Default Custom Orange Duofold

I just finished up this pen, which was a commission from a friend. Normally I don't do vintage inspired/copied stuff, but hey, anything for a friend right?

She wanted an oversized Parker Duofold inspired pen, that was built around a Jowo 18K #8 nib, and piston filled. I had the orange alumilite custom cast for me, as I wanted an oranged that closely matched the vintage orange duofolds. Black ebonite was used for the section and finials. The metalwork is hand fabricated from bronze. This was a fun pen to make!

First words came to mind... "Holy crap!".... Shades of dark orange is my favorite warm colors. This is absolutely a gorgeous pen, sir!
