Premium penholder "Silex"

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Each “Silex” penholder is sculpted by hand in thuya burl. This hard wood, speckled with dark brown points sees his color varying from orange blazing to chocolate-brown chestnut.

Provided with multiple facets, I voluntarily gave it an esthetic calling back to the first tools created by men. Its rather short size makes it pleasant to use for every type of calligraphy. However, its facets can cause slight irritations between the thumb and the index during a prolonged use.

Every copy is unique because it’s shaped accordingly to the irregularities found in the wood.

Nib not included.

TYPE : Straight
TYPE OF WOOD : Thuya burl
FINISH : Oiled
