    Kitless Fountain pens from South Africa

    About seven years ago my best friend came to me and said he wants to make luxury pens. I told him I have no idea how to go about doing it. About three years ago I made a number of oblique pen holders, but sales petered out and I lost interest. In September I decided to have a go at making a...
