A choice of two different styles of Roman dip pen, based broadly on extant examples. A perfect addition to a writing kit.


The spiral pen features a wooden handle with a spiral bronze nib and costs £8.

The bronze pen is rolled and forged from a piece of sheet bronze and costs £12.


Both styles will vary slightly as each is handmade, but we do test all our pens before sending them out to be sure they write well. You can make adjustments to the line width to suit your own writing style by using a piece of fine glasspaper or a nailfile to adjust the tip thickness. If you have a preference for a thicker or thinner nib, do let us know when you order and we'll do our best to make something that will suit.


All our Bronze items are made to order. The way our order book is currently working, we open the shop approximately once a month for new commissions and shut it again once we have as many orders as we think we can realistically make over the next 4-6 weeks. Please be aware that your order may fall anywhere into that timescale. We'll always aim to be as prompt as we can.
