Jorg Hysek - The most expensive dipping pen? ($495.00)
Topic: Nibs
Jorg Hysek -- "The act of writing something important calls for a break from the ordinary. For example, when you sign that big contract, or write that letter to the editor expressing your outrage about some injustice, or compose a special message to a loved...those moments are made more special when you take the extra few seconds to clear your desk, prepare your paper, carefully open the inkwell and just as carefully dip your pen into the dark liquid, pause to think and, finally, bring your thoughts or your signature into the world for all to see. That's why we made a dipping pen."
