I recently came across this custom pen company that makes awesome handmade pens. Their pens just look so amazing that I might go to the extent of saying that they are my favorite custom pen makers. Does no one own any Herbert pens? I have never seen anything related here on FPN. Some points that make them so awesome are:


a)Ribbon material: This is a custom made material with strips of hand-painted paper. These blanks are transparent and are my favorite clear materials for pens. They look stunning and have this awesome glittery sheen to the ribbons. Also he can do the ribbons in any color combinations.


b)Hooded nib customization: This is also really cool. Chet Herbert, the owner, makes this customization to house Pilot Vanishing Point nib units. And what's even cool is that these pens take the Con-70 converter.


c)Many other blanks: Mr. Herbert can hand-pour alumilite blanks in colors of your choice and they look stunning to me.


Despite all this goodness, why do I see very less attention to these pens? I might be wrong as well but I have never seen many posts about these pens. I find them to be amazing and would love to add some to my collection. 


I just don't happen to have the funds XD.

I currently have one for order. The waiting time when I first messaged Chet a month ago was 6 months.

I think Chet's only been doing this for around 2 years now, so he hasn't had the time to build up his fame / "brand recognition" as much as some of the other custom makers. I've tried several of his pens, they're just as nice in person. I need to get in his queue for one of the VP-hooded variants. 

And those custom ribbon pens look really great in person!


Having met him a few times and spoken with him a bunch, he's a good dude and I look forward to seeing his company continue to grow.

Hello from Herbert Pen company,

  Jem is correct that I have really only been in business for about 2 years.  This started as a hobby for me which the demand quickly grew.  I have slowly grown and try to come up with unique materials that are not seen in our current market.   I'm slowly getting more and more recognition as well as my pens become distributed.  Keep an eye on Junes Pen World as there is a full spread on Herbert Pen Company and it will sure to help get the word out!  If you have any particular questions dont hesitate to contact me!

I'd also love to get one of those hooded ones sometime. They are beautiful.
