    History of the Quill Pen

    The quill pen is an historically important writing instrument. Before being replaced by modern pens, it was used by draftsmen and artists to create beautiful calligraphy and manuscripts, especially in medieval times. It gained popularity because of its malleable tip and its ability to make a wide variety of lines. It is still used today by nostalgic enthusiasts, calligraphers and artists

    Quill Feather Pe

    • Function: The quill pen is made from a feather of a large bird, and was widely in use prior to the invention of the dip pen, the metal-nibbed pen, the fountain pen and the ballpoint pen. It is still used as by calligraphers because it provides a fine stroke and more flexibility than a standard steel pen
    • Types: The most desirable feather to use for a quill pen is a primary flight feather taken from a large bird in spring. Goose feathers are the most common, and more-expensive swan feathers are considered deluxe. Other bird feathers used for quill pens come from the crow, eagle, owl, hawk and turkey. The barbs are stripped off the feather to allow the writer to grip the shaft of the pen more easily
    • Construction: Once the quill feather is collected and the barbs removed, the shape of quill is altered by letting it stand in hot sand. A small shard knife is used to reshape the nib and hollow out the tip of the quill. The nib is sharpened from the outside to create a point. The feather's hollow shaft behaves as an ink reservoir
    • History: Until the emergence of the steel pen, most draftsmen used quills. In the Middle Ages it was popular for its ability to create intricate images in manuscripts. It was used starting in the medieval era, and was eventually replaced by the stronger and more extravagant steel-nibbed pen, which was popular in post-medieval calligraphy. The quill pen influenced the design of the fountain pen, which was the professional man's ultimate status tool in the 1950s and 1960s
    • Benefits: The fineness of the quill pen's nib allows the artist to create small linear figures or ornate decorations on paper or parchment. This characteristic, combined with the flexibility of the point, makes the quill pen easily adaptable to personal styles. The soft and supple tip of the quill allows for a wide variety of strokes, from soft, thin lines to energetic, thick lines

    Feather Pen Crafts

    Irishwo Peacock Feather Quill Pen for Gift Decoration

    It is not difficult to make feather pens. Everyone uses pens. Pens have been around for thousands of years in one form or another, and quill pens are among the most familiar. Quill pens were made from long, sturdy feather quills and dipped in ink for writing. Today, gift shops sell them as novelties and people make them for history projects and plays that take place in the past. Some pens even look like "modern quills," with brightly colored feathers decorating the ends of the pens rather than serving as the pens themselves. There are several such feather and pen crafts that adults and children can create

    Feather Quill Pen

    • Real Quill Pen: The hardest part about making quill pens is writing with them afterward. For this project, you need a feather about a foot long with a thick, strong center rib and scissors. Snip the tip of the feather at a 45-degree angle to create a writing point. If the feather is white, you may choose to dye it with a little food coloring or watercolor paint. If the feather is already dyed or you do not want to dye it, begin writing after making a little ink. Mix 5 parts fine soot with 2 parts gum arabic and 3 parts vinegar in a small bowl or pot. Write by dipping the pen into the ink and writing as normal. Dip the pen every few minutes to renew the ink
    • Faux Quill Pen: This project results in a quill pen that doesn't need to be dipped in ink, eliminating the need for an ink pot and making the pen more portable. All you need is ballpoint pen refills, scissors and a long, strong feather. Begin by snipping the tip of the feather straight across to make a round opening. Hollow out the feather by slipping a long embroidery needle or bamboo skewer into the opening. This should punch through all the filler inside the feather's center rib. Insert a ballpoint pen refill into the cleared feather rib and secure it inside the feather with a few drops of white glue. The pen is finished and ready for writing
    • Fun Feathered Pen: This feathered pen looks nothing like a quill. It is, however, a fun and inexpensive way to dress up ordinary ballpoint pens and make them look like fashion writing accessories. The craft starts with air-dry modeling clay such as Sculpey or pretty patterned ribbon, some colorful feathers, glue and a regular pen. Mix and roll different colors of clay together to create a pattern or marbled effect before rolling it into a single flat heet. Roll the sheet around the body of the pen, carefully pinching and smoothing it around the tip. Slip some short, pretty feathers into the end of the pen and let the clay dry. For a ribbon pen, wrap a piece of ribbon around the pen, covering it completely and securing the ribbon with hot glue. Slip feathers into the final layer of ribbon around the end of the pen

    How to Write With a Quill Pen:

    Feather Pen

    • Use very light pressure when writing with a quill pen. You must use much less pressure than you usually apply when writing with a ballpoint pen
    • Trim the feathers of your quill pen so they do not obstruct your grip. Proper grip is necessary to write well with a quill pen
    • Purchase calligraphy ink, usually found at an art store, to use with your quill pen. India ink is too sticky and won't flow well
    • Write on flat rather than textured paper. Textured paper is too difficult to use until you get used to it
    • Recognize handwriting with a quill pen is very different than handwriting with a ballpoint pen. It's like painting narrow lines. It'll probably look much different than your normal handwriting and you'll have to practice to get used to it
    • Sharpen your quill pen. Using a small, sharp knife, cut a small piece from the outside edge of the nib at an angle. After the nib is sharpened several times, it's worn down and you must get a new quill pen

    Package Included:

    • 1 x Quill Pen
    • 5 x Pen Nibs
    • 1 x Bottle of Ink

00:00:00 11-25-2010 excellent writing instrument Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I love this set and have used it quite a bit the ink is just the right thickness to flow smootly evenly and if you like the feel of writing with a quill pen on cotton paper you will love this the only issue is the price you can get this pen and quill set for a 1/4 of the price listed here at another retailer and yes this is retail price too. I bought mine for 18.00 yes the same exact thing and was shocked to see the cost here. Everything is the same pen ink packaging and vendor. Pays to shop around. The retailer I purchased it from a store in the town square in Williamsburg. I checked the store online and they list it for the price I purchased it for. Its a great gift for some one like me who loves calligraphy and who just loves to write on quality paper with a quality pen and ink. It was a little treat to myself. I did not open it for months until I got much better at calligraphy. You will enjoy it and I dont recommend it for kids it is an adult gift unless the child is extremely careful and its not done near carpeting on on a bed any material that can stain. I also purchased real quill pens the original and used the dipping ink and wrote on cotton paper it gives you a feel for what our ancestors wrote with and brings you a little closer to our American heritage was so happy that I bought it and when I return to Williamsbug I am going to purchase a few more the ink is indigo I believe but looks son beatiful on the paper its lighter on paper than it looks in the bottle. great gift for a soon to be lawyer, artist, historian, teacher, writer, and good for even some one who has never tried calligraphy or writing you will open up a whole new world to anyone who has not tried it.
