    Roman Harvest Trustone

    I finished this one the other day. Roman Harvest with White w/Gold Matrix trustone. I had debated using Gold Titanium w/Rhodium accents but decided I liked it better with Rhodium w/Gold titanium accents. What do you think? Those choices are always difficult for me, but I tend to prefer the look...

    Custom Olivewood Prototype

    This fountain pen has been an idea in my head for a few years now, and this is my first successful attempt at it. I still have a few processes to iron out as I develop this design (hidden clip, CA finish, wall thicknesses), but as a proof of concept I am very pleased with how this pen came out...

    Oregon Tru-Quarter

    Here's one from a pair of nearly identical twins commissioned by my state representative. He asked for a couple pens that symbolized Oregon, preferably with some Oregon timber, to give as gifts. The barrels are Oregon Myrtlewood (much better to turn and prettier than Doug Fir). Finished with...

    I made this today .... Amboyna Burl on Triton Components. A rollerball but it will easily convert to a fountain. To bad they don't sell components that include each option. :eek::smile: That'll NEVER happen! :biggrin::wink: Comments and critiques welcome. Thanks for looking! :smile:

    Good afternoon. Does anyone know if there are any suppliers for fountain pen kits that do not use ink cartridges? These probably would be vaccuum or lever filled. Thanks much.
