Matte Black 'Bamboo' Style FP With Matching Pen Rest
Well, I finally got back into the shop the last couple of days, after a long stretch of duty time at work. Managed to finish the next order on my list, which is this matte black 'Bamboo' style fountain pen in black ebonite.
The request was triggered by the last matte black bamboo fountain pen that I made, but with one difference: the buyer wanted a matching pen rest. Initially I was going to simply make a cylindrical styled pen rest, with plain flat ends, and a matte finish to match the pen, but then I thought I would try to match the ends on this pen rest to the inset 'bamboo' ends of the pen. Tricky work, as the piece is quite small, but seems to have come out not bad.
In any case, I hope the gentleman who ordered this pen and rest is happy with them.
