Fountain-Pens

Post by Graeme » Mon Sep 08, 2014 7:25 am

Hi Guys,
The Bog Oak has finally dried out and I can start making pens. It seemed to take forever!! (well it has been in a bog for thousands of years :D) but the oak has turned out amazing, it is dark brown with black grain. :headbang:

I've added 3 fountain pens to our site, I will work on some other models and put them up over the next week.

Let me know what you guys think http://saswatchco.com/pens.html :pray:

Regards
Graeme

These look great. My issue is that pens, like shoes, are hard to buy online.

I want to see how a pen fits and feels in the hand. And I actually still write with fountain pens (I have 3 at work currently) :)

The prices were set in Euros so the site automatically converts them to US Dollars. Is that what your referring to?

Must be. $118.63 is too random to be a price that was chosen.

The nibs on these are gold and they have both the piston filler and a cartridge so you can choose which one you prefer to use.

Very nice, Graeme. :cheers:
Like the Dublin link. In particular, Beckett and Joyce were closely linked. The young Beckett acted as a secretary of sorts for Joyce while in Paris (he transcribed parts of FW as by this time Joyce's eyesight was very poor). :ugeek:

What _do_ you know? :lol:

Here, they work with both refillable and throw away cartridges. The "thingy" that's currently attached has a screw mechanism at the end. You dip the tip in the ink (the tip of your pen, not your micro-penis ;) ) and turn it and it sucks the ink up into the refillable cartridge :)
