Default slimmest body parker refill pen

I am looking for a slim body Parker refill pen. I have made a few 'Tetra's' and while they are a slim body pen they have a flaw in their design and the clip section doesn't stay put even with a drop of CA on that piece. I would love to find a parker refill pen that has as slime of a body as the Tetra.

Any advice/input is welcomed

The slimmest I could identify was the Executive at an outside diameter of .420".

It has the further advantage of being about $5.

I started a thread in Exotics forum, where I can give you a link to our website, you will find that thread by following this link

I just bought 30 of them (chrome, satin, gun metal). Easy to make, lots of blank material to show-off (length-wise), sell well, can also we equipped with a Parker-style gel refill (writes more like a RB). And inexpensive.

I had asked a similar question a year or so ago and was told about the Zoe pen kit by an IAP member I can't remember now. It uses an 8 mm tube and I have made several and I think they are nice. Here is a link:

It is probably more a ladies pen, but if that is what you are looking for it could be a good option...

The Tempest is .370 at the nib if you like click pens.
