Bloom - Straight Calligraphy Pen - Peony

Let your Calligraphy Bloom

A beautiful and balanced calligraphy pen designed to make your work blossom.

6 years of designing and handmaking calligraphy pens have led me to create 'The Bloom'.  It's my most versatile, balanced and beautiful calligraphy pen to date.

Blooming Clever!

Just like my Flourish range, the Bloom's unique Universal Flange makes changing and holding nibs, big or small, an absolute breeze. Simply tighten or loosen the screw and pop your nib of choice in until you have a perfectly snug fit.  Probably one of the most important features is the ability to adjust the angle of the nib.  As no calligrapher holds their pen in exactly the same way, this feature allows you to achieve the perfect amount of pressure on the page without the dreaded snag!

Beauty is in the eye of the nib holder.

With it's organic compound curves, the body of the pen is as beautiful as it is functional. It's the perfect cross between my Carrot and original Flourish pen, with just the right amount of grip whilst feeling secure and balanced in the hand.

The solid brass tail moves the centre of gravity to the centre of the pen so that you have full control and lightness of touch on your upstrokes.

Secret Nib Compartment.

Nib tins, who needs 'em.  Your Bloom conceals up to 3 nibs, so you can easily take your favourites with you wherever you go.

    Work of art

    It looks and feels beautiful. I love that you can store extra nibs in the belly of the pen.

    The oblique Bloom

    It's very well balanced in the hand and writes far smoother than any of my previous dip pens. I plan on purchasing the straight Bloom in the next couple months. I would highly recommend the Bloom to anyone using a dip pen.

    Bloom - Oblique Calligraphy Pen - Bluebell.

    As a newbie calligrapher, I have tried a few oblique pens, but the angle of the pen has always been an issue. However, since buying the Bloom - Oblique Calligraphy Pen my handwriting has improved beyond anything I could have imagined. Being able to set the angle to suit is ingenious. I also like the weight of the pen too, which sits very comfortably in the had. Then there’s the secret barrel for storing a replacement nib too - again ingenious!
    The only concern I now have, is that I’m going to be spending more money with Tom’s Studio as I quite fancy the fountain pen to go with my other ones.
