This is a tiny 1 inch vintage pen that I have converted to a REAL Working fountain pen with a REAL Working vintage Esterbrook Fountain Pen Nib. It should write as well as your $100 fountain pen yet it is the smallest on earth with a real nib. Well actually the world's smallest fountain pen is the nanonfountain probe whose line widths are measured in nanometers but I digress. The recognized claim for the world's smallest fountain pen is an ultra miniature pen made by Waterman in the early 1900's. It measured 39mm or 1.54 inches and went for $6,000. My pen is 30% smaller! It measures less than 28 mm or 1.1 inches by 0.38 inch wide.

I took a tiny vintage fountain pen style item and I cut it open, found a tiny vintage fountain pen nib, cut it to fit and made the hole fit the nib. Then I drilled a hole for a gold-plated bail. The pen was not designed to hold a nib so in order to make the cap stay on the pen securely, I painted the rim and inside of the pencap with a flexible clear rubber type material. Please do not try to remove it, the cap will not say on.

I have also made a tiny ink bottle out of a mini glass vial (7\/8" x 3\/8" without stopper) and put real ink inside. You can use it as an inkwell too just dip and write. You can fill the belly of the pen with ink but I can't seem to make it flow to the tip as in a traditional fountain pen because of the size. The inkwell has a loop so you can also wear it on your chain (make sure the stopper is on). Now you can have it with you whenever the mood strikes you to write a poem. It comes with an 18" 0.8mm gold plated brass chain but you can choose to upgrade to an 18" gold filled 1.2mm flat cable chain for an additional $8.


I can also turn these into earrings (one on each ear) or you can choose 2 fountain pens for earrings ($15 extra).

Ink conforms to ASTM D-4236. Please choose between Indian Ink Black or Cobalt Blue, if you do not indicate color choice I will choose for you. You can also refill it with standard fountain pen ink.


** Warning: this is NOT a toy. It has a very sharp standard nib and will poke an eye out. Also I really would not recommend wearing the ink if you have a toddler. Not only can (s)he yank it out of the stopper while you are wearing it and get ink all down your blouse, (s)he can also swallow the whole ink bottle!
