Each Jacques Herbin glass pen is handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail. These pens are typically made from high-quality borosilicate glass, which is known for its durability and resistance to thermal shock. The glass is carefully shaped and molded to create a slender, elongated body with delicate curves, creating a comfortable and ergonomic grip for writing.
One of the most distinctive features of Jacques Herbin’s glass pens is their transparent design. The clear glass body allows you to see the ink as it flows through the pen’s grooves, which can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. This transparency adds an element of intrigue and beauty to the writing experience.
The nib of the glass pen is usually hand-blown to perfection, resulting in a smooth and consistent ink flow. These pens are compatible with a wide range of inks, including calligraphy inks and fountain pen inks, making them versatile tools for various writing styles and projects.
The small grooves on the pen nib allows several lines to be written without dipping and is best used with fountain pen ink. The twisted glass nib allows the ink rise in a capillary action. The pen is easy to hold with a good grip and allows fluid and precise writing.
Each glass pen is associated with a traditional ink colour.
Round glass pens come in a gift box with gold-foil branding.
