We're taking a short break
Hi from James Finniss,
I wanted to let you know that we have made the hard decision to close Pensive Pens for a few months while I undergo a spinal fusion surgical procedure. The surgery (we hope) will make it much easier for me to navigate the pen factory and be able to dedicate more time and energy to new designs and growth in the future but I'll need some time off for a proper recovery and so it is with regret that we are closing the store for a short time.
I have great plans for new designs and some new models of existing designs (Titanium Serendipity, etc!) and am very much looking forward to returning to pen manufacturing as quickly as possible!
Don't worry, Any orders already placed will be shipped immediately but we won't be closely monitoring email, i'll check in from time to time when possible over this period.
Thank you all so much for your support. See you again soon!
Manufactured since 1918 by the Namiki Manufacturing company (now Pilot), Iroshizuku inks are among the finest in the world.
Translated as (Iro) coloured (Shizuku) Droplet, these vibrant inks have been created to represent the beautiful natural scenery and plants of Japan.
Serendipity - Hybrid Pen
Made in Australia, Serendipity - the Hybrid Pen takes the form of a traditional dip pen but it has been engineered to hold a modern fountain pen nib and feed. The large feed allows the pen to have a generous gulp of ink and with a single dip you can write or draw well over a page!
This type of pen is absolutely ideal for artists or calligraphers who like to change colours often. A quick swish in a glass of water is all that is required to clean the pen ready for another colour which also makes it perfect for those who like to test out new inks and make ink swatches.
