Default First Bulb Filler Kitless Fountain pen

Hello everyone, I got quite comfortable making kit less and decided i wanted to make something other than a cartridge converter pen. I had this Butterscotch acrylic laying around and ended up making this pen. Pen works well and fills smoothly. Holds right at 3ml of ink so it has a very large capacity! Cannot wait to include this in some of my other models. Let me know what you think!

That looks great - and nice to see someone branching out into a different type of kitless. I'm a long way from this yet! Very nice pen indeed.

That is sharp looking. Some day I will venture into kitless pens. It is a bit intimidating for a new guy like me.
You can teach and old dog new tricks, if that old dog has a desire to learn them. And the treats are good!

I got the sac for the bulb from Richard greenwalds. Kitless can be intimidating but give it a try! I jumped right into kitless but had a machining background. There is a lot of information on here and lots of people to assist so ask questions and have at it! And thanks sandsini, you have some quality work from what I have seen as well!
