Pointed Quills (pack of 5)

Item Code: N213


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-appropriate gall ink, try McCaffery's Black or Old World.

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

Unusual Quill Pens
Nov 18, 2022  |  By Jennifer Stout
The items arrived quickly and were packaged well. I like that they're unusual, not what you regularly see in quill pens. I teach and love to have historical items to show the kids. Thank you very much.
