Unique fountain pen: Ghost’s Breath

Update: We have made more of the Ghost’s Breath pen blanks. You could choose to have one made in the same shape as the one shown in the photographs and with the specifications listed below, or you could order a custom pen. If you would like a custom pen, please send us a message to tell us what you have in mind.

In South Africa we have rather a special name for candy floss or cotton candy: spookasem. That translates into ghost’s breath. This Unique fountain pen has the spectral, ethereal feel of a ghost blowing a kiss. A fun ghost, not a baddie. One that rolls around with kittens in balls of soft wool, and splashes the dawn clouds with watercolours.

We call our fountain pens Unique when we make everything from scratch (with the exception of the nib and ink feed). No two of our blanks will ever be identical, and these pen blanks are particularly special as we incorporated wood shavings from a hand-built canoe that Dave made into the resin.

Here is the original Ghost’s Breath pen which @clemdionglay kindly reviewed for us on their blog Rants of the Archer.
