Glass Dip Pen
Our First Glass Dip Pen
When someone gave us the idea of producing a glass dip pen we sat up and gave it some thought.
After having spent quite some time in refining this item , here is our glass dip pen.
The nib is blue glass and the holder is crafted from oak. The holder is approx. 9 inches in length and the glass nib is just over 1.25 inches in length. As with our other dip pen we have given the holder a ‘ waist ‘, we feel that this makes it easier to hold and control.
When writing with the glass dip pen there is no need for any pressure to placed on the pen as the glass nib just glides across the paper.
We fully understand that you will have to dip the glass pen into the ink pot quite often in order to refill the glass nib and only by using it will you find the pens ‘ sweet spot ‘ but when you do it is a pleasure to write with.
The beauty of our crafted pen is that should you accidently break the glass nib a replacement glass nib can easily be inserted and you can continue using the holder.
You glass nib will come in its own metal box for safekeeping whilst the holder itself will be wrapped securely in order to save any damage being caused to it.
