[Sold] Ironbeard Viking Clan painted fountain pen


The images on this pen were inspired by the Vikings, the Scandinavian seafaring warriors who raided and colonised wide areas of Europe from the 9th to the 11th century. Their burning, pillaging and killing earned them the name vikingr, meaning pirate. Ironbeard was the name of a clan of Vikings who were known for the unyielding strength of their clan … as well as their impressive beards! As always, Hanna Farmer has done a huge amount of research into the subject so as to incorporate accurate elements from Viking history and mythology. For example, she has painted Thor’s Hammer, Mjölnir; Yggdrasil, the Norse Tree of Life; The Helm of Awe, Ægishjálmur, (the multi-pronged pattern on the cap), a symbol which they often inscribed on to their foreheads or weapons as they believed it would make them invincible; and Vegvisir, the Runic Compass. Then there are dragons, the distinctive Viking ships, runes and symbols, and Erik the Red with his magnificent beard.

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 section ring, cap band and a logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a grip section in a custom-made deep blue with a pearlescent shimmer.

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.
