Okay, so I live in Nebraska. Where I live there are farms and cattle everywhere. The cows actually do outnumber the people. So if you have ever been to a dairy farm.... you can't help but think this pen looks like a cow with one utter. Anyway, its a bulb filler with a 14mm body and 17 mm cap. The pen is 6 inches long capped. I got that whole length thing figured out since the last one. The pen body is 5 1/2" long. As near as my terrible math tells me the pen holds about 6.5ml of ink which is about 5 times as much as a converter. I would love to hear what everyone thinks... moo, because all I can.... mooo, think about... mooo, is a cow.

Jeff.

Very nice. What kind of nib does it have? Writing sample?

The pen has a fine Jowo nib. I don't have a writing sample... and you may thank me for that because my handwriting could use a little work.

Cool pen. I live among buildings, so the closest thing it might remind me is the Atom Heart Mother record.

Many converters hold 0.6ml, so 6.5ml sounds like enough for quite some days.

The more I look at it the more it gets charming.

The pattern looks terrific with the shape of the pen.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
