This pen is amazing, I can not draw (that’s my wife’s skill) and but I wanted to find a pen that seemed different from other pens, including fountain pens, and I wanted it specifically for journaling in cursive....I saw this pen on a YouTube channel called Peter Draws and honestly he gave the pen a decent review but it wasn’t the review I cared for but it was the visual of this pen and the crisp lines it gave and honestly the images on this site and in the review do not do this pen justice the weight is beautiful the feel is smooth and the colour is truly pleasing to the eye....the pen gives a scratch sensation when using it on paper and I really appreciate that feeling it still glides but not in the same way as a fountain pen...and I find that this pen doesn’t bleed like my 18karat gold nib dip pen which is also really nice to keep the crisp letters in my cursive...though as a left handed writer I still have to work on my technique as to not smudge the in.

Handwriting, art, calligraphy it’s all my specialty & I love writing w my glass pen & ink! I’m always being asked to “write” things for people from Wedding invites, administrative items, school items.. it all started in Catholic School 😊
This pen is beautiful. I really like that the body is wooden, so it's warm to the hand. It also seems more durable than all-glass pens, which I have avoided for that reason. I do wish it were a little longer. Still, it is totally comfortable for writing. Actually, it is a joy to write with, The nib holds a generous amount of ink, so I didn't have to resupply as often as I'm used to with metal nibs. I've used metal italic nibs for Western calligraphy, so I tried this one and was pleased with the results. That said, I would love it if there were glass italic nibs available in this line of pens.
Just got this pen yesterday. I was sketching out my idea when my pen was delivered. Could not wait to try it. The ink flows rather nicely, does not run and dries quickly. The pen is gorgeous and handles well.
I love how beautiful and practical this holder is. It nicely displays the pretty Glass Dip Pens while also keeping them up off your work area, reducing clutter and the risk of breakage. Plus, it holds water for rinsing off the pen, everything you need all in one pretty glass holder!
I originally purchased a Thor Series purple Galaxy Glass Dip Pen and purple ink just to try it out and I immediately fell in love with it. So much so that I purchased this rainbow colored glass dip pen set, too. The glass dip pens are gorgeous, they hold a surprisingly good amount of ink, they write smoothly and the inks dry quickly as you're writing. I have had no trouble with anything breaking and I'm not a very gently person, so that in itself is pretty amazing! I have noticed that there seems to be a "sweet spot" on the pen tips, one side seems to write more smoothly. The "rough" side does not tear the paper, it just doesn't feel as smooth as the other. This is not a big deal for me as I prefer writing with the pens rainbow and purple sides facing me which is where the sweet spots are. I have also read that you can use sand paper on the tips to smooth any roughness, but I have been using these pens daily for several months and have not needed to do that. I LOVE these pens and highly recommend them to everyone!
After a day or so of just practicing and fooling around I got the hang of it and even learned to love my splotches! This is so much fun and the inks are vibrantly beautiful. Unfortunately I dropped my pen and broke the tip slightly but even with that and a light sandpaper I can use it. Will order another!
So beautiful. Pictures just do not do these pens justice.
It is my second glass dip pen. In addition to the Rainbow glass dip pen, I also have a blue glass dip pen. They are lovely and work a charm with any colour.
Gorgeous pen and inks, feels great in my hand and takes a long time between dips. I was expecting something flimsy, but the quality is excellent. Now I just need to improve my handwriting to do it justice!
Beautiful pen with beautiful inks. Packaged very well and arrived in great condition.
I purchased 4 different pens as well as inks for Mother's Day in May 2020. We were in the midst of covid lock down. I understood I would have to wait longer than normal for my purchases to arrive. The company kept in contact with me when i would email them. The items came much sooner than originally anticipated. The customer service was exceptional. We are all very pleased with the pens and inks. The pens are works of art. My daughter draws and sketches with them. My mother uses hers for calligraphy and I use mine to write letters. The pens are well balanced and stunningly beautiful. I can't say how very much I love them.
The pen amd inks are all breathtaking and I love using them. The only problem is that the ink runs out fairly gast in tbe pen so you have to dip it several times for one scentence. That wouldn't be a problem except I heard from other reviews
that the ink lasted a very long time in the pen and you didnt have to dip it very often. That is not the case for me and I was not expecting to have to dip it that much. However, I have no other complaints because I am mesmerized every time I use it.
The pen flows across the paper with ease, leaving crisp, beautiful lines. One of the best glass dip pens I've ever held!
I bought it for my daughter for Christmas, and all I’ll say is, it’s probably her most favorite Christmas present ever. When watching the reviews I was worried that they had gotten special “review” pens, but the lines this thing makes are just wow! It’s a very beautiful pen too.
