The art of handwriting is still very much alive and well at luxury pen boutique Penfriend. The store has been selling vintage and contemporary pens for more than 60 years and stocks an impressive range of both; indeed, more than a thousand vintage fountain pens, ballpoints and pencils can be found on its shelves.
The discerning pen collector is well catered-for by Penfriend. It stocks Parker 51s and Parker 61s in standard and rare colours, as well as in luxurious 9ct and 18ct gold. Each vintage pen has been lovingly and fully restored by Penfriend’s workshop.
