The item was shipped quickly, with a lovely note from Erika. The base is in great condition. However, the pen does not match the base. Erika reached out, offering a refund. I like the base, and am in no hurry to use it. I didn’t know enough about Esterbrook desk sets, so was surprised this one holds ink in it. Truly different times when this was new. You can buy from Erika’s shop with confidence that she is a great seller going the extra mile to help.

A Penchant for Making Pens
Owner, Designer, Creator
I'm a calligrapher and illustrator and I wear my inky fingers with pride. I've been known to grind my own ink and create my own tools in a never-ending quest for just the right mark. Sharing this passion with others is one of my great joys.
Chief Support Engineer
Keith is my husband and the reason I'm able to get anything done at all. He's an engineer by day and he uses his expertise to put together the best jigs, work benches, and tools to help me create my pens and accessories.
Salt Lake, UT
I buy finished cases from an overstock seller and then I customize them for my pens.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I take a limited number of custom orders. Feel free to make suggestions of what you would like to see in my shop but if you have design or time restrictions, I will let you know if I can fit your request in the schedule. Rush orders will require an extra fee.
Never leave a wood pen to soak in water. Wipe it off with a damp cloth and dry it well. Also avoid using cleaning products with ammonia which can damage the finish of the pen. When you dip the pen in ink, only allow the nib to submerse in the ink and not the entire flange. If ink dries inside the flange, it can be hard to remove the nib. Keep your custom pen out of direct sunlight and treat it with care.
