Idyll In Tibaldi Impero Celluloid


Scriptorium Pens
 Share

Recommended Posts

I've been fortunate enough to get my hands on some rods of the splendid Tibaldi Impero Celluloid. It took 5 months and filing a PayPal claim before I was actually able to receive the material I'd paid for. When it finally arrived, I couldn't resist taking time the very next day to make a pen for myself. :D I chose a Medium Idyll, clipless, with a black Japanese ebonite section so I wouldn't risk staining this lovely celluloid. I filled it up with Sailor Yama-Dori, and it has quickly become my personal favorite pen.

What a wonderful contrast within the material, the blue seems to glow from within. The simple uncluttered lines and streamlined seamless shape make the pen seem like an object to be contemplated. Beautifully done.

Thank you so much, Joel!

Beautiful! Are you going to have any of these for sale?

 

Yes! I acquired enough material to make approximately 15 pens. 9 have already been claimed. :)

Gorgeous! The Idyll is such a beautiful model. And the Tibaldi celluloid makes it something real special. I hope you enjoy your new work of functional art for years to come!

As you guessed, the Tibaldi Impero is long gone. :(

How might the celluloid become stained during the process? Would a different form of ebonite or an acrylic in the section bleed through to the barrel? Is the issue that the threads at that joint overlap, making the barrel material so thin?

The only reason to use a different material for the section is that celluloid stains easily, so dipping the nib and section into a bottle of ink can stain it quickly. It doesn't get the stain from the process of making the pen, just in dipping it into a bottle of ink.

Renee, thank you for the explanation. I own one pen where overlapping threads enable more show-through from a black section into a barrel made of light translucent Conway Stewart opal material, and it almost looks like a stain.

Unfortunately, there's no way to avoid show-through with transparent and semi-transparent materials.

I figured I should post this to say thank you to both zaddick and Renee for making such a wonderful pen.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      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.
