Enjoy hand blown glass pens in the tradition of 16th century Venice. Each pen is expertly made and is an individual work of art. The fine glass pens feature a frosted glass handle and tips that are delicately twisted in a light spiral to hold the maximum amount of ink. Each pen measures 5.5 inches long.

Glass pens are a romantic and beautiful writing instrument that will enhance your writing experience. They have a nice flow and are the only instrument that truly gives you an honest and direct experience with your ink. That is why glass pens are ideal for testing new ink colors. They write elegantly yet easily rinse clean with water, so you can quickly switch between different inks colors without having to refill a fountain pen. As long as you have a bottle of ink handy, these pens are ready to capture your thoughts anytime. When dipped, a glass pen can write multiple sentences before needing to be re-dipped.

How to use your glass pen:
1. Dip the pen slightly in an ink bottle. Tip should be only partially submerged to avoid ink blots.
2. Glide tip against bottle opening to drain excess ink. When ink no longer drips down from the nib it is ready to write with.
3. Use your glass pen to write notes, letters, wedding invitations, etc. (you may want to practice a bit first to get a feel for your pen). Re-dip in ink as necessary.

I bought this for testing fountain pen ink samples. There's a knack to learning how to angle and rotate this pen and load it with ink, but if you're having trouble with ink flow, or with getting more than a sentence out of it, it might not be the fault of the pen or how you're using it--it might be the ink. I'm finding that some inks just will not work at all with this type of pen. Not surprisingly, since it's a J. Herbin pen, the J. Herbin Perle Noire ink writes smoothly and for a full paragraph from a single thorough dip. So far, Diamine Poppy Red ink flows well with it too (but not Registrar's Blue-Black, which won't even start). The Noodler's inks vary: Widowmaker was not completely hopeless, some of the others would give me a few words, but the V-Mail inks would not play with this pen at all. The Noodler's inks left particles in this pens' spiralling grooves.

Other than that, it's slender and a little short, but has a solid, comfortable weight. Mine is more pale orange than deep amber, but it's such an attractive pen, I don't mind. With the right ink, it's inspiring to write with something this lovely. Makes me feel classy, ya'know?

Just got this pen a few days ago. It's comfortable to write with when testing ink samples, and I like the weight of it (being all glass it's similar in heft to an all-metal pen). It does seem to have issues with Noodler's inks, but works perfectly well with the Peikan and Sheaffer inks that I've tried.

It's a fine pen and I'm very happy with it as an inexpensive way of testing inks.

It's hard for me to give this pen 1 star because it is my first glass dip pen, however straight out of the box, it just doesn't want to write. I don't know what to do with it. I've read online that sanding it down will help. Maybe I'm using the wrong ink? I bought a bottle of the J. Herbin Pearlescent Royal Blue ink for dip pens, but it's finicky. Sometimes it will write all of 2 letters and sometimes it doesn't want to write at all.
