(*PATENT PENDING)

Too many pens and their refills are disposable by design. Similar to printer ink cartridges, pen companies want you to buy into their format so that they can keep selling you replacement pens or refills over and over again.  It's good for their business, but it's bad for the planet and stifles creativity.

"It is brilliant: Beautiful, the perfect weight, a range of nibs, satiny ink. The drawing (almost) does its self."
David Downton - (one of the world’s leading fashion artists)

As a product designer and craftsman who loves using a variety of pens to create illustrations and designs, I had this very problem! Pens would sit in my drawer for years, either patiently waiting for that very specific refill, or I was just loathed to dispose of an otherwise fully functional pen that had run out of ink.

Having designed and handmade calligraphy and fountain pens for creative folks across the world full time for over 6 years, I decided it was time to apply my knowledge to the pen I used most of all and one of the biggest culprits when it came its disposable nature: the fineliner.

GOOD TO KNOW:

  • Choose between: Super Grippy Matt Black or Satin glass bead blasted Sage, Lilac, Ivy, or Rose-Gold
  • The Lumos Pro comes with a full set of 9 tips, but you can buy your favourite nib size or type in packs of 3 here: Lumos tips. 

    Fineliner: 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.5 0.8 1.0 Felt-Tip: Chisel, Bullet & Brush

  • The Lumos Pro weighs 23g and is 10mm in diameter 
  • A reusable cotton core reservoir for each tip holder, spares available here: Lumos reservoirs.
  • A sample bottle of Tom's Studio - Deep Black Ink (not waterproof). More colours are available here: Fountain pen ink as well as waterproof pigment inks . Calligraphy Inks are not compatible (find out more in FAQs below).

    Full FAQs can be found here

    What ink can I use?

    - All nibs will work with all but the most experimental fountain pen inks (think shimmer + iridescent). I've tried a LOT and I'm yet to find one that doesn't work well. I'd encourage you to experiment and find the inks that work best for you!

    Pigment Ink for fountain pens can be found here.

    Calligraphy Ink has an acrylic binder which will block the Pen

    What are the differences between the Duo and the Single Lumos?

    The Duo Lumos allows you to have two different pens in one body, allowing you to easily change between nibs and ink colours on either side.

    The Single Lumos has one tip and one ink reservoir which is double the Duo's reservoir size.

    What's the difference between the Lumos and other refillable technical pens? (E.g. Rotring Isograph and Copic Multiliner).

    As well as red and green, there are times when a more sensible set of colours are needed. This one holds lilac (surprisingly!) and blue.

    I like being able to have two colours in the same pen. As a teacher I use both red and green on a regular basis.
    My students told me this week that I have the coolest pens.

    Love this pen and ready to buy another!

    I received my new pen and ink and have been enjoying writing with it - so much so that I am looking forward to the purchase of another. I selected the full length version to ensure plenty of ink capacity and I prefer the longer length. It is not too heavy and my only concern is that it is slightly slippery so I do need a good grip. I look forward to the little 'grippers' being back in stock because I do believe they will compliment the appearance and improve function. I am using the 0.5 point and do find that it is somewhat larger than my other brand pens that are listed as 0.5 point but script is very legible. Overall very happy with this choice - it is very classy and love the intensity of ink color!

    What a pen!!!

    I’ve wanted a Lumos for a while now and it was even on my Christmas list, but unfortunately Santa didn’t bring it to me :( I decided to purchase one myself and I haven’t stopped using it! Such a lovely pen to hold and draw/write with!!!

    Things aren't always Black and White.

    Any ink colour anytime.  The Lumos is designed so that you can refill with any fountain pen ink (and even some pigment inks).  So there are no limits to your colour palette when creating your next masterpiece.

    Make it Yours

    We all have our favourite nib sizes and styles. Customising your Lumos to be your perfect writing, drawing or doodling companion couldn't be easier!

    Watch the how to:

    Tip, Top, Tips

    Japan is where the best technical pens are made.  I was never going to be able to design anything that came close to the precision and decades of perfectionism of a Japanese-made nib.  So I designed the Lumos around them, with 9 sizes and types you are sure to find the ones to perfectly suit your style. 

    Reduce, Reuse, Refill

    It's always seemed crazy to me to have to dispose of an otherwise amazing pen, just because it has run out of ink!  With it's interchangeable ink reservoir the Lumos allows you to easily refill with your ink colour of choice.  You'll also never have to buy another pen again! No more refills, No more waste

    Power Couple

    As a designer, I am always reaching for at least two pens to highlight or add details in different styles to my work.  Different pen styles offer different functions, whether that's accentuating detail in a drawing, changing between line weights, or just doodling for the fun of it I wanted to create a pen that you could use for a variety of tasks and that you could truly customise to the way you work.
