I spent quite a few hours on this one. In fact, I spent a few days on another attempt, which I won't post. I took some good advice from a fellow pen maker and then went to work on this one. Comments appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Overall length 135 mm (5 1/4")
Uncapped 125 mm (5")
Cap posted 170 mm (6 3/4")

Cap diameter 17.5 mm

Section diameter 12mm

Polished steel #6 Meisternib (Jowo)

The transition from section to barrel is absolutely perfect. The finish, as always, if flawless. Very nice work!

This one's a true masterpiece, Robert. Exquisite in every detail. The care and thought you put into your pens really shows. This one is just beckoning to be written with.

Thanks! I'm always happy when someone comments on a clip. It's difficult for me to judge just what works best with a given shape. :thumbup:

Very nice job. I think the curves of the clip suit the swirl of the celluloid very well
