Pen 1

"Everything bar the nib and ink delivery system were hand made by me. This is only the 3rd fountain pen I have ever made, so I’m still learning as I go!
I have used Blackwood, sealed with CA glue, and sanded back to a fine silk finish.

The copper was textured and patina added before sealing with CA Glue to prevent corrosion against the oils from the users hands.
The thickness of the copper and aluminium frame, I have made to build the pen on, varies throughout the pen to achieve a comfortable weight and balance.

The clip was shaped by hand from a piece of flat stock and riveted to the cap once finished.

Nib is a Kaweco medium for those interested."

Pen 2

Here is my entry for the contest.
It is made from a custom Aluminite blank made by Tim Mckensie. It is made with 3 colors along with diamond dust for extra sparkle!
I used 14 x 1.5 tap/die for the cap to body junction to allow extra size and flexibility on the section design, for added comfort.
Also used 10 x 1.0 for section, and 8 x .75 for the nib housing. It is a jowo #6 medium nib.
This material is really spectacular, of course pictures don't do it justice

Pen 4

A Novel Kitless Ballpoint Pen Design

Nothing twisted about this one ... 5 straight bars of wood and 4 straight grooves, then glue and turning.
The center bar is hard maple and the others are Thuya Burl. All parts were made by me except the spring,
refill, and the internal click mechanism. All hardware is brass, shaped on my metal lathe and mill.
The pushbutton top is oversized and milled "square" so that it acts as a roll stop. No clip as this is
intended to be a desktop pen. The red ends on the barrel are dyed and stabilized maple burl. CA finish.

The large pushbutton is machined with conical top and bottom surfaces; squared edges appear "elliptical".

One picture shows the refill retracted; one picture extended; both pics show pushbutton in normal position.
The third picture shows the pushbutton held in the pushed down position; refill is extended beyond normal.
In the down position, the button lower cone fits in a concave depression machined in the pen's top finial.

Pen 6

Here is my kitless pen entry for the 2018 Bash. This pen represents several firsts for me and a lot of “design oppurtunities….”. This is my first ink window, piston assembly and clear section/end caps. The white and blue bodies are made from Omas material. The ink window, section and end caps are made from an Italian resin that reminded me of cracked ice. The piston filler assembly is from Richard Greenwald and the clip is from a kit pen. The nib is a #6 Jowo that writes quite nicely! It’s filled with Iroshizuku Tsuki-Yo ink. The cap to body threads are 14m triple start.

Pen 7

Pen is made from a mokume gane fusing combinations of the three metals: brass, copper and nickel silver into a 12 inch long and 3/4 inch round billet. Machined on own, finished and patinated to bring out all three metals. Finished the metal surface with feldspar to shear off metal and thus prevent a smearing and overlapping of the metals. A patina finish is applied to bring out and contrast the color of each of the three different metal components. Caswell Metal Lacquer applied and dried.
