Well, it finally started to warm up a bit here. Mostly still well below zero (Celcius), but at least it is trending in the right direction. My workshop is actually useable now, so to kick off the long-awaited warmer temperatures, I spent the last several days working on an order placed by a colleague to give as gifts to graduating family members.
The desired pen style was not specified, nor the material to be used, so I figured that my most practical fountain pen style, the 'Shirt pocket Fountain Pen' (SPFP), would probably be the best option. It is sized, as the name suggests, to fit well in a typical shirt pocket, and has a tapered barrel to allow the cap to be posted very securely. I have fitted each with a fine steel nib for now.
Just for a bit of fun, I gave each of these pens a different end shape - one flat, another coned, another domed, and one rounded.
Pictures are always fun to look at, so I will just load up a bunch below.
Thanks for looking!
