N30. Folded Ruling Pen
Folded Ruling Pen

Introduced at Letterforum in 1995, this innovative lettering tool has been popular ever since. Use them 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.

Thomas uses this fine-crafted, traditional ruling pen for expressive lettering. 5"overall length; nickel-plated tool steel alloy. Both Thomas and this ruling pen come from Germany. He has introduced the tool as a writing instrument at several conferences and workshops in the USA and Europe. This ruling pen was sold by HAFF as their number 629U. These are now coming from the manufacturer, a small family firm, which has given us more options for handles.

This ruling pen is now available in a range of handle materials. The Black Aladdinite has more heft than the Black Plastic (The writing part is identical in each.)

*Aladdinite is a sustainable manufactured material made using milk protein. It was invented in the early 20th century and was used for a wide variety of items (including jewelery) before the invention of plastic derived from petroleum. It is most commonly used now for buttons.

N208. Dreaming Dogs Ruling Pen
N208. Dreaming Dogs Ruling Pen.

Dreaming Dogs ruling pens are designed with the traditional components of the tools already found on the market, with additional new features.

The lightness of the tool and its balance were prioritized, resulting in a comfortable grip and allowing for both fluid and gestural strokes.

Dreaming Dogs ruling pens are crafted in stainless steel with elastic properties, a material that has excellent strength and durability and that does not rust. It is easy to clean and provides lightness, flexibility and accuracy in strokes.

The wooden pen handles are handmade. The assembly of these pens is entirely manual, with the refinement and finishing done one by one to get the perfect fit. Varnish layers waterproof the handle and make the pens more durable and easier to clean.

Aldus 2
Layla 4
Leeloo 5
Little Lie 3
Lollipop 6
Sofie 1
