I’ve fallen in love with so many of Tom’s amazing pieces of craftsmanship and was planning on buying the spin dish when buying my next pen. However I spotted the patinated verdi-gris finish and instantly knew I had to have it, and wow it’s so beautiful! Knowing the spin dish is completely handmade makes you appreciate it even more. It’s the perfect accessory next to my teal pen holder. Calligraphy accessories I’ll treasure for many years to come.
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.
