Trigger Fountain Pen

We managed to purchase this pen many thanks to our good friend Kite who oraganized a MO for Shawn Newton made pen. This is our first Shawn made to order (MTO) pen. We don't know what to expect from Shawn as this is our first pen.

The finished pen turn out to satisfactorily.

The 18K two tone gold nib was grind to a sharp italic by Shawn.

We like this pen very much as it remember as of the Disney character Trigger, and bring back those good childhood memory.

Some of friends don't like it, but don't say "why". Guess it is just not appealing to some "serious" adult.

As we are used to heavier pens, we felt this too better for us. This is due to the polyester resin material, and not Shawn skill of tuning the pen. Of couse, if the section can be made using other material, it will add a little weight to it.

Here is a sample writing using the "Tigger" fountain pen.

Merry Christmas!
