SPOKEN FOR – Unique fountain pen: Ghost’s Breath

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). This pen went one step further: we made a set of Ghost’s Breath blanks – each one slightly different from the next – however the early stages of learning to make custom pens involved a lot of trial and error. As a result only one blank made it through the learning curve, and this is the pen that survived. Who knows, perhaps one day it will become a collector’s item?
