Keeper of Three Stones – Mahogany Inkwell, Dip Pen and Letter Knife


A solo project by my father Ivo Daskalov – A complete writing/calligraphy set from a beautiful combination of Mahogany wood and silver.


The Keeper of Three Stones Writing Set is born out of weeks of meticulous work, design an assembly. It is a combination of objects that bring about an inspiring calm and provide the means for a truly creative and fulfilling writing experience.


The central piece is the symmetrical robust inkwell. In its polished mahogany base, it houses the removable 10 ml glass well, that will secure the ink of your choice when writing. The sterling silver lid is attached to the base with a hinge and provides a smooth opening.


The lid itself is decorated with some chaotic engravings but the highlight is the set labradorite gemstone on a small platform on its top. Though not meant for travelling, as the cap is not tightly sealed, the wide and heavy base makes this inkwell a more than secure desk companion and quite protected from turning over.


The glass core is easily removed to be cleaned and refilled with the ink of your choice. The dimensions of the inkwell are 40x70x40 mm. The glass reservoir is 32 mm high, and 25 mm wide with a 20 mm opening.


The pen, letter knife and and their stand are carved from the same piece of Mahogany wood as the inkwell base. It’s an exotic but quite comfortable shape, making writing a true joy. The texture of the wood is such a beautiful piece of art from Nature itself and we’ve done our best not to interfere too much with it, other than the silver fittings and the setting of a labradorite gemstone on each handle.


The pen is polished to accentuate the texture but not in a mirror polish to nonetheless feel the warm connection with this extraordinary piece of wood. It is 14 cm in length without the removable nib and comes with its accompanying mahogany stand. Next to it can rest the unique letter opener which consists of a mahogany handle fitted with silver and labradorite, while the blade itself is made from bocote wood. It is 18 cm in length.


The whole set is housed in a wooden box for safekeeping and travelling.
