The Braun Quill is back and comes from Fryslân!

As a calligrapher I am always busy with writing and pen. 20 years ago there was an American who made delicious pens: smooth and resilient, all the good qualities of the old-fashioned goose feather, but with the best of today. They are wear-resistant and the ink reservoir is much better. In short, a very best pen.
But the maker died and production stopped. I got in touch with Ben Braun's widow and after a few months I was the owner of a mini-pen factory. All the tools and machines were in a large wooden crate in my studio, and what seemed so simple in the widow's letters turned out to be a little more complicated. Life went on and the machines collected dust, although I still looked longingly at my misunderstood machines. Until 2017. I took the tools in my hands again and suddenly the penny dropped. I understood Ben Braun. And since that time I make Braun Quills in Fryslân. In my studio in Leeuwarden I make the improved goose feather that is still called the Braun Quill in a traditional way, as a tribute to Ben Braun, who has developed a very special pen. The pen is made for calligraphers, but especially the new variant X is also a revelation for artists. The line that the pen produces is variable in thickness, without the sharpness of the crown pen that can scratch open the paper when printed. Not only an improved goose feather, but also a crown pen 2.0!
