The steampunk feather pen and ink samples combine into a writing kit and comes with all the basics one needs to begin writing elegant notes, letters, lists and more.

It's a set of several components - a leather case, a paper band, three colors of ink and two empty bottle to color mix in and a feather pen with extra nibs included with the kit.
Rich genuine leather has been lightly oiled to help maintain its flexibility and luster, helping prevent cracks and dryness, for the maximum amount of long term use, and a straight threaded edge to finish it off. Open up the clamshell shaped case to reveal a leather tie to easily hold down papers, envelopes, pictures and other ephemera, along with five slots inside to fit five small glass bottles with twist top lids to securely hold in your three primary colors of ink included with this kit or water for rinsing off your pen with.

Roll up half of the clamshell case to easily display your inks on your belt or snap it closed to keep everything organized and protected. At the back of the case is a belt slot and directly below that belt slot is a pen slot to hold your feather pen that comes with this kit.

Customize this kit by choosing which leather you would like this kit to be made with and which color of feather pen you would like included to further compliment your own personal style.

It's a great entry level gift for those who are interested in ink art but might not know where to start or what things to purchase. With this beginners kit, the user can familiarize themselves with the pieces and naturally form their own preferences for advancing in dip pen or calligraphy writing. For more instruction about care of the kit how t o hold the pen etc, please keep reading for details below.

Dip pens can be used for everyday writing, adding elegance to what would otherwise be a simple chore. Sketch out your ideas, write down your thoughts and transform the ordinary into extraordinary with the simple addition of a steampunk sample ink and feather pen kit.

About the tips (Nibs):
- Italic nibs have a blunt edge and don't offer much flexibility in terms of line variation. They are used to create Italic scripts that are consistent and regular, as opposed to the whimsical scripts seen in modern calligraphy.

- Point nibs (the nibs included with this kit) are rounded with two tines that come to a point. Line variation comes from the tines' ability to split. The more they separate, the wider the line produced. A flexible nib can produce more line variation than a stiff nib. Too much flexibility can be difficult to control, so it's best to experiment and see what's most comfortable for you.
_____________________________________

To Install Other Nibs with this pen set:

- Make sure the nib is compatible with the holder.
-Take the base of the nib and gently wedge it into the nib holder ring. The fit may be tighter depending on the nib holder and nib, but it should never be loose.
- Once it's secure, the nib holder is ready to use.
__________________________________

How to Hold the Straight Nib Pen:

- Hold the nib holder like a regular pen.
- Dip the nib into the ink and wipe the excess on the bottle. Before writing, make sure the nib is at a 45 degree angle for optimal ink flow.
- Do some test strokes to see how the ink behaves with the nib and paper.
- To vary the line width when using a point nib, apply different amounts of pressure on the down strokes. Do not apply pressure with upstrokes as the nib may catch on the paper.
___________________________________

Car of Pen Nibs:

- Nibs often have an oil coating to protect against sticking together and rusting. To prep it, you can pass a flame under it a couple quick times, or use rubbing alcohol or toothpaste.
- Always remove the nib from the nib holder when not in use.
- Wash the ink off the nib with water or rubbing alcohol. Calligraphy inks tend to cake onto the nib and may prove to be difficult to wash off.
- Make sure to dry both the nib holder and nib completely to avoid discoloration.

What's The Difference Between Calligraphy Pens and Dip Pens?

The original calligraphy pens are otherwise also known as Dip Pens, stemming back to the early pens made from reeds or feather quills, used by dipping them it into the ink. A dip pen or nib pen usually consists of a metal nib mounted on a handle or holder, which can be made of wood, metal, feather quills or even glass. Generally speaking, dip pens have no ink reservoir; therefore the user has to continue to dip the pen into ink in order to continue writing.

This is a beautiful and extremely unique piece and I love everything about it! I'd love to get another one with either a gold or silver frame eventually. I cannot wait until we can do in person events again, because my half-elf wizard is going to rock this so hard! I also loved the wax sealed note that came with it. I will definitely buy from this shop again and highly recommend them to anyone!

I am extremely pleased with the craftsmanship and overall beauty of my new pocket watch. I wore it (as a necklace) for the first time on yesterday, 11 September 2018. Many people stared and even stopped me to inquire about it. To say the least, it received a lot of praise. Great timepiece; thanks!!
