    First Fountain Pen

    Classic Gold with Curly Bubinga.
    Sanded to 12,000 MM, applied 6 coats of Minwax Clear Gloss Poly
    and applied 2 protective coats of Brazilian Carnauba.
    As always comments and suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Les.

    Beautiful job as always, Les. VERY nicely done!
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Les, have you written with these? I have made a couple of these that came with the "fine" tip but they never wrote very smooth. I have always wondered if the "medium" tips would be better? These pens look amazing! Great job!

    I haven't written with these fountain pens so can't answer you question.
