(Andrew Lensky) My first fully designed and self-made fountain pen

Hi friends! Finally, I can boast of my own fully created fountain pen. Of course, I didn’t make the nib and used a standard nib unit with Germany nib, but the rest was built by me from start to end. So, welcome to viewing and discussion.

Congratulations.  A handsome classic tribute indeed.  And thank you for the long section.

Add lightness and simplicate.

Looking forward to its availability for purchase.

Do you have an intended price range in mind?

Is it a piston or CC filler?

 

For now only the CC filler but with blind cap for converter knob.

Do you plan to offer it for sale?

 

This prototype is not for sale because it is a prototype, but I can create the same one to order. I still have material, which I think is enough for 2 pens. Not sure if I can write it here, but the price is currently $300US + shipping. The term of making is 5 days. 3 steel nibs are available - clean EF and B, and M with ornament, but any JoWo #6 nib unit can be installed if you have your own nib unit with solid gold or titanium nib.

Congratulations. To design and make a fountain pen is a big achievement. I like your design and maybe an add-on clip will be a good complement.

Thanks. To create a clip is need to have additional equipment: either a milling machine or laser cutter. I don't have any. I was ready to buy other manufacturing clips, but it turned out that there are only clips produced in India on the market that I don't like and I don't want to buy them. So no clips yet. By the way, I don't use any clip on any my pens, because I hold all my pens in cases))

I find it quite attractive, simple, streamlined and elegant, evocative of old times. I quite like it.

If you are to be ephemeral, leave a good scent.

Hi @Andrew_L! That pen looks elegant - congratulations! But more important than the visuals is that you made it for your hand and customised for your writing and drawing style. :thumbup:

... and now, I'm looking forward to the first drawing you do with this pen ... 😇

One life!

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
