Ostrich Quill Pen

Ostrich Quill Pen

$ 3.99

The writing quill pen came into use in the seventh century. It was the main writing instrument until the introduction of metallic pens and pen nibs that took over in the 1800's. Some of the best quill pens were made from the flight feathers of geese. The word pen comes from the Latin word 'Penna' which means feather.

These ostrich pen quills are supplied in 5 colors, sold individually. Color availability may vary. Each quill measures between approximately 30 and 35 cm in length. The bottom of the quill is wrapped with a colored ribbon and the pen is of a ball point (biro) type.
