I’ve made a few similar pens to this in purple, using acrylic for the threads and section. This is the green version which, instead of acrylic, has ebonite threads and section. It also has an ebonite finial on the barrel. This allows me to make a complete pen from a single wooden blank (they are quite pricey).

This pen also has a fully lined cap. I now do this on all my wooden pens. The final picture shows the ebonite cap insert which is glued inside the wood next to it. It has a stepped profile because I add a taper to the cap when shaping, so this ensures the wall thickness isn’t compromised. It does add a bit of work, and a certain amount of precision is needed, especially when boring the insides of the cap so each step is exactly aligned with the corresponding step on the insert.

The threads are 13mm triple lead and the nib is a Jowo no6. It measures 143mm long. Barrel steps up to 15.3mm diameter.

Outstanding work !!!!
That's impressive. I'm sure it takes some patience along with the precision ...... AND ......
...... AND time !!!!!

You say .... "Barrel steps up to 15.3mm diameter." ..... Does that match the cap diameter ?

And, given that the barrel "steps up to 15.3mm diameter" what is the smallest diameter ?

Thanks in advance ! . . :D

Thanks Mal

The cap diameter is 16.5 so it isn’t quite flush with the barrel when closed. And the barrel tapers towards the back down to around 13.5 mm. (The cap doesn’t post on this one).
