[Sold] Irene Adler, The Woman fountain pen


The Woman is how Sherlock Holmes referred to Irene Adler, as a sign of respect, as she managed to outwit and outmanoeuvre him. Hanna’s painting and drawing on this fountain pen reflects both the original story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (interesting, Irene Adler appeared in only one of the Sherlock stories) and the BBC series. Hence her design includes both the London Eye, which obviously was not around in Sir Arthur’s time, and a scene on the barrel where Irene is in rather a domanitrix pose as she subdues Sherlock.

This pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted and zendoodled by Hanna then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polished, and buffed. It has a bronze cap band, section ring, and bronze logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a shimmery deep purple section. The pen comes with a steel Jowo #6 nib, though in this special case we can offer an 18kt gold option (in fine only).

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art, hence no-one else will ever own an identical pen.


Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.

The Jabulani model


This is a gently curvaceous model, with a relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″)  grip section. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is ever-so-slightly rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s elegance.
