Poor nib looks so shy, always turning away from the camera. ;)

Very nice, bravo Shawn !

The pronounced concave section looks very ergonomically shaped hence comfortable

Stunning material and nice barrel shape.

My only suggestion would be making the cap shorter and shape the outside also convex as the barrel.

Beautiful pen. It almost seems a shame to put ink in it. A converter would mar the look. Would you use it as an eyedropper?

Thanks everybody.

Yes it's going to be used as an eyedropper.

The nib isn't one of mine, so yes, a bit shy.  :)

 

As for the shape - it's what the customer wanted.

 

Cheers.

I REALLY like that material.

 

It's probably for the better you resisted the temptation to name it "Golden Showers".   :P

Wow! That is a unique material and look. Would love to see it later after owner adds ink.
