Process Before beginning I sketch the pen to establish exact diameters at precise points along its length, and then the surface is turned to those precise dimensions. The cap bands are sterling silver stamped out of flat stock by hand with dies and a brass hammer on my bench
Maker's Comments In 1929 Sheaffer introduced the Balance, a slick art deco design that would head its lineup for the next 15 years. My version close to Sheaffer’s classic Oversize model: 5 5/8 inches long capped and 5/8 inches in diameter at the cap bands. The clip seam and cap bands are undetectable to touch. The cap and barrel screw together smoothly in 1 1/4 turns. The blood-veined green pearl material I used is the same celluloid Sheaffer used in their 1990s Limited Edition Millenium, a tribute to the original Balance. The clip is a rhodium plated Triton, and the steel nib/feed unit is from German maker Jowo.
