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 Original Flourish straight pen is machined from Solid Aluminium using lathes conventionally used to make watch parts (the long-lasting bit, no plastic here). They have a silky matte black finish which sings quality and craft – it not only looks beautiful but is designed to be the best tool for the job. Each pen is also fitted with a 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.

Love the quality and the excellent service that came with it

Fantastic versatility!

As a left handed overwriter, I have struggled to find any pens that work for me. The ability to revolve the holder in a complete 360 has made it perfect!

It's a Wonderful Product

I would recommend this pen to anyone - it is absolutely fantastic. It arrived so quickly, fixes every problem I've had with other pens and there is nothing about it I don't like. It's amazing.

An Innovative Design

I think this is the most innovative design to come along in at least a century. It is the adjustability that sets this holder apart from any others, and makes it adaptable to the user instead of the user having to adapt to the holder.

It's superb! Love it!

I have a thing for adjustable oblique pens and I honestly didn't think I'd find another that I would like as much as my wooden adjustable obliques. But this one changed my mind! I'm only three years into my calligraphy journey and, unlike many of my peers, I am more appreciative of the nib holders without the chunkier shafts. This pen holder is more my comfort-level. I love the look and feel of it as well as the performance. The fact that it is adjustable is icing on the cake. Already one of my faves and I've only had it a few weeks!
