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 7.5 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.

Lovely pen. I received one as a gift and was surprised and pleased when I used it the first time. I had never tried a dip pen of this quality before and was amazed at the beautiful lines and strokes that can be made with this pen. I am primarily a watercolorist so adding this as a source of texture and variety to my paintings was a real bonus. Of course, it is also going to be my pen of choice for greeting cards etc. I can just imagine what a person studying calligraphy could do with this pen.

Love the pen - very good heft in hand and beautiful colors. The only thing I don't enjoy is the thickness of the nib. It's rather thick and if you don't get the ink dipped just right it bleeds a lot when you first start writing with it. I was hoping for sometime more fine tipped. The product description doesn't really indicate how thick the actual writing tip is. I would say it's at least a medium if not large tip. If you like large tipped pens you will love this one. It's beautiful. I'll probably give this as a gift!
