Thank you for visiting Parus Pen, a premier crafter of fine writing pens, wine or liquor bottle stoppers, and bottle cap openers. In stark contrast to mass produced items, my handmade pens and other gifts are turned one at a time on a lathe with traditional tools and woodworking methods to be functional works of art.      
   

Whether it's a cool pen as a desk accessory for yourself, a gift pen for others, or a beautiful bottle stopper for the wine enthusiast, your Parus Pen creation will be one of a kind. Thank you for considering my work!

Handmade rollerball pen with rhodium and acrylic by Parus Pen

"Daniel:

Just received the pen today, marvelous, beautiful pen. I own many, many pens, Mont Blancs especially; your pen has a wonderful weight to it; lovely in the hand. Writes well. The cap cedes into base which makes using the pen a pleasure. You should be very proud of your artistry. I’ll be back for another pen very soon."

Fountain Pens

Fountain pens provide a pleasing and often nostalgic aesthetic. Although fountain pens require some care not required of other pen types, they reward their owner with a wonderful writing experience. 

Fountain pens are capped pens and available as postable fountain pens (cap can attach to end of pen while writing) or classic traditional desk pens with a non-postable fountain pen design.
