This is a custom order I recently finished up. The customer had a few caveats, such as the use of his nib, specific materials, piston fill mechanism, and silver trim.

he supplied a 90’s era Parker duofold nib, which I had to pair with an ebonite feed and make a nib unit for, which unscrews from the section like a standard Jowo unit.

the material he specified was a 90’s era duofold blue crushed velvet acrylic, which I was lucky to find a block of a few years ago. We decided on a blue ink window to match the material.

as mentioned, the fill mechanism is a piston, as the feed is not compatible with a converter, and the customer had a preference for a piston unit.

l fabricated all the trim and clip from silver, per his specifications. He wanted a slim, simple clip, as well as slim bands.

this was a pretty neat build, and I was happy with how it turned out.

I love the material and the shape is clean and sophisticated looking. Nothing with bulbous ends. A++ Thanks for showing.
