Well, I thought I'd make another one of these before I forgot how I did the first one, and what size drills, taps, and dies I used on the first one. Yes, I know - I could write it down. But I didn't, so I figured I had better go through it all again to solidify the technique. Maybe I will write it all down. Later.
So once again, the 'Micro Pocket Pen' (or so I am calling it) is designed to be ultra-compact for easy portability in pocket or purse (personally, I use the little 'watch pocket' on the right side of my jeans). It is a mere 85mm long when capped (about 3 3/8 inches), but expands to a nice 120mm (4 3/4 inches) when posted, which I find quite comfortable for long periods of writing, even with fairly large hands (excuse the inky fingers).
I used a couple of pieces of the Golden Smoke resin I picked up from Bear Tooth Woods, and framed them in black acrylic. The nib is a single-tone medium polished steel JoWo nib (not sure why I didn't put a two-tone in here...maybe I will swap it out, now that I am thinking of it..). The pen will of course not fit a converter, it is cartridge only. Takes a standard size - I used a Private Reserve cartridge to size out the pen.
Thanks for looking!
