African Bushveld fountain pen

This fountain pen smoulders! It is reminiscent of the heat of a sunset in dry African bushveld … the tawny grass, embers from a campfire, the dark waters of a drinking hole as one waits in hushed silence for game to emerge to slake their thirst. Or the heat from metal being forged in a furnace … of molten copper, of iron, of gold.

We have made the one pen shown in the photographs, which will fit a Bock #6 nib, and have another three blanks available. These could be made to fit a Bock #6 or a Jowo #6. If you have a preference for one of the blanks, please say so in the comments when you place your order.


Nib: Bock #6. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad in the check-out. Polished steel and bi-color (i.e. steel & gold) are both available. (Please DM me if you need an Extra Fine.)
