    Default My first handcrafted Fountain pen

    Hi all,
    This is my first pen I made on lathe.
    Made from SEM ebonite, grinded XXF Jowo nib. It's an eyedropper. The next one it will have a shutoff valve.
    It was a lot of fun making it.

    Wow nicely done. I really need to equip my lathe for threading so I can join the fun

    Nice shape all around. I like how you smoothed it out on the barrel after the threads, avoiding a sharp step down I usually see on pens. Excellent job!

    Thank you all.
    Ebonite its a great material to work with.
    The step down it's a key on this design, but it's time consuming.

    Very nice. Apart from the attractiveness of the pen itself, I like that you paid attention to putting a decent nib in there. And it looks comfortable to hold.
