Where did you get that pen?

I have had several people ask me where did I get the beautiful pen in the header image of my website.

The answer: Cotswold Pens. During a visit to my home town of Witney in Oxfordshire, England I came across Andy King and his hand crafted pens at the local Farmers Market.

Andy makes his pens from sustainably and responsibly sourced woods from around the world. The Bolt Action Bullet pen you see in my picture is made from Berberis, a wild shrub that grows on his family farm.

In our high-tech world of texting and keyboards, it’s a treat to put such a beautifully crafted pen to paper.
