This new series of glass dip pens came about from a request. I had a customer that wanted a pen that was mostly clear glass, and I hadn't realized that all of my pens were mostly colored glass.
I love working with colors, but how could I have color, but have the pen mostly clear glass? Well you can see what I came up with.
These are handmade glass dip pens in a series so the color, pattern, and size will vary a bit. I try to keep the colors as close to the picture as possible. The glass nibs have eight channels (there are more or less channels in the italic nibs depending on the size) for the ink to fill, so you are able to write for quite a long time before needing to dip it again. The pens are made with borosilicate glass. Both the body and nib.
Dimensions: Approximately 12.5cm long
Grip: Approximately 13mm diameter
These pens are made when they are ordered, so please let us know what size nib you would like, fine, medium, and bold are not specific. Please let me know how thick of a line you want in mm. If not expect the pen to have the size below.
Nib general sizes if not specified:
Straight Nib: approx 0.6-0.3mm line
PLEASE leave me a note if you want a different size nib and the size in mm.
Breakages: If you break the nib of the pen in anyway for any reason please feel free to send it back to me to be repaired for no charge. You only need to pay for the shipping cost. And yes this is anytime you break the nib. THIS ONLY APPLIES TO THE NIB. If you need to have to rest of the pen repaired please contact me and we can work out the cost of a repair.
