Made by an Artists, for other Artists: derived from a history of artistic experience and a tradition of quality creations to provide a tool of highly portable and functional format, convenience, practical application, and lasting value.

Included in this set:

One Basic Calligraphy Dip Pen Set consisting of 40 different nibs, one simple, wooden dip pen (painted black), & one “Book of Nib” enclosure (case) - pictured.

Dimensions: 8.3 inches long (21cm) x 5.125 inches deep (13cm) by 1.125 inches thick (2.86cm) x approximately 10.7 ounces (300 grams).

The case is composed of the same caliber of premium, heavy-duty board used in the leaves of standard hardback books, with a vintage image printed on a heavy gauge fabric which has been uniformly and permanently adhered to the underlying boards. The outer case includes metal corner protectors, and it has been sealed in a handcrafted varnish (a traditional decoupage formulation), and finished with a museum grade wax (to aid in moisture resistance and resistance to dust/dirt.) It has a magnetic closure mechanism: half of which is embedded within the upper lid, and the other half residing in the front and center of the frame.

The inner case includes a colored card stock that has been permanently adhered to the frame of the case, thoroughly imbued/saturated with natural lacquer and waxed; “nib boards” consisting of military grade, 1000D Nylon Cordura (black) that is adhered to boards which have been hand woven with a commercial grade elastic banding (black), and then permanently glued to the case. The Cordura has been sewn to the board along all edges to prevent unraveling, and to further secure the elastic bands. *All of the glues are a commercial grade resin that is designed to increase in strength with age.

The nibs in this set include both newly made and antique nibs in new, unused, and mint to near-mint condition.

Shipping: This item is in stock and will be shipped within one to two business days of your purchase. All of my items are shipped via USPS priority domestic service within the USA, and via USPS standard international service for non-domestic/non-USA orders. Some expedited services may be available upon prior inquiry – please let me know if you need special services prior to placing your order to ensure that they are available for your needs. I offer a flat shipping rate that is usually very close to or lower than the actual shipping cost, but I am always happy to combine shipping costs for multiple items, and I do issue refunds to adjust your shipping cost to reflect the actual cost for any greater than anticipated variances in your favor that may occur when purchasing the actual postage; it is not my intention or desire to make additional profits from shipping charges,and I do not charge a handling fee. If your order is an international order, please ensure that you are familiar with any special or customs requirements or fees that may be specific to your delivery location/imposed by your country of residence; I will cover the basic customs fees and requirements imposed by the USA to ship my products abroad, but you will be responsible for any additional fees or tariffs that may be imposed upon your order by your own country or by its authorized agents. *All items that I ship are insured against loss or damage during the shipping process for the original cost of the purchased item, at no additional charge.

About my pens: From the very first pen that I turned, my pens have been individually numbered in sequence as they have been completed; all the pens I've shipped have included signed certification/documentation bearing their unique serial number, and other details specific to each individual pen from my lathe (since 2015, these certificates have included photo documentation as well). No two pens I've made are ever exactly alike since they are individually turned (not mass produced), and since I've never used any fixed templates or exact measurements in the turning process - the design of each pen occurs organically on the lathe as the wood or woods reveal as each layer is peeled away - and subject to my moods, thoughts joggling around inside my head, and my particular perspective at the time that I sit at my lathe to work on a project. This all adds up to a unique and original pen creation every single time, and it is one that can never be exactly matched or reproduced by anyone.

Quality Note: The materials and workmanship of each item that I list has been thoroughly screened to ensure that your purchase is free from problems or defects.
