The PauperPen is a fountain pen that is obtained in just over 10 minutes from a can with the origami (paper-folding) technique.

happy new year to all :thumbup:

 

I think they are absolutely fantastic!

 

However, my attempt to make one would no doubt involve the words emergency room and stitches.

Thx :D

 

Making one of these fountain pens is not so dangerous as making a Hattori Hanzo sword, but it is equally satisfying.

PauperPen obtained from a can of beer, with MagicThorn nib.

 

Three different types of nibs are available for the PauperPen, all three obtained with the aluminum foil of the can, through one or two folds! This is the folding and cutting scheme of the MagicThorn nib:

Do not worry about the instructions. Important are the diagrams! The folding and cutting method is shown in the video above.

OK this is one of the more interesting posts I have read in ages. Bravo! :thumbup:

 

Now we know that, in the event of nuclear war or zombie apocalypse, we will be able to make our own fountain pens and help keep civilization alive.

This is really cool, amazing talent. Unfortunately with my lack of skills, also a sure way to bleed to death.

That's totally cool. Thank you.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
