Default Kitless copper

I was inspired a few weeks ago by Wizard with his "touch of copper" post. I have not done or posted a kitless pen in a long time so it was due.
Solid copper roller ball. cap threads are 12 x .8 mm triple start. Refill end is 3/8" x 24 tpi . With a Parker refill

I like it alot. I also like the fact that you made it a rollerball instead of fountain pen. It gives me inspiration to someday break out the dies and give this a try. Something I never attempted but always admire when they come up. great job and thanks for showing.

Pete, tongue and cheek kinda, not really half the size but I am going to reduce the diameter dramatically, This one is a 12mm trip start and I am going for a 10mm. So we will see on the weight.
