Default Purple!

The latest pen in the series that Iíve been working:
This is made from an alumilite blank I poured, which I tinted purple and mixed silver flake into. It has a nice translucency to it. As is the case with most of my recent pens, it has a handmade stainless steel clip and bands. The nib is a #6 jowo. Iím quite happy with it, and it exhibits the general shape and proportions that I try to use.
