Thought I would show a collection of Custom Ebonite Fountain Pens that I've made. The lavender one had inclusions that were in the Ebonite. The Ebonite pen on the far left is Red and black Cumberland. I put a kit ballpoint pen that I made next to the Ebonite ones to give an idea of size. Thanks for looking! :)

Would it be possible to get a photo of them uncapped?

I wanted to get an idea of the size and shape of your nib sections. Now that I've seen a few of your individual pen posts, my questions are answered!

Nice looking pens would love to see a few more pictures and details such as size, Nib, Section and Feed and type of pen, Eye-Dropper, CC, Piston or whatever. Thanks and keep up the nice work

Had no idea ebonite came in this many colors (I've basically only seen black -- for feeds -- and varieties of brown and green).
Love the purply-mauve colored one.

I've also seen that purple colour mixed with black in a swirl pattern.
