Here's the thread with the details.
Look at it! It looks like a piece of bamboo!
He even hollowed the ends out.
I've never had a pen with such a large step before and I wasn't sure if it would be comfortable or not - I gotta say it's great though. I just stick my thumb up on the barrel and go to town. No issues with the step at all. I have handled the Pilot Bamboo before, so I have a little experience with the step, but only a minute or two when I tested it out. Here is the actual pen. From what I can remember of the Pilot, I gotta say I like the Dr Goretex bamboo a WHOLE lot more. The acrylic has such a slick texture and I just don't want to put it down. Such a delight.
And with a medium (and he included a broad) Meister Nib, you know it writes PERFECTLY. Love it!
It's not a small pen either. Here it is next to my buddy's 149.
Lamy Safari stained with Bad Green Gator.
And next to another Dr Goretex creation. I've been calling it the blackwood.
Now for the Blackwood.
I don't know what else to call it but I think that sounds really good.
Also no small pen by any means - very comfortable to hold. This guy does really good work.
This pen is made from kit parts so the nib is just a kit nib, but I gotta say that it's REALLY good. Very smooth and wet and just downright perfect. Ken sent me another section and nib for this pen since the one it came with had been dropped at some point, and the nib didn't fit tightly in the section anymore.
Next to a Lamy Safari for size.
