    Default Bulb Fillers with Eversharp Nibs

    I've been making pens for around two years now. I enjoy pouring my own alumilite blanks and making basic JoWo #6 type cartridge/converter pens.

    Recently I've made a few bulb fillers that use new old stock Eversharp flexible nibs.

    These pens are made from German ebonite, with clear alumilite components. The sterling roll stops are unique and made by one of our associates.





    Here's a video showing the pen in operation:



    Just put in a big order for Nikko ebonite, so expect more of these in the future! The pen I am currently working on is a bulb filler in purple German ebonite, with a Waterman #2 nib. (Don't worry, no vintage pens were harmed in the sourcing of these nibs, they come from damaged-beyond-repair pens or came to us sans pens.)

    Thanks for looking!

    Lovely pens and great concept. I love those nibs. They seems to give very fine hair lines. The Clip-less cap and the vintage look is original!!

    I build one or two of these a month. Just finished one with Nikko custom ebonite and a Waterman New York nib.
