Introducing the Compact Writer!

Sure, you love your Mont Blanc Author’s Collector’s Edition or your vintage Montegrappa, but you are understandably uncomfortable about letting it bang around in your briefcase or purse. So you leave it on your desk and consign yourself to writing with unremarkable pens while you are elsewhere.

But what if you had a custom pen with high end components that fit comfortably in pocket or purse for less than the price of a production pen? Something that was a pleasure to use yet designed and crafted to be out and about?

Compact Writer

Enter the Compact Writer! Made entirely by hand, these pens are sized for convenient carrying (averaging just 3.5″ in length when capped) but post to a full size for writing comfort. Fitted with JoWo steel nibs in your choice of Fine, Medium, or Broad, each Compact Writer takes a standard international cartridge and is light in the hand, most averaging just half an ounce. While we have a variety of these pens in stock and ready to ship, they are also ideal for customization. The Compact Writer can be produced in sparkling resins in a favorite color, traditional ebonite or exotic wood. Email me at if you would like me to craft a Compact Writer especially for you. Meanwhile, take a look at our current stock of Writers listed below. Click on any image for a full description.

FREE shipping to any address in the United States. For those living outside the US, please email me for shipping information. I will set aside your pen until you have agreed to shipping charges.
