Default Red Mallee Burl Kitless Fountain Pen

Some of the basics...
  • Burl body and cap
  • Ebonite section
  • Delrin cap liner and threads
  • #6 Jowo nib
  • Triple lead threads

I like to showcase the beauty of the wood without too much bling. The next step is to work on clip making. Let me know your thoughts!

Very nice, I love the styling. The addition of a clip would really lift it to the next level, but as it is , is still great.

First, thank you to everyone who has commented so far!

Funny you should ask about the red (or brown(in my estimation)) mallee. I first finished this pen months ago. And to my disappointment, it turned into an orange peel of sorts. Lots of pits and irregularities. I bought the GluBoost system from Exoticblanks.com, re-sanded, and re-applied the finish to get a muuuuch better end result. So far so good! I think for future versions of Australian mallee, I will turn close to the final dimensions and let it sit for a while before finishing.

That is a stunning pen. Well done, and interesting comments about the finish.

Thanks for sharing. Nice photography also.
