Stipula Ventidue Limited Edition History

A visual look back at the limited edition pens in the Stipula Ventidue (Tocco Ferro) collection. All of these pens are handmade in Florence, Italy and feature a translucent ink window. The metal used for the body and cap of most of these pens is specially formulated with a heavy component of iron. "Tocco Ferro" is an Italian phrase that translates to "iron touch", which is an equivalent to the "knock on wood" expression, like a gesture of good luck.

Introducing Herbert The Fan – River City LE

Our fourth exclusive collaboration with local penmaker Chet Herbert is now available! Both companies are based in Richmond, Va and "The Fan" is a well known area of Richmond. "River City" is a nickname for Richmond as the James River runs through it, so that's how this fountain pen came to be named, "The Fan - River City." The Fan is a tapered model that is postable and has a seamless body to cap fitment. This resin is so unique that no two pens are exactly alike! Each limited edition pen comes with a free matching Rickshaw pen sleeve and [...]
