New Oversized Colossus.

July 16th, 2011

Here’s a slightly oversized version of my Colossus in solid bronze. The regular version is already a handful (~60-65g), but this one ups the ante a bit. I had to pay very close attention to where the balance point ended up in order to make the weight comfortable. Once that was done, it became remarkably pleasant to write with. It takes quite a bit of labour to make one of these, but I think the results are pretty nice. The nib is a smooth firm fine with a slightly wet flow. A beautiful writer.
