[Currently available] Whales hand-painted fountain pen


We are lucky enough to live close by to Hermanus, one of the best whale watching sites in the world, and until recently Carla lived right in Hermanus. She has spent many happy hours viewing whales who come close in shore to mate and later to give birth to their young. Carla has a deep love of the sea, hence this is the next in her Marine series, and here she shows whales breaching, spy-hopping, and turning pirouettes under water.

We have added turquoisey-blue grip section, an engraved nib, our logo medallion in silver, and a silver cap band and silver section ring.

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.
