Designed and made by my father Ivo Daskalov, this wonderful Dip Pen combines the comfort and beauty of the walnut handle and the silver fitting, decorating this functional piece of artwork. It is worked with different techniques of engraving and inlaying, mixed with patina to produce an eye-pleasing layering of colors and materials. The decorations are inspired by the gaitans, a form of woolen braids that are used in traditional Bulgarian garments as ornamentation.
The pen comes with a handmade walnut and silver inlayed stand for it to rest when not used.
The wooden parts have been formed by lathe and finished by hand and hand tools. It is coated with natural oils and beeswax. The silver fittings are made from sterling silver.
The length is 18.5 cm, without the nib. The pen and stand are housed in a box to safely bring with you when travelling.
The pen comes with a removable nib, which you can replace with the ones you find most comfortable. The pen uses a standard 5 mm nib.
The perfect companion for any of the journals from the bindery!
