Fountain Pen Making update 11

Hey everyone. A day late but family comes first. So, big news is that I have sold a pen, it has been paid for shipped out and it on it’s way to a hopefully happy customer. The design that the client wanted was a copy of the pen I made for my daughter. I think it turned out quite well.

So I have since finishing that started on the next pen for someone who has been helping me a lot with learning how to make pens. It was a material that I had never used before and so when I put my tools to it I found that it seemed to chip a lot. Well I thought this was because my tools were a bit blunt as I haven’t sharpened them much. So I went to sharpen them and didn’t notice that someone at work had taken a big chunk out of the grinder wheel and so I didn’t get the right angle when I sharpened it. Luckily I noticed before too long and managed to correct the sharpening mistake.

Now, where do I go from here? I want to progress, I want to make more people their custom pens as making that first one for someone was incredibly rewarding and am so looking forward to hearing from them. I have expanded upon my idea for being able to mix and match the caps and barrels I make by keeping the threads the same and have a solid idea of how I can achieve this. The thing is if I want to progress and make people pens I am going to need a website. I looked into it and god I have no idea where to start with that. Well that’s it for now, take care. If anyone wanted a custom pen for themselves or a gift for someone send me a message and we can work something out.
