Some people really like the big pens. Well, for them, I have a pair of dip pens you may want to see. These are fully-functional, though really novelty pens. The pens are called "The Midget" made by the American Pencil Co. in NY. The holders are 11.25" (28.5cm) long without the nib, 13 7/8" (33cm) long with the nib, 3/4" wide at the thickets part. You can see them with a standard holder and Esterbrook Jackson Stub for scale. The two nibs are interesting. One is the Esterbrook Mammoth, a nib so big it requires a special holder. Until I found these, it was the biggest dip pen nib I had seen or heard about. The other one, which is almost identical in size and proportions, was made in England but then imprinted and sold in the US by M. L. Leman of New York and is called a Jumbo Falcon. I've never seen an English pen this large before, and none from anywhere as large as the Mammoth Falcon. But these nibs totally fit the size and proportion of the pens. These super-large, novelty dip pens come in a few different styles. I've seen a couple of others, but none quite this large. So, have any ultra-large, novelty pens or pencils you'd like to share?
