Default My first hand made pens

Hello everyone,
Since I first hold a pen for my first time I started to dream about making my own pen. So, one day I bought a metal lathe, got a crush course on turning from a friend and finally made my first pens.

Let me know what do you think.
That are all made in SEM ebonite.

Regards,
Teo

Those black pens are very nicely made. Are you using Jowo #6 nibs?
The first photo is a very cool looking. What is the name of ebonite pattern?

In the third picture with your pens, I recognise the “Pelikan M800 Blue Stripe” (a beautiful pen), but I don’t recognise the third (grey) one. I know I’ve seen that cap lock type before, but I can’t remember who makes it. It is very interesting though.

Thank you
Yes, Jowo #6 but I'm having issues with the tap, I think I'll have to purchase a Tapco, you have only 7.5x0.5 here in Europe.
The ebonite it's called Sands.
The grey one is the Visconti Homo Sapiens Steel Oversize.

Hand me one of your pens, a cup of coffee and a fresh kolache and I would be ready to write. They are beautiful.

Hehe, kolač.
There are just the first iteration. The idea is to continue with Urushi.

Ahh the Homo Sapian. I have seen one before at the OFPS. It is a cool locking system.

Urushi is beyond my current skill level.


Here is a places that you can get the tap.

Jowo Tap

I wouldn't have thought that the difference between 7.5 and 7.4 would cause big issues. However, I do use a 7.4x.5 and have had no problems.
