This little one-dip wonder is indeed a wonder! What a clever idea! I will be using one all the time now.
The second I saw the video of Gemma using this nifty little tool, I knew I needed to try it. I used it literally the second it arrived (beautifully packaged) through my door and all I can say is WHERE HAS THIS BEEN MY WHOLE LIFE. Or at least the 3 years I’ve been doing calligraphy.. it slots into any nib super easily and oh my goodness does it deliver. I normally have to dip my nib every few words but this thing lets me write sentence after sentence. I expected it to maybe let me write two to three long words but it’s more like 22 words. Yes I counted. I could not be happier or more in awe, and I can’t wait to come back and buy more tools from Tom’s miraculous studio. Thank you so much.
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!
It really works!!! If you use a nib pen then these are a must.
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.
