Small but MIGHTY.
Introducing the Tom’s Studio Pocket Fountain Pen. This little pen packs quite a punch despite it’s diminutive size. Measuring 99mm when capped and a whopping 163mm it feels like a full size pen perfect for all hand sizes. This is a zero compromise pocket pen with a fantastic selection of interchangeable nibs.
The Pocket Pen Measures 99mm capped. 163mm with the cap posted. Has a grip diameter of 9.2mm at it’s thinnest and 11.2 at it’s widest and weighs 25g.
The Pen comes with an ink cartridge filled with our deep black ink, you can easily refill it using the included syringe from a bottle ink.
You can also rinse your ink cartridge to fill it with another colour.
Balance - As customers who have followed Tom's work for some time know, he obsesses over balance. It can really make or break a writing instrument. Which is why he's gone over the design and tweaked all of the materials and dimensions to get a balance that sits perfectly in the centre of the pen. Also, when posted (cap on the back of the pen) the extra length just gives you an extra bit of leverage to play with so that you can achieve a lightness of touch when practicing calligraphic upstrokes too.
No Limits - Traditional fountain pens often have a restricted grip area that’s next to an ‘ungrippable’ thread section. Personally Tom likes to hold the pen closer to the nib when writing and further away when drawing. Which is why the Pocket Pen has a 50mm length with no interference.
Sustainability - Tom is a big advocate for creating products that last. Despite being an innately sustainable design, the fountain pen has an Achilles heel. The disposable ink cartridge, it’s incredibly convenient but once empty it’s unfortunately destined for landfill. So he's included a very handy ink syringe, this gives you the ability to refill your ink cartridges! It works by drawing up ink from a bottle of your choice which you can then fill your previous cartridge with!
Micro-Grooves - Customer feedback (thanks folks!) has led Tom to machine tiny little grooves in the body of the pen. This means you get all the benefits of the anodised aluminium (longevity, colour weight) without a slippery grip.
Roll stop - Octagons are the bestagons... hitting that sweet spot between comfortable form in the hand, whilst stopping your beloved pen from disappearing from sight as it plunges towards the floor (inevitably) nib first.
All the nibs - Calligraphy in a coffee shop? Why not! Instead of carting all of your gear. The Pocket Pen’s perfectly portable proportions in combination with nibs like the flex titanium make practicing anytime, any place a breeze.
