Black Flourish Curve-Oblique....Yes!
I am falling in love with the oblique pen more and more each day. I found the videos very helpful for properly installing the nib and adjusting the ******. I was using a thicker pen previous to this, which was causing discomfort with my hand. I am noticing that while using the oblique pen, the pain is lessening! I can't recommend the product enough. Plus, it arrives in such a lovely cardboard case that I will continue to store it in. Thank you!
I feel as if my work has only grown in high quality because of this tool. I feel as if this tool has allowed me to create more beautifully than I ever have before. This is a prized possession, a tool I will gift to my future generations if they have the spark for calligraphy. Thank you, Tom, for this incredible gift!
Really enjoyed writing with this pen holder. It is an investment piece but helped me, due to how easy it is to change the nibs and keep them in one place so you can continue your flow.
Beautiful Craftsmanship and Impeccable Customer Service
I am IN LOVE with the beautiful Flourish Curve Oblique in shell pink to sky blue ombre from @tomsstudio! I highly recommend @tomsstudio for the beautiful craftsmanship and fine details evident in his products. The new flourish curve oblique has exceeded all expectations, not only in the feel of the pen, but the beautiful hand-dipped colors, too! I am impressed with the impeccable customer service as @gemmamilly was quick to respond to emails! Don't fret about waiting too long because this order came in less than two days from the UK to NY (USA)!! I look forward to writing with this beautiful work of art and I know this is not my last purchase with Tom's Studio.
A dream to write with
It is delightful to be able to swap out nibs without changing the holder... And it sits so comfortably in my hand. On my other pens, I am always changing my grip around the ******. I can't explain it, but I know it is lovely :blush::heart:️:lower_left_fountain::book: 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.
