This is great looking pen. Color of blank, chrome clip, stainless nib and sterling silver bands matches so well. Nib, barrel and cap sizes are also well balanced. Excellent job Robert!!

That is a stunning pen!  I caught myself staring at it for a minute, right before the drool started.

Clean design and perfect execution...

One question... Sterling rings are from tube and pressed into grooves?

I must give credit to Chuck Hutchings (Dalecamino) over on the IAP board. His tutorial started me off with bands:

There's a part of me that just wants to pet this -- I *know* that the barrel will be solid, but there's a part of me that almost expects it to really *feel* like velvet.  It's just lovely.... :puddle:

This is an example why I no longer purchase mass produced pens (no matter how few are made).  You always have the only one, and that's great!
