Discover the charm of simpler times with this traditional dip pen. Feather quills were the writing instrument of choice for well over a thousand years, until the early 19th century saw the arrival of affordable mass-produced metal nibs. This handmade dip pen makes the best of old and new, featuring a metal 'flex nib' that's suitable for both calligraphy and everyday use. An included ink stand allows to you pause for thought between your lines of beautifully-crafted script.
Choose from a variety of beautiful feathers, including the highly sought golden pheasant to the quirky lady Amherst and majestic peacock. How about writing your Hogwarts acceptance letter with the classic goose quill?
Our feathers are hand sorted for quality. A feather shaft to this dip pen invokes a little old-world charm, whilst the selection of steel nibs allow you to explore a complete range of lettering styles. Handmade and beautifully presented in a gift box with a complete range of nibs, this set would also make a gorgeous gift.
Ethically Sourced and Cruelty-Free:
Animal welfare is highly important to us. Working with the most reputable European Processors governed by EU Law, we can be assured strict controls and checks are in place providing traceability and accountability.
Our ethically sourced feather comes from birds that have been raised and treated with decency. To be considered ethical, live plucking and force-feeding is prohibited. With many certifications, birds must also be afforded the Five Freedoms regarding animal welfare: freedom from hunger, thirst, discomfort, pain, injury, disease and fear, in addition to freedom to express normal animal behaviours.
Our feathers are either naturally moulted, or a by-product of raising geese and ducks for the food industry. In the latter case, even if we completely stopped using feathers today, goose and duck farming would continue, but the down and feathers would just end up as waste. Instead, the feather is cleaned, sanitised and recycled for making our beautiful pens.
Although our feathers are hand-picked for quality, please bear in mind that they are natural feathers, so please expect the odd pattern and size variation.
