Writing Tools


FP132. Radius-cut Parallel Pen (Modified)
FP132. Radius-cut Parallel Pen
(Pilot does not make this pen.)

This pen begins life as a Pilot Parallel Pen. Once our penmaker has worked his magic, the pen is cut to a radius (curved) shape. This allows the pressure on the stroke to affect the ink flow. Great for experimenting and gestural work. The pen works better on paper with a bit of tooth.
(Pilot does not warrant this modified pen, but we do!)

Select size: 1.5mm, 2.4mm, 3.8mm, 6.0mm.

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.

N213. Pointed Quills (pack of 5)
N213. Pointed Quills (variety 5 pack).

These quill pens have been cured and cut for regular handwriting and are great for school classroom study, historical reenactment, and those wanting to write or draw with a quill. The staff and barbs have been trimmed, as was standard practice when quills were widely used. This makes for a functional writing tool (but is less showy than the full-feather quill pen props that appear in movies.)

For period appropiate gall ink, try McCaffery's Black or Old World.

Uncut quills and quills cut for broad-edge calligraphy (Italic, Uncial, Blackletter, etc.) are also available.

M146. Molotow Liquid Chrome Marker
M146. Molotow Liquid Chrome Marker

This marker lays an incredible line of liquid chrome. The bullet tip is sturdy enough to work on a myriad of surfaces, rough and smooth. It creates a beautiful chrome, mirror-like finish on glass and mirrors. It also works well on white paper! Even though it is alcohol-based, there is minimal odor. Clean up is a breeze with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer. The ink becomes water-resistant after 24 hours. Available in 3 bullet-tip sizes: 1mm, 2mm, or 4mm.

FP118-S3. Pilot Plumix Set of 3 Pens
Pilot Plumix Set of 3 Pens. One each of three different barrel colors: Black (Dark Grey), Light Blue, and Purple.

An inexpensive -- but good -- calligraphy cartridge (fountain) pen. Tip is between .75mm & 1mm (similar in size to the Manuscript Fine or the Pentel Italic 0.8 Marker). It's not billed as a calligraphy pen, but that's what it is. There is no ball on the bottom of the nib, so you get thicks and thins. Barrel is translucent with a clear grip area, so it is easy to see when you are low on ink.

Customer reviews of the pen.

Quills are very light, very flexible, and deliver a wide variety of media easily -- thick gesso, creamy gouache or thin ink.
See S265. Quill Knife for a knife specially shaped for cutting quills.
