Title IAP Collection Pen #18
Description Ringneck Pheasant Feather Rhodium Jr Gentleman pen by John Underhill
Date Added to Collection December 10, 2014
Maker John Underhill
Materials Ringneck Pheasant Feathers, Silmar 41 Poly Resin
Components Rhodium Junior Gentleman II rollerball set
Tools / Machinery Used Delta 46-460, Skew, Parting Tool, all materials to cast
Process The process started with selecting the Ringneck Pheasant feathers. They were glued to tubes, allowed to dry, wiped with an alcohol solution to remove glue and moisture and cast in Silmar 41. The feather finial was created by gluing feathers to the end of a 5/8 scrap piece of clear acrylic. It was cast the same as the pen body and turned to size. It was finished the same as the pen body prior to parting off just behind the feathers. The existing cap finial was tapped out with a steel punch over a wooden block and the feather finial was secured
Maker's Comments This was a 3 day process from start to finish with drying time between steps. All of the feathers came from a domestic raised pheasant because it is illegal to use any wild bird feather for sale or profit.
