Petite Silk


Slim and petite, this silk pen is a flurry of turquoise and purple gossamer caught in a miniature whirlwind. Unscrewing the cap reveals the section which is the colour of the feathers on a peacock’s throat, perfectly offset by the polished steel of the Bock nib. This pen would make the kind of gift that would be used daily, and every time it would bring a smile to the person receiving it.

(Disclosure from Di: I love this pen so much I’m tempted to mark it as sold and keep it for myself. If you see that it is “out of stock” on our Shop page, it’s worth checking whether we can make you another one in a similar colour combination … or if this one has somehow been ‘mislaid’ on my desk …)

As far as we know, we are the only pen makers producing silk fountain pens. Each one is individually crafted, the silk is hand-painted and with the random patterns created by the fibres, no two pens are ever identical.

The Dainty Dafoe model


As the name suggests, this is a feminine, dainty pen. The nib end of the barrel curves in toward the section, which is tapered to follow the shape of the barrel. The gentle curves on both the cap and the barrel lead to a narrow waist in the middle.
