Help us pick a name!-piog-update in replies

My son, who's 15, makes and sell hand turned pens. He was just making them in open shop at school and could only do one a week. For Christmas he got everything he needs to make them at home and he already has several orders. He also had the owner of a local gift shop say that she would carry them in her shop when he has enough pre-made. 

So, we need a name for his little "company".

Some basic info, the pens are hand turned on the lathe in either wood or acrylic. His name is Izaiah. His nicknames are either Z, Bubby or Bub. If all goes well he plans to add other things such as mechanical pencils, razor handles, toothbrushes, wine corks, etc.

I don't have any pictures of any of his pens on this computer but they are like these:


So does anyone have any name ideas?

I think dignified is best, whatever he picks. I'm more inclined to pass by vendors who have ridiculous names. Something like "Works by Izaiah" would get me to look a second time. Good luck and you must be proud of him!

*UPDATE*

He decided on the name Finer Point Pens. Thank you everyone for the suggestions. He's waiting for one more part to come in the mail then he will start making them to sell. He's so excited.

I also got him to send me a pic of some he has done so here they are:

They look great. Maybe use a z at the end. Finer Point Penz? Just an idea.
