Thanks to your video I learnt something new today :Chased Hard Rubber - Chasing, the application of a surface pattern to an object such as a pen
http://www.richardspens.com/?page=ref/design/chasing.htm

The shiny black surface with chasing on the cap and barrel is fascinating. I can imagine Batman or other black leather clad individuals wanting one, maybe even a Pen Sith Lord.:)

Interesting info on the filling mechanism too. Does the twisting of the ink sac reduce its life span much ?
I felt the drama after you inked it up and hesitated before writing for the first time. The flexing of the nib is evident in your video too.

You could post some before and after restoration photos here along with the video.

A pen Sith Lord needs to complete his previous transaction with grandmia before considering any other purchases. :D

Hi Ivan...You need to increase your pen buying budget. Would the dark lord not give you a loan from his Galactic Credit Standard ? :haha:

The problem is the Queen has the power to hold back the emperor and his Dark Lord. She has untold powers that make the dark side look like an Ewok holiday.
