A little Ninja of a calligraphy tool...

So many pens are made from cheap materials that look good but don't stand the test of time... I wanted to make a pen that did both.  The Flourish straight pen is machined from Solid Aluminium using lathes conventionally used to make watch parts (the long-lasting bit, no plastic here). They're then dip dyed  lending them their own unique characteristics meaning your pen is truly yours (the good-looking bit).  I then fit them with Master Pen Maker Chris Yoke's stainless steel ferrule (not a speck of rust in sight!).

It's my hope that you'll be passing your pen down the generations, and that your grandchildren will get the same pleasure from using their Tom's Studio pen as you do.

Good to know & FAQs:

  • Every pen is machined from solid metals on a lathe used for making fine watch and aerospace grade components, so you can be sure your pen will write perfectly for years and years to come.

  • Measures 145mm x 10mm and weighs 22g.

  • Designed with the planet in mind. I’ve made sure that this pen is made from infinitely recyclable materials, such as stainless steel and aluminium, which are easily separated (no glue or un-recyclable plastics here).

  • Comes in a beautifully crafted gift box

  • Nibs are sold separately and you can find them here

  • I have a superb range of inks to compliment your pen and you can find them here
  • This pen has a slightly different finish to the Black Flourish Oblique pen and is more matte rather than a satin finish.

Why Tom's Studio

Values & Craftsmanship

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.

Creativity Tools

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.

Tried and Tested

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.

A Labour Of Love

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.
