made from oak with a CA glue finish and I just love the feel of this pen.
It has a bit more weight to it, but it’s very comfortable to hold.

Since it has large flat ends it can stand upright on either end.
In fact since there is no clip it’s easiest to stand it on end or it might roll away.

I’ll probably make some simple holder for it, so that doesn’t happen.
I’m still experimenting with my product photography, trying to get the correct lighting and background.
