I'd been working on and off on this pen for a week or so and finally finished it. I got some nice blue cellulose blanks from turners workshop (or some vendor across the pond) a while back and decided that the time was ripe to use one. The hardware took a bit of thought, as I wanted to go for a more geometric engraved pattern rather than something more organic like scrollwork or leaves, which took a long time to hand engrave. The pen is about 5" long capped and 13mm at the cap threads. It used a jowo 6 nib.

Fantastic!

I went to your site to see what was available but nothing is populated. New site?

I never get tired of seeing your artistry. But, I usually repeat my comments on appreciating your metalwork - superb. 👍

What Mark said above ^ ! Professional, and masterpiece all the way!

For the new people here - he does his own metal work! (It makes me jealous!)

Amazing. I have always liked your engraved leaves and natural designs, but I tell you what - the geometric pattern is every bit as cool to look at. I have no idea how you do this, but please keep sharing. Oh, and the cellulose pen is awesome too 😁

I am in awe of your pens, especially the metal engravings- beyond belief that you do this by hand— do you use strong magnification?? Again- beautiful craftsmanship and please keep sharing.
