African Bushveld fountain pen


This fountain pen smoulders! It is reminiscent of the heat of a sunset in dry African bushveld … the tawny grass, embers from a campfire, the dark waters of a drinking hole as one waits in hushed silence for game to emerge to slake their thirst. Or the heat from metal being forged in a furnace … of molten copper, of iron, of gold.

The pens shown in the photographs have been sold, this is an in-house resin mix and we have other African Bushveld blanks available. Due to the handmade nature of the pens, each fountain pen we make will be similar, but not identical.
