Hello Sheaffer Fans!

 

I thought I'd share a pen I've been using for several months. I love it and use it as my day to day PFM (I could use a different one every day of the month from my PFM collection!). 

 

I realised I had a few spare bits from various repairs and projects that didn't conclude well, and so I thought I'd make my own "Harlequin" PFM!

 

I'm sure I'm not the fist to do this, but, hey-ho I like it and thought I'd share.

 

Green III cap, grey/gold nib section, blue barrel & burgundy tassie!

 

Interested in your thoughts,

 

Noj.

It's definitely a Harlequin.  :D As long as it writes, then it's OK.  :)

 

The PFM looks a bit like my Legacy 1  :)

Nice work. I like way the blue and the burgundy sit together.

 

Thanks.

I have a few P51s with different color hoods as the tips of their own original color hoods were broken and fallen off. I love them all.

Your PFM is lovely. As long as the innards are original the outer attire do not make any difference. At least for me.

I... actually like that better than any of the standard PFM models.

 

I'm going to make one of my own now.

 

Thanks for the inspiration!
