Hello all!


I’m fifty aged, master of goldsmith from Poland.

I used to make handmade weeding rings, but few months ago I started to interest in fountains pens and I found this forum.

I live in unique region – Silesia and it influenced me and my work. Silesia is usually known from coal mines, but this region has changed to business and high industry center, nonetheless coal is still deep in our culture.

This prompted me to make my own fountain pen  - Silesia.




The pen refers to the industrial tradition of the region, where I've been living for 50 years.

The pen illustrates the transformation that has taken place at that time.

The body made of black ebonite with embedded onyx symbolizes the tradition of the Silesian mining.

They contrast with the titanium ferrule referring to modern technologies.

With this pen, I want to express pride of the region.

Tell me what are you all think about it. Maybe I could make something better or you just have tips for me, I’m waiting for your comment and opinion.

Lovely pen! Please do tell us more as time permits.

I have just one very small, very old piece of accessory trim from your region, Silesian wire work.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Welcome, that pen looks very elegant, the grip seems comfortable.
