Titanic Desk Pen – custom made by Darrell Eisner and me

Titanic 2

My friend and penturner Darrell Eisner of Halifax, Nova Scotia, made a fountain pen commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.  I saw a similarity between the cap of the Titanic pen and my Eversharp Skyline desk sets and asked Darrel to make a new cap top with a small hole drilled in the very top.

My idea was to replace the clip and cap top of Titanic with this second one and to tap the hole to allow me to screw in a swivel assembly from an old desk set.  He sent me the new part and I followed through, with the result you see here.  I think it is very reminiscent of desk sets by Montblanc and Pelikan.
