This is a Gatsby pen in chrome and gunmetal. The blank is a Woodshed called Metal Works, from Bear Tooth Woods. I like how it turned out.

Jim nice pen. I have to ask this question and it has been on my mind for a few years now. You take a ton of photos of your pens and it is good to see all sides to them but my question is do you store these photos somewhere?? Can you call up any of your pens from the past at any time?? It would take alot of memory storage to do this. Just curious. Humor me. ;)

As a matter of fact I can and do. Granted I've lost a lot of photos over the years, especially of my early pens. But it's a good resource for me. I can look at a past pen to see if I back painted a particular blank, for instance. I generally take photos of the whole process, on average 60-100 per pen. After they're edited, they don't require nearly as much storage space. I like to tell people that photos are my journal. You should see how many photos I take on a day trip to San Francisco!

Even before digital, I took a lot of photos. When a friend of mine and I went to Europe in 1987, I used 36 rolls of 35mm film. About a third were 36 exposure rolls, so close to 1,000 photos.

Wow, I am speechless. 60 to 100 per pen. :eek:
