This past 2 weeks have been very busy. I have had a bunch of time to work on pens. So the good news is that the queue is now nearly completely open. I just finished up 5 different special orders and now have openings for the next week. So if you are interested in a custom build I could be starting on your pen as early as this weekend.
On the R & D side of things I just got an order of gemstones in (mostly semi-precious except for a sapphire). I plan on integrating those into some of my future pen builds. I am working on a piston filler for myself using a Pelikan M800 nib and hopefully having a Sapphire inlaid into the clip. Stay tuned it should be pretty cool when I am done.
