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.

This is absolutely what...

This is absolutely what I was looking for! A beautiful, unique writing utensil with good weight and durability. No parts to change out. Easy clean up. Switching between inks is a breeze! I love to doodle, but this pen is encouraging me to write and doodle with passion again. The pen was a little scratchy at first, but after working out the ink ratio and doodling while rotating the pen, the sharpness of the glass on paper became more pleasing to the ear and softer through the motions... I guess I used the pen so much that I buffed the roughness out.
I have no idea how long this pen will last me, but if and when I decide to buy another, it will be a J. Herbin Glass Dip Pen!
