New Pen Model — the Epic!
The Epic is pretty much exactly what I think of when I envision fountain pens, and this model started out as a pen I made just for myself this weekend, and I liked it so much, I decided to make it part of the regular offering. I rarely make pens for myself, and this is the first one in at least a year and a half.
Like its literary namesake, the Epic is big and bold. Long, clean lines create a pen that is strong and grand without being ostentatious. The barrel expands ever so slightly toward the end before making a sharp taper downward. Though similar to the expanding barrel on the Balladeer, the Epic’s barrel is much slimmer, with only a slight swell at the widest point of diameter. This design helps to keep the pen from slipping down in the hand. Check out the Epic page for more images.
The new custom clips in Bronze and Brass are now available in both Classic and Modern styles, joining the Sterling Silver clips for a choice of colors to suit your pen material. These clips are hand cast using the lost wax method and are solid, not plated! My favorite is the Bronze. I love the patina it develops over time, adding unique character to a pen. These custom clips are available as an upgrade option to the standard clip offerings. See the new Clips page for details.
As mentioned above, there’s a new page just for Clips. Many customers have asked for a page with pictures of all the clips to choose from, so here it is! I’ve included both front and side angle views.
I’ve also updated the Pen Model Dimensions Chart to reflect the full Scriptorium model lineup to date.
That’s it for now. I hope to have a really cool announcement for you in a couple of weeks! 🙂
