Another small pen for another writer: the barrel, at her request, is 12mm at its widest. I used an 11mm triple tap for the cap and barrel. I almost went with a #5 nib, since the Jowo 6 requires a final 8.5mm ID counterbore at the tip of the section, and paring the section down to around 10.2mm OD to fit into the cap doesn’t leave a whole lotta wall left. But it’s fine once the nib housing is seated. (This is why I prefer ebonite for sections- since I pare the section by hand, I could see acrylic crumbling under my marginally competent hands. :)

Very nicely done !!!

What clip did you use ? ..... or did you make it ?
That’s my last “modern spoon” clip, purchased from Richard Greenwald about 3 years ago. To my knowledge, he hasn’t offered them up again. I sacrificed one of the clips to make a template, so that I can make more, should I find myself more hours in the day.

Looks very delicate but a good looking pen well done. PROKRAFT in the UK sell basic Pen clips blanks brass, not used them myself but do have some to try.
They are sold flat and drilled ready for shaping . Video on there Website.
