Too late to swap this for one of my others in that crazy FreeForAll Contest:biggrin: Besides, I have to give those mere mortals a chance:devil::biggrin:

It's a pity I can't get the pics better cos the blue in this one is from a bowling ball blank I got from Jeff ( SpongeBob ) It has cool streaks in it.
In my rush to get it finished, I just stuck on a kit nib, but bored it out to take a Parker refill. I'll change the nib next weekend when I get back home. Both the cap and the body actually have a slight taper, but I drilled the blank so thin I couldn't afford to taper them any more.

Comments, criticism welcome:biggrin:

That pen is pretty sweet with a nice clean shape. You're right about the photo, because that blue is dazzling and contains some really spectacular pearl. Love how you used it for a q-tip clip too, that really works. It's good it didn't make the contest, because there's way too many awesome pens over there already!

Awesome pen as usual Skiprat, and I have yet to see any of your pens that I wouldn't love to add to my collection.

And maybe its just me, but I like the contrast between the silver body and gold nib end.
