Made from synthetic leather, a resistant and soft material. It’s practical and functional, with roll-up closing to hold and protect the pens during transportation.
The case has an adjustable closing strip, so you can carry other tools of your choice.
Each one of these pens is a versatile marking tool and a beautiful, handcrafted displayable object. Recycled metal cans are cut, hammered, and formed into the folded nib, then combined with a turned hardwood handle and a bit of thin-walled brass pipe. These are truly instruments for expressive writing and drawing. The line width varies with the angle of the pen to the paper. Each one is also a lesson in sustainability. These were quick sellers at CNW, and purchasers included both students and instructors. Each pen is unique. Click the item picture to see the available pens. The drop-down menu lists pens that are available (pens not listed in the menu have been sold).
This pen uses the Cora Nib, which was developed by Cora Pearl. This nib delivers hairline serifs and broad downstrokes for Roman and Versal variations.
