A special treat.
I am a beginner so I am just getting used to all the materials. This was a treat to myself! Beautifully packaged, elegant, thoughtful instructions which were very helpful. The pen feels special. Love it.
I am thrilled that I now have an oblique holder in which I can use my Hunt 102 crowquill!!! And I know that when I want to switch nibs it will accommodate whatever size I want to use. Holder feels good in my hand too.
My items arrived the day after they were shipped. The packaging is insane! Not only is it plastic free, but the quality of Tom’s packaging and the design is a work of art itself. It’s like getting a box full of jewellery. Everything is presented with so much love and care! All of the products are stunning. They are well made and will honestly last a lifetime! The flourish is beautiful. It has a good weight, it’s comfortable to hold. It automatically places my hand in the right position. I’ve only tried it with the graphite lead so far and it’s honestly a game changer! The ability to adjust the angle of the lead or nib will make my calligraphy work flow much better, and it will help when I’m inking sketches. I’m excited to use it to create beautiful works of art! Thank you so much Tom! I love it! xx
Excellent oblique pen holder. Will

Pen with a difference
I first heard of Tom’s studio in a magazine and I so wanted one of his pens, but could not afford them, finally I got the chance to have one of his flourish pens. Basically I love it the colour, the weight and it writes beautifully. Thank you
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.
