Bruno is currently making the first batch of four pens, with
another to follow. We plan to make no more than twenty of
these pens, all by subscription, so if you want one, especially
with the number of your choice, this is the best time to
place an order.
Woo hoo! Development is finally done! We expect to begin production in the next
few weeks and are ready to take orders. What you see below is the pen in final
prototype. We still need to slim down the clip a bit and begin casting in gold,
rather than bronze. We are now taking orders, please feel free to contact us.

Work on The PENguin Pen continues, as reported on the front page. The pen has
acquired an accent line just above the caplip. Visually, it breaks up the long
line of the cap. In addition, the yellow Emperor Penguin accent just below the
clip is to be widened and Bruce is now designing the clip. As soon as all the
pieces are in place we will do photos and begin taking orders.
News From The PENguin
Another great pen day has
brought us the first two prototypes for the new PENguin
Pen. These are pre-production, fully functioning pens.
This is a large pen, the size, roughly, of the Pelikan
M1000. It is made of a combination of traditional and modern
materials, principally black hard rubber and acrylics.
It is a very high quality piston filler using fully reconditioned
vintage parts. The nib is a large German made two tone
18 Karat that everyone recognizes and respects. For its
size the pen is surprisingly light, well balanced enough
that it writes well and feels good either posted or not.
The one thing you do not now see is that the final version(s)
will have an original clip of our own design.
The maker is my good friend Bruce Hirschman of Bruno
Corsini pens so you know that all parts are and will be
hand turned and finished to the very finest standards.
We plan on producing no more than twenty five pens. If
you seek more information feel free to e-mail
me, but for now we mostly want your feedback, both
online and in person. We plan to have pre-production samples
available to test at the Chicago Pen Show.
