New Nib Offerings

Ready for some fancy writing?

Secretary of De Flex Nib

Scriptorium Pens is delighted to offer some fun new nib styles for our customers.  First is the fabulous Secretary of De Flex Steel Nibs by Kirk Speer. Customers are always asking for flex nibs, and now they can get them!  These nibs have amazing flex, so much so that it’s hard to believe they are steel and not gold.

Next are the amazing Stacked Nib styles from Monty Winnfield. We offer the full range of their unique nibs.  These nibs take “stacked” to a whole new level.  Visit the Monty Winnfield website for more details.

The Cobra Nib – one of six different stacked nib styles from Monty Winnfield. All Monty Winnfield nibs will have the Scriptorium shield logo engraved on them.

Any of these wonderful new nibs are available now for ordering. If you already have a pen on order and wish to add or change to one of these offerings, just send me an email: renee@scriptoriumpens.com

Fraud Alert

FRAUD ALERT

It has come to my attention that a website which has no actual connection whatsoever to Scriptorium Pens, LLC,®  is falsely claiming to make and sell custom Scriptorium Pens®.  These individuals have also falsely claimed to make and sell other prominent custom pen makers’ products.

If you see or suspect a fraud website or scam, proceed with caution.

The only place to order a custom Scriptorium Pen® or a stock Scriptorium Pen® is directly through me (Scriptorium Pens, LLC®)  or through my established websites on Facebook, Instagram, etc.

Scriptorium Pen Sleeves

 

Following numerous customer requests, Scriptorium Pen Sleeves are now available! Custom made by Rickshaw Bags of San Francisco, these sleeves feature the Scriptorium Pens logo in white on a black cover, and have a super soft, plush lining inside to protect your pens. These can be ordered separately or with a pen order, and are $15 each.

Nibs and Clips and Woods, oh my!

Scriptorium Pens has had a busy, busy summer, not only making pens but also designing new clips and pen prototypes. As we head into the Fall season, I wanted to give you some news and updates on our expanded offerings.

Bock #8 Nibs are now available for Large and Oversized pens!

Those of you who have mourned the end of production of the large JoWo #8 nibs now have another option — Scriptorium Pens is offering Bock #8 Nibs in Titanium and 18k Gold for large and oversized pens. Previously, I had not offered these nibs because I was not satisfied with the fit of my hand-tapped sections for this popular brand. With no more JoWo #8s for my customers, I reached out to a friend with a wonderful CNC machine to make the sections to fit precisely.  Many customers have already asked for these nibs in their current orders. If you already have an order in my queue, you can change it to a Bock #8 nib if you wish. Just send me an email: renee@scriptoriumpens.com  As with all Scriptorium Pens nibs, these will be smoothed and tuned for a medium wet ink flow and a wonderful writing experience by nibmeister Mark Bacas, Nib Grinder.

In addition, after many customer requests, I am once again offering to make grip sections for customer provided Pelikan nibs. I make the section, you provide the nib. I am not a Pelikan distributor and can not purchase a nib for you.

Details on nib options and pricing can be found on the Nibs & Sections page and the Price List page.

New Clips and Roll Stop

Scriptorium Pens has added two new cast clips and a new roll stop. The new Curvy Nouveau is based on the very popular Nouveau clip, but with some nice curves to it, and without the logo. The Minimalist clip is a totally new design, with a clean, smooth surface and profile. Both clips feature a slight upturn at the end to make them slide into a pocket more smoothly. The Open Bible roll stop is based on the Open Book roll stop, but with a wooden cross and crown of thorns on the pages. See the Clips page and the Roll Stops page for more details.

Slim Size Pens added to Lineup

After many requests for smaller pens, a Slim Size option has been added. These Slim pens are the smallest size possible to make and still hold a #6 nib and international converter. The base barrel size at the threads for these will be 11.8mm or .46” Also, a new model that will take full advantage of this Slim size is in the prototype stage. Here’s one of the prototypes:

Did you know that Scriptorium Pens makes wood pens? We do! With an increasing number of orders for custom wood pens, a new Wood Pens category has been added to the Models menu. Current pen models can be made with wood, or you can create your own design.

Consider the natural beauty of wood for your next custom pen! See the Wood Pens page for details.

Scriptorium Pens tuned by Mark Bacas, Nibgrinder

I am super excited to announce that all Scriptorium Pens nibs will be tuned and adjusted for a smooth writing experience by Mark Bacas, Nibmeister at Nibgrinder.com.  I’ve known Mark for several years now, and it just seemed like a natural fit to ask him to partner with Scriptorium Pens.  These super smooth and medium wet nibs will be going into all pens currently in the work queue, as well as all future pens.  And the best part is that it won’t cost customers a penny.  This service is included in the base price of all pens!  After all, the most important part of a fountain pen is the nib’s performance.

As an added bonus of this partnership, Scriptorium Pens will be able to spend more time on pen production, which is a major goal this year. In addition, other plans are coming together to increase production and get pens into customers’ hands more quickly.

A big Thank You goes out to Mark for taking on this work! It’s going to be a great year for Scriptorium Pens.

Introducing the Illuminaire

Gemstones! Who can resist them?! Ever since I was little, I’ve loved rocks and gems. The colors, shapes, and textures fascinate me. I have many fond memories of my mother piling a bunch of kids into the car and taking us to the annual MS Gem & Mineral Show, or for an outing to the Petrified Forest in Flora, MS, where we would pour over the myriad selections of polished and raw stones and select a precious few to purchase and take home as our prize for the day. I’ve spent many hours wading through creeks and picking up stones that intrigued me. To this day, I still collect them, using them as accents on bookshelves and window counters, and even in flower beds around the yard. So, it is only natural that I decided to find a way to fuse my love of rocks and stones with that of fountain pen design. The Illuminaire is the result.

The Illuminaire features a flush barrel pen design with slight tapers on each end. The cap and barrel finials are decorated with a round gemstone cabochon of 10mm for the cap and 8mm for the barrel. These gems “light up” the design in a way, or illuminate them, hence the name of Illuminaire.

With literally hundreds of gemstones to choose from, the possibilities for a customer to mix and match stones with pen materials are endless. Birthstones, favorite colors, bright and attention getting or subdued and elegant. Another interesting aspect is that you can, by choice of material, increase or decrease the ‘presence’ of the stone cabochon. I anticipate customers having lots of fun with the myriad options here!   Check out the Illuminare page for details.

Six of these new models are available and ready for shipping on the Pens for Sale page.


 

Introducing the Novelist, in a New Intermediate Size

Novelist

Novelist

For those that like a larger #8 nib, but in a more manageable-sized fountain pen, I present — the Intermediate size, first used here in the new pen model called the Novelist. This pen was created at a customer’s request for a pen inspired by the MB Oscar Wilde, in a size that would suit the gorgeous vintage Brown Crush Parker celluloid, yet still be large enough to accommodate a #8 nib.

The Novelist has a sleek, streamlined profile with a straight barrel that tapers at the end and a cap with a slightly rounded, dome-shaped finial.  The grip section has a gentle curve.

 

 

Novelist

Novelist in Vintage Parker Brown Crush Celluloid & Black Ebonite, with #8 18k nib

Dimensions for the Novelist are as follows:

Capped: 146mm

Uncapped: 136mm

Barrel Diameter: 14.5mm

Section: 24mm long, ~13mm diameter

Cap Diameter: 17.9mm

*Note: Dimensions are approximate, as all pens are handmade and no two will be exactly alike.
