The elegant look and smooth mechanism on these Executive pen kits will make them one of your most popular pens. Plus, the single tube and straight-cut styling make these pen kits quick and easy to turn. These kits are plated with rhodium, an exquisite and valuable precious metal from the Rhodium chemical group. Rhodium's brilliance, hardness, and beauty make it a favorite of fine pen makers and collectors. Rhodium is extremely durable; it resists tarnish and is very resistant to scratching, and acids. Includes an attractive I.D. card which identifies and explains the rhodium plating. It also includes a space for you to sign the project and give information about the turned wood you used.
