[Available] Mythic Cobras hand-painted fountain pen


Cobras are both revered and feared, and with good reason. Kseniia Nel has painted Mythic Cobras in greens and golds, with serious attitude. These serpents are no ordinary snakes and must surely have supernatural powers. Just look at those eyes! (Or perhaps avoid looking into them as one might just become entranced, as happened to Mowgli in Jungle Book when he made the mistake of looking into Kaa’s eyes!)

These Mythic Serpents have flame-red tongues, pale green striped underbellies and Kseniia has painted them against a black and silver-gold background that looks like sliced black marble. We have added a grass green section, silver cap band and section ring and a silver and bronze logo medallion in the cap finial.

Kseniia has would be happy to consider requests for commissioned paintings on our fountain pens. If you would like to discuss a theme, please email us via our website.

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. 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.
