Unique fountain pen : Petite silk pen

Slim and petite, this silk pen is a flurry of turquoise and purple gossamer caught in a miniature whirlwind. Unscrewing the cap reveals the section which is the colour of the feathers on a peacock’s throat, perfectly offset by the polished steel of the Bock nib. This pen would make the kind of gift that would be used daily, and every time it would bring a smile to the person receiving it.

(Disclosure from Di: I love this pen so much I’m tempted to mark it as sold and keep it for myself. If you see that it is “out of stock” on our Shop page, it’s worth checking whether we can make you another one in a similar colour combination … or if this one has somehow been ‘mislaid’ on my desk …)

As far as we know, we are the only pen makers producing silk fountain pens. Each one is individually crafted, the silk is hand-painted and with the random patterns created by the fibres, no two pens are ever identical.

Nib: Bock #6 (please select Fine, Medium or Broad in the check-out. Polished steel is standard; Bicolour (i.e. gold & steel) is also available)

Refill type: Standard international fountain pen converter (supplied) or ink cartridge.

Dimensions: Total length (closed): 140 mm (5.5″). Length (pen only, no cap): 130 mm (5″). Diameter at widest point (excl. cap): 12 mm (± 1/2″). Cap thread: 12 mm (±1/2″).



Within South Africa, we offer a flat rate of R125 for couriering smaller items.
