Pen's with Slip On Caps

After making a couple of pens with slip in caps for a customer I decided it was time to make one for myself. 

His post about the pens with great pictures

What a treat yesterday morning when the mail person came to my door with these. 

I asked Chris if he could make two pens for me using these clips from my parts bucket. I asked for them to be with #6 size nibs. After a little design discussion this is what Chris came up with. I could not be happier

The pens are so comfortable to hold,light weight,the Schmidt nibs and feed so wet and wonderful,the material smooth and silky and Great Quality Workmanship.

The pen caps tightly and easily and posts very securely with little pressure. The nib stays airtight when capped...but it is also made to use Hero 616 caps for a different look. These caps work just as well as the matching caps. I can't decide what way I like them the best

The orange one reminds me of early red hard rubber pens from a 100 years ago and the black Delron is similar to black hard rubber except no rubbery smell and very tough material! 

Now I must go and play some more.!!!

The chrome caps makes one think of those 1950's style of pen...I mean I just could not be happier. I now have 5 pens made by Chris with another matching roller ball on order.

 I had this hooded nib unit in stock so I though why not.
