I have a bunch of large blue vintage cellulose acetate tubes, which aren't usable for the normal size pens I make, so I figured I should try to use some of them. I designed this pen around a bock 380 nib (#8 size). This pen has 13mm cap threads, which is still on the narrower side for a #8 nib, but I wanted to be able to use the vintage material for the cap too, so the barrel needed to be as slim as possible. Due to being tubes, I had to use black acrylic as finials. The cap finial just has a small plug of acrylic, but the barrel needed a long acrylic finial, otherwise the taper would have cut through the cellulose tube. Trim is argentium silver. Over all length is about 5.25".

Really nice! And that's pretty thick for that stuff if you were able to cut 13mm threads and still use the material for the cap!
