Here is a pen I finished up, made from Conway Stewart “lapis” acrylic and bronze.
It is dodecahedral in cross section (transitioning to hexagonal in the middle and on the ends), with 6 facets going one way, and 6 going the other. The cap threads are 12.5mm by 2mm double start, and the pen is about 5.25” long when capped, and 5” from nib to end. I made a clip from bronze to match the gold flecks within the material. The nib is a 14k gold Jowo 6, and the pen fills via converter.

Off the charts with this one. Another front page pen. Lets just keep putting yours up there. Love that detail. Taking it to another level if there is one for you. Man that is one beautiful pen design and materials used are perfect. I may have to try something like that on a wood lathe.

Amazing! I'm guessing this was 3 months worth of filing, shaping, sanding and polishing. I'm in awe of the perfect alignment of the facets when the pen is screwed together.

Artistry John! I personally love the geometric transitions, subtle, but not an easy calculation. Beautiful colors also.
