This week's featured article

A Journey into kitless fountain pen turning.

John Albert's custom pen

There are two major types of hand-made fountain pens: Kits, and Kitless. Kit pens are made from pre-fabricated parts, typically a brass body tube, thin metal section and nib, and metal finials. Kitless pens use a pre-made nib (or nib unit), and everything else is hand made. This article will address various factors involved in making a kitless pen.

Turning a kitless pen involves the use of a lathe (wood lathe or metal lathe) to shape the parts of the pen : Grip section, Body, and Cap. These parts are typically made from synthetic materials, including acrylics and ebonite, but some custom pen makers also use natural materials such as wood, bone, and metal.

See Custom Pen Makers for a list of pen turners making and selling pens. These makers produce custom "commissioned" pens, as well as standard models for sale, and many also sell shop "seconds".
