Hi All,

Turned my first fountain pen and I'm pretty happy with the results. Burr elm, with the burr voids filled in with gold paint. Sanded back to 400, then waxed.

I have a question. I showed this to a friend of mine who writes with a fountain pen and he liked it, but said he'd prefer if the grip end with the nib was wider as he had "big clattery west of ireland hands" (actual quote :wink:). Can anyone recommend an alternative kit with a wider grip for the nib and a very high quality nib? He's willing to pay 60+ euros for the right pen.

Thanks in advance,

Stephen
