Here is a custom order I just finished, a 'Bamboo' style fountain pen in this cool 'ivory' celluloid.
I don't often get the chance to turn celluloid on the lathe, as it is a pretty rare resin to get hold of. One of he earliest plastics, it is made of polymerized cellulose, and when turned, gives off a strong camphor smell. Matter of fact, my whole garage smelled a whole lot like a cough drop while I was working on this pen :-))
This pen was a custom order, and as requested has a medium steel JoWo nib installed. It also came
One of the things I like most about this material is that it looks so convincingly like casein resin. Maybe also like ivory, but I think less so.
In any case, it was a lot of fun to work with this stuff, as I don't come by it very often.
