Our handmade Writer Pen is for writers, engineers, and architects engineered with precision to perfection.
You may be in the market for our handmade Writer Pen, made of the highest quality stainless steel and aluminium with one of the smoothest open/close systems around then this pen by Designer Nicholas Hemingway could definitely be for you.
Nicholas Hemingway’s handmade pens are meticulously handcrafted to perfection and he prides himself on his flagship product The Writer Pen.
The Writer Pen was designed for writers, architects and engineers to treasure in their daily work activities. Nicholas’ family heritage in writing and engineering has contributed significantly to whom he designs his products for. Perfect finishes and precision hand-turned parts are melded together to create a truly architectural pen. A definite statement piece that is not only architectural in form but truly functional too. Tactility is at the heart of the design of The Writer Pen and one finds it comforting – while writing or dwelling for a moment what to write – to hold and caress in one’s hands.
The Writer Pen has an interesting open/close mechanism that allows the pen to slide out super smoothly with its double integrated o’rings , The pen uses your hands own natural oils to lubricate the system and ensure the smooth action. It’s a fascinating concept for a pen and works so well. So well infact, it looks bomb proof in its construction yet at the same time so beautifully elegant.
The Writer Pen is honed from a single solid piece of the finest stainless steel which is then hand-turned, milled and polished until it is perfect and precise enough to be fitted into its aerospace grade aluminium case. The case is brush finished and has an ebony nib protector in one end which is polished flush with the case end and ensures the centred position of the pen once snug inside its elegant protective aluminium case.
A conscientious maker…
Our Limited Edition Writer Pen are limited for a reason. We use reclaimed ebony in our Writer Pens and woods we obtain through ethical means that are sustainable and proven to be. We recycle all our swarf (the waste metal that is removed when making the pen) and use recycled packaging where at all possible. If we do have to use plastics such as bubble wrap we use bubble wrap that has been sent to us, so we give it a second use and don’t buy it new. We normally only use recycled cardboard in our packaging and try our best all round to be conscientious.
Beautiful timeless design and a mixture of ebony wood, stainless steel and aluminium.
The zebrawood edition is equally as appealing but for those who love a warmer wood and metal mix in a pen.
A hand-built Pen is a treasure to own and perfect for writing and design sketching.
We have designed The Writer Pen around a Pilot G2 Ink cartridge. In our mind this is a very widely used ink cartridge and nib system amongst designers and creatives all over the world. We wanted to create the perfect pen around a very solid cartridge and so we did!
It comes with a 0.7mm black Pilot G2 ink cartridge and so replacing the cartridge is very easy. We have found the Writer Pen to never leak ink and always be ready for use after being stored in its case for long periods.
We first launched on Kickstarter in 2019 and it was a great project that we wanted to see going so much further than Kickstarter alone. It certainly has gone a lot further than that, we have sold many hundreds already and will continue to keep our flagship product going long into the future. This is the first pen that Nicholas Hemingway launched and we and many others predict it will become a collectors item one day.
