I decided to check out this pen making that seems to popular and fun. So I go to my not so local, (not sure I can say the name) pen/blank/kits/rock store. Spend $325.00 on all the cool pen blanks and polishing stuff and 7mm pen kits.
I make 3 nice pens to show off at the family Easter gathering thinking I would get some feedback as to who I should consider making one as a gift. Well of course I put them in my shirt pocket ($75.00 shirt) Sorry I did not have a pocket protector. Of coarse 1 leaks leaving a nice black ink blob on my shirt (now a shop rag). I did not get the response I was hoping for because who wants a pen that leaks? They look nice but they LEAK.
Unbelievable, that I went to this store thinking they only sell the best product on the market.
I contacted the manager at the store and told him of my shall we say my (unfortunate experience). He is going to refund me for the kits I bought and see what he can do to make my unfortunate experience better.
I am hoping that he will make me an offer equal to the $75 shirt.
Has this leaking ink thing happened to anyone else? The manager told me he has had similar problems with the 8mm pen kits.
I will update the offer made by manager when I recieve it.
