    The Giant Pine Cone Zeta Pen

    GP5.jpgGP2.jpgGP3.jpg
    Hi,
    Meet the giant pen that I've just finished, it's a 3x scale replica of a TM Premium Zeta in full rhodium. It's 40 cms long and weighs in at 630 grams so it's a beast to try writing with, yes, it actually has a ink cartridge fitted, the main barrel is made from a large pine cone and resin blank that I cast myself. All metal components are aluminium turned on my lathe apart from the fake nib which is stainless steel. It took a fair bit of figuring out but I'm very pleased with the result, I'm not aware of any more like it out there but would be delighted to see a bigger brother.
    Also I'd like to invite you guys to think of a suitable name for this beast.

    Very impressive Neil!!
    *NICELY DONE*
    At first glance I was wondering where you got the tiny pen,
    until I read the post

    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    That is very impressive Neil. A lot of work & a brilliant result. You deserve a pat on the back for that one.

    Very cleverly done, I like that a lot, but not as an EDC pen...well done it shows some people don't only think outside the box but need a whole new bigger box!

    Hi, OK, I'm probably being a complete muppet but what does EDC mean
