To make this kit you will also need -
Photo shows a Sierra plated in black chrome and dressed in a John U Reeves Pheasant Feather pen blank (blank sold separately).
Feather blanks are built right onto the pen kit tube. So you need a kit that uses the same size tube that the blank was built on. In the case of the Sierra/Gatsby, there are a number of different styles and clones (you can see those here - https://www.exoticblanks.com/Sierra-Style-Pen-Kits/?pageId=1&itemsPerPage=384 ) Each Sierra style kit is a little different, but each will take the same size tube and have a similar finished dimension (as dictated by the tube).
You didnt mention what was awkward with the Sierra, but I'm assuming that its the size (thickness), as this is true for me as well (I have small hands). Personally, I like the Aero. It's thinner, has a feminine band, and is finial twist. ( https://www.exoticblanks.com/Aero-Ballpoint-pen-kits/ )
But you will need a blank build on the Aero tube, a Sierra blank is too big to fit the Aero.
For single tube pens, John generally makes feathers for the Aero, Majestic Squire, Sierra, Bolt Action, and Nouveau Sceptre kits. But if there is a specific kit that your wife loves, LMK and I will see what we can do!! :)
