I took a break from the Bamboo Fountain Pen Kickstarter project to put blade to backyard bamboo and try my hand at making a real bamboo fountain pen. The old way fashioned way.
Fortunately my backyard is filled with bamboo and the Internet is filled with videos of brave pioneers who came before. It is while standing upon their shoulders that I humbly submit my own chronicled attempt at this writing tool of yesteryear.
Give a shot on your own. It's surprisingly simple and thoroughly satisfying.
