In an effort to learn the lathe I have been turning some pens in my shop and here are my first three.

I am only starting to get a hang of it, but so far, so good.

Thank you, gentlemen. I will do a fountain pen for sure at some point. I am just learning this and got a pack of five ball point kits. So far I have made three of them and another almost ready. I also bought a few more ball point kits slated for some presents for family. Very few people out there want to receive a fountain pen, unfortunately, so I am going with ball point. But I will get to it, I promise. The more pens I make the better they become, so when the FP finally happens, it should be good.
