Default Ode to a Vacumatic

My version of a vacumatic blank with a clip tribute to Parker. Home brew PR resin sliced too many times to count, with hand fabricated sterling silver fittings. All comments welcome.

Holy Toledo, Bruce, are your eyes permanently crossed?!?!?

That is a clever segmentation. Great work!!

Bruce, that looks beautiful! I still aspire to building some kitless pens and seeing work like this really motivates me.

Great job! The fittings are nicely subdued to let the segmenting draw the eye. Top shelf!
