Some products are only made right by an experts hand. I have been making my quill pens for nearly a decade, attempting to reach a greater sense of perfection with each pen.
It doesn't begin with a massive assembly line, or a giant light facility with glaring CFL's, my pens are made here, in my home country, the United States. The raw materials are ordered in bulk, hand sorted by size and quality. Any material not meeting my strict specifications are either returned, or sold off in blemished lots.
Every pen is carefully balanced with the curvature of the pen, and assembled with raw materials that only properly mesh with each other. This process of careful selection produces a pen that with care, with last through the test of time.
