Need a CUSTOM FOUNTAIN PEN?
Beautifully handcrafted fountain pens.
PenTeo is a one man fountain pen enthusiast and handwriting passionate. All fountain pens are handmade or using machines operated by hand.
I’m producing fountain pens from various materials: acrylics, ebonite, Juma and ebonite with Urushi finish.
What materials am i using ?
Urushi, Ebonite, Juma/Elforyn & Acrylics
Ebonite or Hard Rubber is a natural material, mix of sulfur and rubber. It is the earliest material used in fountain pens. It is a durable material and when polished, it gives a beautiful lacquer like gloss.
Urushi Lacquer has been around for thousands of years. Over time, various techniques and art forms blossomed. The creation of urushi pieces takes a lot of time and skill.
Acrylic rods come in many colors or mixes. The blanc I use for the pens are from old stocks of manufacturers that have closed business, OMAS and Conway Stewart. The stock is limited.
Elforyn®is a modern, high-grade material that greatly resemble ivory in both feel and appearance. The use of Elforyn® instead of ivory protects natural resources.

“I ordered a custom ebonite fountain pen from PenTeo and it arrived yesterday. It is truly stunning, comfortable in hand despite the large diameter barrel and cap (I like larger pens, but this handles more like a mid-sized one) and was beautifully presented. I cannot wait to get more miles under its nib!”
“Superb, the size is excellent handling, good pen. I loaded it with iroshizuku ink asa gao and it works fine. The set is light which will allow to write long without fatigue. I am very happy with this pen. thank you so much!”
“The best moment is when I saw the pen and unscrewed the cap and section and barrel. It all screamed – EBONITE! And it is HUGE! Good weight and comfortable to write with. The cap does not post but you do not need to as it is a BIG pen. What an awesome pen! WOW! The pen writes superbly and the nib is buttery smooth. No skips. No hard starts. Good flow.”
“A pen transmits the voice of the soul..”
