Hello from Savannah, GA. I am a pen maker and recently came over to the realm of fountain pens. After I made my first one, I was hooked and love the writing elegance and asthetic you only find with this type of pen. Another hobby of mine for a long time is bladesmithing so I will be looking into making my own hardware for kitless fountain pens in the near future. There is a lot to learn and this forum has been a great place to do research and get some very good information. I hope to make my own contributions as I continue to learn and develop my skills.

 

Below are my two latest pens that I would like to share briefly. The first one is black stingray skin. The second is Campo del Cielo meteorite which I made exclusively for my mother who just wanted a pen that was "very unique". She will get that one as a surprise for Christmas. If there is interest, I can post a separate topic with more details about the construction process of either of these pens. Just let me know.

Hello! Those look so cool. No doubt a thread about the process of making them would be something a lot of us would like to see. :)

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Hello and welcome to FPN from DownUnder, absolutely beautiful pens. Well done.
Words flowing from the soul and conveyed to paper, require the touch of a fountain pens soft carress.Distinct and individual like a lovers touch.
