Default Cat's Eye Custom Acrylic

Hello, all.

Here is a custom order I thought I would post. This pen is done in 'Cat's Eye' acrylic in a classic shape with matching clip and fine nib.

Thanks for looking! Comments welcome.

Was is a PR or Alumite blank?
What size taps are you using to thread everything?(the threading sure looks really 'clean')

And I'd love to see a pictorial on putting that clip in there!

Great job. How do those threads hold up in the cap? Seems like they would strip easy.

Default Beautiful !!

Ken, That is an absolutely gorgeous pen!! I love both the profile of the pen as well as the unique blank that ties in so well with the matching gold nib and clip. The front section with the lip really accents the pen. Thanks for sharing!
