    Dip Pens

    I want to make a couple of Dip Pens for myself. I am after 2 Inserts and 2 Nibs. Looking on the internet they all come in packs of ten or so. Rather than buy the packs of which the majority will end up in a cupboard is there anyone who wants to sell me 2 sets or do a swap for a decent pen kit .

    Dip pens are what I first used years and years ago when I was taught to write in ink.

    Just use a fountain pen and don't fill it with ink just dip it instead

    Were you an ink monitor responsible for mixing the ink and filling the desk inkwells. It was my task from time to time.

    I fancy a go at dip pens too

    If you don't have a better offer, I'd be happy to share a box with you Vic - not terribly expensive although the postage is twice the price of the inserts!!

    Drop me a PM if you're interested.

    After a lot of searching I came across this site. Their postal charges were well under half of what Stiles and Bates wanted

    Penholders PenmanDirect

    I went into their catalogue items such as Violin and Crow Quill as names for nibs intriguing the prices are deadset cheap IMHO, so glad you found it in the UK, now you are really on your way.
