Default kitless landscape clicker

Here's my latest effort. Made a mistake at the top by the clip and turned it down too much, so the clip sticks out. Guess I'll have to get a different clip or live with this one. Very irritated with myself!

The blank is a "landscape" blank by Eugenio Soto, AKA El Mostro/Muttblanks. It's all alumilite. It is not worthless wood. Very interesting blanks to say the least.

I'm curious to see how the blank will hold out since there are no tubes.

Well, I don't understand why they are orientated the wrong way. They are correct when viewed on the computer?

Thank you sir. I am still trying to figure out the best design for the nosecone and overall design. The nose cone makes a big difference in the looks, that is for sure!

The blank is very neat. you get the same look as a hybrid blank, but with the advantages of alumilite, which I am a big fan of. Eugenio gets all the credit for that

I'm wondering if you have used a pen with one of these clickers and didn't like it, or just don't like the styling of the pen? Reason I ask is because once I used one, I was hooked! They are a really smooth click, and in my opinion, more reliable. They are all metal with no plastic parts to break or jam if dropped.

I just don't like the styling of the pen, especially the nib. Reminds be of the Revolver pens, not a fan of the fat front end. I agree - the blank is beautiful and I also love working with alumilite.

I really like the smoothness of the Vertex clicker, it's silent. Never used this pen so I imagine that is what you refer to? That way people aren't disrupting meetings with their "click-itty-click-click ..... click click"! lol

I think the perspective is skewing the perception of the pen's shape. Would you take another picture with the pen the same distance at both ends from the lens?

The vertical/horizontal thing is annoying to say the least. For now take a picture with the camera held horizontally and a second held vertically. Once you attach the pictures preview the post and see which orientation they are in and remove the one that doesn't look right. Then nobody has to tilt their head.

I know, it's hard to look at for sure! I'm at work, so I can do it tonight. Weird thing is the picture is correctly orientated, but when I load it to forum it's sideways. Never had that happen?

The Schmidt clicker is very quiet too, and smooth. I am really struggling with nose cone design, unless I lengthen the cone, which takes away from the blank. The one I did from The wife recently had a longer nose cone, and I was able to dish it out some for her to grip, which she loved but created a somewhat strange look to some people. Mostly because the cone was from different material.

Thank you everyone for the comments and constructive criticism. I could use both!
