Default Vintage Ruby Bakelite

Hello,

It's been a while since I've posted any pics. Been busy trying to improve my skills on kitless/custom.

This is vintage ruby bakelite, black Japanese hard rubber and stainless steel. Everything is made by me except the nib and converter.

For anyone who cares, the nib is a Jowo #6. Cap threads are m14 triple start.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you! This bakelite is very special. Super luxurious feel. It's hard to describe.

Beautiful pen Lewis. I really like that blank, but the black accents also add a special quality.

Thank you. I agree but I'm biased!

Still can't believe you didn't win first place with all the work that went into that beautiful pen. First place in my book Lewis.
