Well done to all of you and especially to Brad (Ironwood) for flying the Ozzie flag. Well done.

Brad, that is one of the neatest bullet pens I have seen in a long time!
Thanks Fred.
It’s good to have these competitions, to push ourselves into new directions and improving on old ones.
When I sat down one afternoon to design a pen for this competition, I had no idea I would end up with this design.
I had a couple of other things in mind, which were quickly dismissed when I worked out the limitations. This one almost didn’t make it as well. Fitting a Rollerball refill in between the two 458 cases wasn’t easy, Adding the clip and machining the adapters ate up precious millimeters.
I had intentions of adding this pen to the lineup that I sell, but amount of work that is required would probably rule out a decent return on what I could sell it for. A few of my regular customers have said they want one, so I will probably do a limited run of them , then call it quits on this one. Maybe.
