richardandtracy

Recommended Posts

This thread is a list of pen makers who will take commissions to make pens.

 

Please can you add a post to this thread if you are willing to take commissions from people who want a pen made, and include the information listed below:

  1. General Location (eg USA) - this is useful for people to narrow down their sourcing.
  2. Type of work - Kit, modified kit or totally custom. It is assumed, unless otherwise specified, that you do not make your own nibs or feeds.
  3. Range of writing instruments (Fountain Pen, Roller Ball, Ball Point or Pencil).
  4. Range of materials worked (Eg wood, acrylic, celluloid, bone, gold...)
  5. Gallery address/Home page (if you have one)
  6. For Fountain Pens, can you specify the types of filler you do (eg c/c, piston, vac or button)

 

To commission a pen, please contact the makers by PM through the little envelope icon under their name in their post.

 

Regards,

 

Richard.

I'll put up my information here as well though my work is more customization than pen-making.

 

Location: New Jersey, USA

Type: Urushi Lacquerwork

Range: Fountain Pens mainly and rollers.

Materials: Urushi over Ebonite. Embellishments in Maki-e, Raden, Ishime, Tamenuri, Karanuri etc.

URL: www.hakuminurushi.com

Pens Possible: I currently work with Edison Pens to produce most of my lacquerwork. Their standard models are all possible and custom designs and adjustments are also possible. These are cartridge/converter or bulb fillers. I also do lacquerwork on select vintage pens such as Sheaffer's TM Touchdowns and Snorkels, Parker 51s, Parker Jackknife Safeties, Waterman's Eyedroppers and others.
