N148. Tim's Folded Pen
N148 Tim's Pen.

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 at left to see the available pens. The drop-down menu lists pens that are available (pens not listed in the menu have been sold).

Nib Styles:
Argentine: This nib has a deeper arc and a flat section toward tip. Good for dramatic thick and thin effects.
Dagger: This nib looks like a knife blade. On its tip, it makes fine lines. Its main function is to produce broad, wet strokes with its flat side.
Mini Radius: An elongated version of the Radius nib, this nib is useful for smaller, more delicate marks.
Radius: The standard nib, the tip produces thin lines. Rotated down onto the arc, it produces ever wider marks.
