A beautiful, handmade and hand-turned dip pen, made by a British craftsman from offcuts that would otherwise be thrown away. No two of these are the same shade or shape, and each demonstrates the lovely, unique qualities of the wood.

 

This particular pen is made from a mid-tone wood and is 13cm long and approx 1.3cm wide at the top. It has a slight swell near the tip for easier grip and has been varnished lightly. 

 

This is the type of pen I draw with and can be used with most nibs.

 

The nibs provided are Nikko G Zebra Comic nibs - used for manga drawing in Japan, I first used one of these when I got back from the country and haven't looked back since. With a medium flexibility, these nibs are capable of creating thick, dark lines, or light, delicate ones depending on the way you use them. I use them for all of my drawing work, though they can be a bit tricky for calligraphy.

 

It will be shipped in a recycled cardboard gift box.
