My LARP character can scribe and is learning map making. I have a small collections of writing implements. The pen on the far right has a ink cartridge in it. I wrapped some fabric around it to make it look less modern, but that is the best I can do and still have it work.I mostly use that one because the ease of use.
I want to use the metal nib dip pen but I don't like the plastic handle so I decided to make a wooden handle. The stick on the left is my starting point. After some whittling and sanding the handle is done. Now to stain it and add the nib.
