Here is a fountain pen I finished up. I had the urge to play with Damascus steel some more, but generally hate pairing it with other busy materials, so I chose this transparent amber resin. The clip was made in two pieces, with a Damascus body and silver ring, which I blackened to match the Damascus. The ring and clip body are riveted together. It has a bock #6 nib, and is converter filled.

Very nice, as usual. How are you achieving the interior polish?

Absolutely spectacular, also interested in your process of polishing the insides. I tried a piece of cellulose that was extremely clear and for the life of me couldn't remove the scratches

I use an aluminum rod with a slit cut in it to hold the sandpaper. I go from about 320 to 3000, and then through the novus compounds. I’ve got some magic juice on the way, so I am curious to see how that works instead of the novus.

Do you hold the aluminum rod in a collet chuck?

Magic Juice produces a spectacular shine.
