I have had this red Mazzucchelli cellulose acetate in my "Special Blanks" drawer for a while and kept picking it up and then putting it down as it never really appealed. It appeareds more toward the orange end of the red spectrum. However I decided to make it on the weekend and ended up being really pleasantly surprised by it. The colour of the finished pen is a much deeper red than I had anticipated.

Its a shame that this stuff isn't made any more, but I guess the scarcity adds to its appeal too.

The pen has 13mm triple lead threads and sterling silver accents that are cut from sheet using a jewellers saw. The coin is cast by a company based on my own design. Nib is a Bock and it is fed by c/c. The black finials are made from acrylic.

The pen, when closed, is around 144mm and open it's about 133mm.

I am happy to receive feedback, both positive and "constructive" 😊. I will not be offended at all.

Cheers
Ash

I never heard of that material however, here comes the “criticism”. That pen is absolutely awesome. Definitely one of, if not the best example of pen craftsmanship I’ve seen. Beautiful ! Hope that I wasn’t too harsh. Please don’t take offense.
I admit I’m a little bit crushed by your comments, but I’ll recover over time.

Thank you! 👍👍
