My only comment is that is way too large in diameter.

As a point of reference: the barrel bushing diameter for the Churchill/El Grande, itself a large pen, is .536. In fact, even the cap bushing diameter is only .590.

I just did a quick survey of Exotic Blanks bushing size chart. Of 51 fountain pens in the chart, only 7 had barrel bushings larger than .55 (about 14mm).

I think I would look at getting the diameter down to the 13-14mm range.

As always, FWIW
