I haven’t turned a pen in a while, and I’ve never turned a Fountain pen.
So, I bought this kit from Penn State and turned this beautiful Kirinite Green Pearl Fountain pen.
This is the Vertex kit and has a magnetic closure and post.
You can use ink cartridges or a pump system with it.
I finished it with EEE compound, after sanding it to 600, and man o man, that really brought out the shine in it.

It was very fun to make and I’m sure once my family sees it, I’ll be making more.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

You’ll have to keep an eye on that one, Eric! It surely will grow legs and walk away with someone else!!

Beautiful Pen!
