Smile Custom Double Twist Mokume Gane Fountain Pen

Made from a solid round bar of double twist copper and nickel-silver Mokume Gane made by Mike Sakmar. It's a custom fountain pen with the upper and lower finials machined from stainless steel and section machined from solid copper rod. Both cap, barrel and section were prepped prepped with a feldspar paste and patina applied. I was trying to decide whether make a section out of stainless or copper and went with the copper. Had fun making it! Doc

Beautiful work Doc

Did the pattern line up like that by chance or is there a hidden skill there I cannot figure out?

I think it is a hidden skill of Wizard magic!!! (think it actually has to do with the thread cutting length)

Magnificent Double Twist Mokume Gane Fountain Pen Doc.
Glorious Double Twist Blank, Beautiful Profile, and Proportions.
Expertly Fitted and Finished.
I love your Choice of the Copper Section, it Compliments the Blank Brilliantly.
Copper, being a Soft Material has some Inherent Problems with Machining.
But seems that you were able "To More than Adequately Cope".
Outstanding Craftsmanship Displayed Once Again.
Congratulations,
Brian.

Brad and Randy, Thank you both for the kind words. Randy, that technique was taught to me a by an outstanding pen maker and friend. I miss seeing him on here. I call him the Timebandit or Justin. I believe you call him your son.

Randy , you are correct...by slowly and gradually reducing the length of the threaded area and thus the stop point for the threads until the pattern alignment

Mal, Thank you! I got the clip from Roy when he owned the Classic Nib.
I believe that clip is called Diane. Kind Regards, Doc
