The Big Dipper (Alaskan Flag) Inlay Kit - Sierra Pen Kits 

This cluster of stars has been recognized as an important and distinct group in many cultures from time immemorial. These stars often signify hope for a brighter future. The most visible part of the constellation of Ursa Major (the Bear), we know these stars as the Big Dipper. So named because slaves would be told to follow the drinking gourd (dipper) in their quest for freedom. 

But these stars also go by many other names in other cultures. In Europe, they are known as the Plough (Ireland), the Clever (England), and the Saucepan (Dutch), while the rest of Europe often sees The Great Wagon or Seven Oxen encircling the pole star. In the Hindu religion, these stars are revered as "the Seven Stages," while the Bible just calls them "the seven stars." These stars even shine in famous literature and song. Homer's Iliad mentions them as the Bear, Tolkien the Sickle of the Valar, and T. A. Barron - The Wizard's Staff.  But in each one of these, a recurring theme - a message of prosperity and of hope and for a brighter future. 

 The kit pieces are basswood, dyed blue and yellow. The kit is comprised of 9 pieces and comes ready to assemble.  It even includes a complete instruction sheet! The inlay kit fits the Sierra, Sierra Vista, Manhattan, Sienna, Diplomat, Wallstreet II, Gatsby, Mesa, and Apprentice Classica pen kits (Pen kits sold separately). 

This kit will not work with the shorter-bodied Sierra pencil kits or the Sierra Elegant Beauty Button Click pen. On a degree of difficulty scale of 1-5, these would all fall into the two range. Tweezers and magnifying glasses are recommended!

Made to fit the Sierra Twist Style of Pen Kits.

    Finally got to put one of these together and it "turned" out very nice. This was my first experience with an inlay type of pen kit.
    I intended on epoxying the tube in as usual. Ended up using thin CA glue instead and using extremely great care while turning. Thin CA can get away from you quick! I assembled it into a Gatsby kit, gold & black, resulting in a pretty slick look.
