This hand-blown Herbin round glass dip pen is made in the tradition of 16th-century Venice. Each pen is an individual work of art. The fine glass tips are twisted in a light spiral to hold the maximum amount of ink. Glass dip pens are great for both fountain pen ink or calligraphy/dip pen ink!

Note: The instructions inside this glass pen say that you can smooth the tip with the included fine sandpaper. If you sand it, you’re altering the tip and will not be eligible for return. The more you sand away, the broader the line the pen will write. Whatever you sand away, you can’t put back! In our experience, it’s best to use micro mesh or mylar, as it’s finer than sandpaper and will sand less aggressively, minimizing the chance of irreversible damage. So go lightly, and understand that glass pens are stiff and will inherently not feel as smooth as a fountain pen.

Performance

I enjoy the uniqueness of this pen and its ability to hold ink. Consistency of line work seems dependent on the quality of the ink used, but overall, a good writing instrument.

A new pen experience

This in my first glass dip pen. Out of the box it felt good in my hand, and smooth on the paper. The tip holds enough ink to complete a sentence. A nice pen.

Gorgeous Glass Pen

I bought this pen to test inks and for writing letters with inks that are pretty but are more likely to clog nibs. It is a smooth writer and looks lovely. Because of the design, it doesn't roll and you can set it down without the nib touching your paper. I love my fountain pens and this is a great addition that gives me a little different experience.
