Heritage Pens Fights Autism
Over the past three years I have worked on taking the traditionally two-dimensional jigsaw puzzle design and applying it to the world of pens. The design has undergone several changes during this time, finally resulting in several different forms which are available through us. The "Original Jigsaw Puzzle" is made from American ash. The "Tie-Dyed Jigsaw Puzzle" takes off on the original by introducing a rainbow of color. The "New Jigsaw Puzzle" goes yet a step further by incorporating 18 different woods. A fourth version, completed in beautifully dyed and professionally stabilized woods, is now available. This has led me to create a four color puzzle pen to raise funds for the fight against autism.

Our premium 18 karat gold nibs are available (as an option) on most of our fountain pens.
The nibs can be ground to virtually any shape, such as stub, cursive Italic, etc. The design is floral with an inkwell and quill pen motif. They are marked 18K - 750, standard jeweler's notation for 18 karat gold. The 18k gold is further embellished with 24k gold and platinum creating the beautiful two-tone presentation while preserving the working properties of 18k gold. These nibs provide for a fantastic writing experience and we think you are worth it! Our standard Heritage SF (semi-flex) gold and platinum plated nibs continue the tradition of fine German design, engineering and manufacture and are available (standard) for all models, as well.
