Anyone made any fountain pens with Stars and Stripes inlay?
A customer who purchased a Sierra Stars and Stripes wants a matching fountain pen.

I did this Jr Gent II rollerball, but the fountain pen version should be no different. Took some time, but I really liked the results.

I've made two Jr Gent II fountain pens with stars and stripes inlay. I had to convert the first one to a rollerball on the spot so I could make a sale. 2nd one is still in inventory.

The Stars and Stripes inlay pen (especially the JrGent-II style has gotten rave reviews. I have sold several. They all brought a good price -- no questions asked.

You have to get the premium price because of the significant time it takes to make one of these up and give it a finish worthy of the time spent.

Generally, it takes several hours just to put the stars into the blue field. The stripes go faster and turning is minimal

I've made several, both FP and Rollerball. I don't sell one at every show but they don't generally hang around long. I generally pair them with the laser engraved box with the Pledge of Alliance on the front that Ken Nelson at Kallenshaan sells.
