Being someone who likes to make pens, I always have one of my own creations in my pocket.  I lose these creations about every other month for one reason or another and have to make myself a new pen.  The pen you see here was my experiment.  I had heard a lot about the unique feel of a Titanium nib and decided to create such a pen for myself.  I got it made, inked it up, and HOLY COW... too flexy for my taste.  I press too hard when I write the way it is.  This thing made me feel like I was using a magic marker.  So its time to find it a new home.  If you like good line variation and a smooth nib, this should be great for you.   It just wasn't to my own taste.   The pen is around 5 1/2" long and has a Cap that does post.  The section measures about 13mm and the pen weighs in at around 24 grams.  The nib is a F Bock titanium and comes with a K6 screw in converter.  Because I did intend to make it for myself I bored out the inside fairly deep for eyedropper use.  It will hold around 5.5 ml of ink.  I would love to hear everyone's opinion.  The pen is for sale here.  www.jandjwooddesigns.net

Thanks for sharing your new work with us; I took a good look on your site & discovered there was ANOTHER pen, "calling my name!"  I have received your automated message saying "it is being prepared for shipment.

 

Your pen with the Titanium nib will undoubtably find a new home, with someone anxious to try that nib.
