condition: new
This Quill Pen writing/calligraphy set is assembled using the finest wild turkey feathers collected from my personal hunting. Three pen diameters are provided: Large primary wing quills, medium secondary wing quills, and narrow tail quills.
The quill tips were first soaked, scraped and cleaned. They were then hardened by immersion in hot sand (too hot will melt the quills). This has already been completed for the quills provided, and they are ready for cutting.
The instruction sheet for cutting the quills is drawn from diagrams that I located on the web, and it is all that I have used so far (I am new to quill pen construction). I am sure that superior instructions are to be found on the internet.
A book of calligraphy writing paper is provided, along with a bottle of ink. An Exacto knife (pen knife) is included to cut the hardened tips into pen nibs.
The inclined table (see diagram) is used so that the quill pen will drip less ink onto the paper, as the inclined table requires the pen to be used in a more horizontal position.
Enjoy.
