Fascinating :D

Have you actually used it? I imagine it takes a bit of getting used to, as you are not holding it like a conventional pen. The advangtage being that your hand is not in the way to smudge the ink, which is particularly useful for left-handed people who generally find it more difficult not to smudge ink pens, as their hand is on the side of the script that has already been written.

Is it difficult to get the curved letters right? If you have smaller fingers, the friction of the nib on the paper would not be overcome, since there would be a gap between the finger and the holster, making it difficult to write clearly. I would suggest an adjustable strap so that it is adjustable to various finger sizes.

Thankyou for the interest! It remains untested at the moment, so unfortunately I cannot answer your questions. As I am currently a student my time is precious between projects and dissertations, but with a bit of luck I will be producing mkII versions of several of my designs (for sale with further luck). The scribe pictured was tailor made for my right index finger, so fits well, but I see your point on adjustability. I have been working on two large scale projects, one for the national trust and another for a smaller gallery, but hopefully will get back to inventing smaller items, which I am much more interested in.

Thanks again for the interest, it means a lot!

My pleasure. I can't wait to see the new version. It's really cool. I've done a good bit of calligraphy, so that prompted the questions. Also, while I think of it, in calligraphy, different fonts require you to turn the nib to different angles, usually 45 or 30 degrees, so you might want to include a way of turning the nib to different angles too, when you get back to working on it :D

Nice! I have been practicing schwabacher miniscule and germanic fonts, great for calligrafitti

With a bit of luck, the MKII's will be for sale this summer. But it all depends on how much time I have :)

So, this is whose idea I stole inadvertently - here: [link] But I swear, I happened on this photo only in the evening of the day the same idea came to me!

Haha, as much as I try, nothing is original these days, it's just how you add your own style to it. You have made it your own and it looks great! Thankyou for linking me, its more than most people do :)

Well, it IS original. After all, the idea and even the making of the thing shows for sure that you are clearly thinking forward of me. It's just that something good can come in more than one head independently!

welcome :)
Its a cool original piece of steampunk you have made!
I bet it's creepy when you put red ink in it. If you make another with a goth/vampire feel and had red ink, it would look like you were writing in blood. :)

It's a one-off for the time being, when I have some free time, I may produce some more for sale. I will have to decide on a price then.
