I enjoy dip pens & watercolours, though I dislike plastic pens which personally I cannot hold. They slip, slide & ultimately lead to smudges etc, as do some wooden versions with a varnish coating (which before now I have sanded off). I used wooden pens many years ago, but until now had seen nothing I liked the look of.
The products looked exactly what I needed. I bought one to try with a cork collar, as after a while my fingers start to get a little slippy & I thought the cork would help with this. It is superb. Secure enough to hold nicely, no slipping here at all & no sanding to do either. Your choice of nibs are easily installed & securely held. I do like the cork pen, nicely balanced, but with the extra benefit of a non slip surface for your fingers to grip! (Posted on 07/09/2016)
