This is the pen I sent to my partner, penmaker1967. His camera isnít working so he asked me to post the pic. It is an Indigo kit paired with a Diamondcast blank.

The fit and finish is superb, very well made. Iím sure it will get lots so comments at work. He mentioned the twist mechanism is from a Gatsby pen.

He also threw in some blanks, very nice! Canít wait to make a pen with the redwood, interesting grain.

Thanks for organizing this PITH, it is my first one, what a great experience!

Cheers Darin! Thank you!

I received this very nice pen and blanks from Mark James. The segmenting is amazing and most of the blanks I have never turned those woods. Thanks Mark for your generosity !

Default My Pith Pen

All I can say is WOW! I received my first fountain pen from Tim (AKA TG Design).

A note on the pen from Tim.

"The wood is desert ironwood, itís the first time I made a pen with it. I used a jig I designed and made to put the five sided twist on it after I turn the diameters down. The cap was fun because it has a tapper in it. I think the pen kit in gold really pops. Hope you like it, I know foundation pens can be fussy, but itís a nice change."

This pictures don't do this pen justice. The fit and finish are superb.

Tim sent some ash and madrone burl pen blanks as part of the Deal.

Thank you Tim for a beautiful pen. You can be my Pith Partner anytime...

This is an incredibly sneaky pen. You really need to read the description and then look carefully at the pictures.

Very,very nice - not an everyday turning. Well done.
