It does a great job of holding so much ink. I can write so much more with just one dip. Great idea.
The One Dip Wonder is a marvellous invention that any and every calligrapher should posses in their arsenal of materials. Easy to use, classy and so useful that I cannot imagine my life without it now that I have tried it!
this works really well and fits nicely into the nib but the magnet does come loose and it is tiny which meant I lost one! Take lots of care to not lose the magnet which attaches it to the nib and it is an excellent device.
This product does exactly what it says it will do. Makes practicing calligraphy so much easier. A must have item!
This teeny tiny piece of spring + magnet is a modern day miracle ...it truly does what it (and many other reviewers) says...as long as you position it properly! So glad I ignored my usual doubting Thomas of a brain and not only bought one but came back for three more...If, like I did, you're "should I, shouldn't I " my response is - yes, you should!
Tom still uses the same design principles as the very first pen he made for his wife. It's important to him to create products that his customers will cherish for the rest of their lives. It's why each every one of my products has a lifetime guarantee.

Tools of the past were made by master craftspeople that cared passionately about their craft and the experience of the people using their products. We seem to have lost the 'soul' of these tools in the age of mass production. It's my mission to bring the creative soul back to the tools we use every day.

Seeing his calligrapher wife, Gemma Milly, using a mass-produced calligraphy pen inspired Tom to craft a collection of pens that matched the high quality of her work. Using a 60-year-old engineering lathe, he now makes pens for some of the world’s most celebrated calligraphers and stationery brands.

From the first pen I made for my wife to the pens I now make for my customers around the world. I put the same care and attention into each and every pen. I love what I do and hope that it shows in the finished product.
