This New York-based maker of beautiful fountain pens is a great example of a small shop making quality products. Each pen is hand-made except for nibs, feeders, and converters. Even the metal work on pens with clips are done by hand by the folks at Hardy Penwrights. I own one of these and it's among my favorite fountain pens in my small, but actively used, pen collection. Buy one of these pens and it will be a treasure you'll keep and use for a long time.
