1) Pentel Fountain Pen - Black - Water-Based Ink - Fine
The Fountain Pentel features a unique double-sided 'delta'-shaped nib. This has a longer support on one side than the other, meaning there is a subtle but noticeable difference in writing feel. Choose to write with one side and it feels more flexible, while the other side will give a firmer response. Over time the nib will wear to the style of the writer, offering a unique writing experience.

2) Venetian Writing Set
Evoke the Baroque period by writing whimsical love notes or secret letters with this set of writing tools. The venetian writing set features a classically designed glass writing pen. The uniquely spiralled design of the nib is not only visually pleasing but works as a reservoir for holding ink when writing and allows for precise flowing script. We suggest you try this pen with a smooth paper and high quality calligraphy ink. Take care when cleaning as the glass pen can be fragile. Use soap and warm water. A spiral glass pen. One sheet of parchment . Bottle of sepia ink.
