A few modified slimlines

Here’s a few modified slimlines. They’re all single barrel, and you twist the nib to extend the refill. The long barrel can be a bit more difficult to do, but I think the flowing lines are worth it.

1. Rosewood and copper
2. Pink Ivory and chrome
3. Olive Wood and gunmetal
4. Olive Wood and black

As always, all comments are welcome -good, bad, and ugly.
Thanks for looking,
Sef

Okay, so how did you get the mechanism to work, or is this a kit made as a single piece? I’d really like to do the same thing, just not sure how you get the nib to twist the mechanism that usually extends the pen tip.

Wow!. I appreciate the interest and compliments guys.

Jimmy, I gotta admit that the petite pink pen is also my favorite. If it wasn’t pink, it would be mine. :)

Brat, The finish is BLO/CA. I forget how many coats.

The “trick” to the pens is that the front tube is not glued in. The nib, front tube, and transmission are all pressed together. It’s all held in place by the rear tube. I got the idea from a member on the IAP site. Here’s a link to davinci27’s thread there: http://www.penturners.org/forum/showthread.php?t=40692.

A great group of pens. Nice job on them and an interesting way to make the point disappear.

Thanks Karson. It really is amazing what you can do with the lowly slimline kit.
