Luxe Silk fountain pen


[Update: only one pen blank left – still available]

This is one of those bitter-sweet finds. We recently discovered a set of four silk and resin blanks that I had made when we had just started turning (kit) pens. It is one of the most beautiful combinations we’ve ever created, however, as I was not writing down the recipes at that stage, there is no guarantee that I will ever be able to make it again. The silk is hand-painted and some of the random patterns look like soft-focus Impressionist flowers.

We have made three pens so far, and one of the other blanks is currently available and could be made into custom pens. If you would like to have one made, please have a look at the pens we have produced in the past and let us know via email which shape most appeals to you. We can make yours to fit either a Jowo #6 or a Bock #6 nib.

This particular pen is slightly shorter and slimmer than our usual models and will suit someone with delicate hands. It has a 13 mm cap thread and at its narrowest point, the grip section is only 10.5 mm wide.
