    White and Red

    Hi All,

    thank you for all the comments recently. I have tried to incorporate your advise including tapered section and insert threads into this pen.

    I wanted to add a red band around the section but ran out of red blanks, trying and failing to cut very thin thread against a thin wall so had to use a pearl blank to finish it off.

    I'm really happy with this one

    Beautiful! Is the blank Casein? The profile and elements indicate you've been to this rodeo before. Very nice!

    Thank you so much for all of your comments,

    Hi Angelo,

    The nib is a Beaufort nib. I love this nib - it’s beautifully overstated. I have had it for a 3 months and finally figured that I’d like to use it on a very understated blank, making the nib the real feature

    Hi Mark,

    I think it is a Casein blank. I asked a supplier of blanks in the U.K. to ‘send me some blanks that I can put a thread into’. I got this. I carried out some research and I believe it’s a Conway Stewart.
