The newest addition to JEB's PENs is the Desk Pen!
Desk pens use to be a staple for anyone that worked at a desk and were available in ball-point Pens, Pen/Pencil, and in earlier days as fountain pens. But for some reason, quality desk pens, particularly Fountain Desk Pens are almost a thing of the past. But now you can have a quality desk pen, have it in your choice of any of the three pen types, and have it made with your favorite wood or acrylic. Below I've detailed Pen types, current options, and material types available, as well as shown a few examples of sets made with the various materials.
Pen Types... Most of the desk pens that were last mass produced were made for ball-point pens or as pen and pencil sets. That was before the advent of the roller-ball. I offer desk pens in any of the three pen types: fountain, ball-point, or roller-ball, and as a single desk pen or a combination of pens or with a Pencil.
Ball-point and Roller-ball pen sets can be ordered as single pens, or two pens in any combination, or as a pen & pencil set with a 0.7mm lead pencil.
The ball-point pen and 0.7mm lead pencil have twist style mechanism, while the roller-ball would have spring loaded protruding tip. Just like the vintage sets, fountain pens are available as either a desk pen only (as shown in the top right photo) or as a conversion set that would include a full pen with a cap and the parts to convert it to to a desk pen (as shown in the bottom right photo) allowing full use of the pen in either configuration. The fountain pen funnels are threaded same as the cap, just like the vintage sets to seal the nib and protect it from drying out.
Materials... As with most of my custom pens, you can order a Desk Pen in several types of acrylics, wood or wood/acrylic combinations (wooden fountain pens are made with acrylic inserts to accommodate the threads).
Acrylics... While the colors and patterns of acrylics are many, because of the standard sizes that are typically sold for making pens, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a material for your custom desk pen. So if you might be interested in ordering one, please review this additional information that includes specifics information on available materials as well as sizes and styles options for bases:
