This is a new Fountain Pen kit to me. It comes with the Cap pre made which reduces the fun. It's supposed to be comfortable to hold due to the nib end having no threads. The Cap pushes on and is Hexagonal in profile. I don't make many Fountain Pens but thought I would see what you all thought
Don't think it's a winner for me but I would really appreciate your comments.

I have not been into fountain pens much, but I LIKE this one very much !!
The hex cap with round body intrigues me.
Is the cap a friction fit ? ... or possibly magnetic ?

What is the kit name and who sells it, please ?

Thanks for showing.

The Kit is sold by PROKRAFTS UK the cap is a good friction fit. I am still not sure myself but glad you like it. I think there is potential to shape the body to mach the cap something Prokraft show an example of but that takes it away from woodturning. The kits name is HEXA.

I like it. Yes it looks to be a natural fit for a faceted body. There have been a number of turners here use files and scrapers to form the flats. Give it a shot!

I thought we were the International Association of Pen Turners not pen filers. :)
I bought the kit out of curiosity. But I am pleased it's caught attention.
