I wanted to start off the new year revisiting some simple designs, as a departure from the more complex builds I had been doing. These are a couple I made in tortoise shell acetate and bronze clip, and a custom pour red/black alumilite with silver clip. I cast the clips using wax models, and chose a hidden ring construction for them. The pens are around 5” nib to barrel end, and have double start 12.5x 2mm pitch threads. The octagonal bodies and caps are tapered slightly, by about 2 degrees.These are a good exercise in form, and have been quite popular with buyers. Both pens use jowo 6 nibs and are converter filled.
