Unique Handmade Fountain Pens

Luxury Fountain pens are unusual in this digital age, often created from acrylic, ebonite or other materials. As technology becomes more advanced, fewer people are interested in beautiful handmade pen and paper. Consequently, custom fountain pens are considered obsolete.

Custom made fountain pens are an excellent writing instrument with a long history. These are fascinating objects with their intricate designs and construction. Browse the largest online selection of fine writing instruments, all handcrafted.

A few of our favourite custom pens have pine cones or watch parts added to the resin for something special. We always try to push the limits of what we use. Nearly every quality handmade fountain pen for sale here has a posted cap, with a few exceptions. Matching sets are also possible on selected fountain pens. Please see each individual page.

What Are Hand Crafted Fountain Pens?

Each handcrafted fountain pen is individually designed from scratch and crafted by a skilled craftsman. These plated gold nib pens are not mass-produced, unlike big pen brands. The barrel can be shaped into the desired form and are so exceptional that it is immortalized in art. The concept of making and owning one in limited quantity crosses the lines of functionality to ensure these bespoke fountain pens are truly rare.

Every pen has a medium nib, and all use a standard ink cartridge with piston converter pumps where specified. A selection of high-quality pen finishes is possible, chrome, gunmetal and gold platings. Every item has a presentation box and a variety of upgraded boxes in the accessories section.

What Is The Difference Between Calligraphy And An Artist Made Pen?

A calligraphy pen uses fountain pen ink; an artist made pen is one that a professional artist has created. Fountains produce uniform lines except for the initial downstroke, in which they produce thicker lines to create a more luxurious impression. Calligraphy pens start with thin horizontal strokes (downstrokes) that make space between letters and end with tasseling rims and brushes (valleys) to serifs on top.
