N22. Ruling Pen

Julian Waters, Gottfried Pott, and many others are using ruling pens to produce expressive letters. This calligraphy ruling pen is designed specifically for lettering. You vary the line width by tilting the pen. Wood handle with brass collar & writing unit.

N30. Folded Ruling Pen
Folded Ruling Pen

Introduced at Letterforum in 1995, this innovative lettering tool has been popular ever since. Use it to produce tight "brush lettering" with a pen or for wild, fun, expressive lettering. These are the originals made by Matthew Coffin and highly praised by Carl Rohrs and Peter Thornton as superior to others that are available.

Peter Thornton has his students use our Polishing Paper (S107) to lightly abrade the outer and inner surfaces of the Folded Pen. This allows the ink to spread out on the pen instead of beading up.

You can also produce color-blended letters by touching ink from one pen to a second pen loaded with another color.

FP68. Pilot Parallel Pens Modified to New Sizes
FP68. New Parallel Pen Sizes (These sizes are not made by Pilot.)

Add these additional pens to your Parallel Pen collection:
1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4.5mm.

We have the 1.5mm cut down to 1.0mm, the 2.4 cut to 2mm, the 3.8 cut to 3mm and the 6mm cut to 4.5mm. (Pilot does not warrant these modified pens, but John Neal Bookseller does.)

The new 1mm (nominal) is the perfect size for addressing wedding invitations -- though the thick & thin contrast is less than with a dip pen. It is a bit larger than 1.0mm. (You can use the .5mm edge of the pen for fine lines.)

We also have a small selection of pens that were cut too small. Limited supply of 1.5mm, 1.75mm, 2.25mm, 2.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.15mm, 4.35mm

Each includes one red and one black cartridge and a cleaning bladder.

FP68-S Pilot Parallel Pen New Sizes Set of Four Pens is currently unavailable for ordering.
