    Making us - and you - more secure

    One of the major issues facing all companies which trade online is keeping everything safe and secure - and we've all read stories of hacking on a global scale. It's your personal data that online thieves are after, so we put online security right at the top of our business agenda. That's why we have just invested heavily in creating a robust website that 'ticks all the boxes' as far as security is concerned - and why you'll now see the little 'lock' icon at the top of all our web pages.

    One of the benefits that you may also notice is that having our own secure server means that the access/page loading speed has improved.

    We have also added a 'Live Chat' function to our website, so if you need any more information you can send a quick message to us and one of the team will get back to you instantly. (Well, almost instantly!)

    Shakespeare Pens

    We are constantly surprised by the continued interest in our Shakespeare pens. After all, they were issued to celebrate the 400th Shakespeare anniversary last year, and we expected interest to dwindle once the anniversary year had ended. Far from it! There is continuing interest from pen enthusiasts all around the world. Like the longevity of his plays and sonnets, it seems there is ongoing love for the Shakespeare Pens, too. Here's a quick reminder:

    Churchill Silver Storm

    The image below can only give you an impression of the subtlety of colour, the light and dark silver shades, the luminescence and the almost mystical qualities of the extraordinary 'Silver Storm' acrylic material.You need to hold it and turn it in your hand to fully appreciate all its qualities.

    Beautifully designed and classically styled, the Churchill is a pen that says as much about its owner as it does about its namesake... One of those design classics that never goes out of style, however fashions might change.

    Wordsworth Bracken

    The Wordsworth is a timelessly elegant, mid-sized pen with a slight taper to the barrel and a gently rounded top to the cap, reminiscent of the larger and weightier Winston.

    Bracken is a complex acrylic material composed of many shades of rich browns and deep reds with the occasional flake of metallic green. The complexity of the material means no two pens will ever be the same, so if you are looking for a luxury pen that's as individual as you are, the Wordsworth Bracken takes some beating!

    Series 100 'Demo'

    The Conway Stewart Series 100 Demo is sure to catch the attention and admiration of everyone who sees it. Always popular with pen collectors, the Conway Stewart Series 100 has stood the test of time and is as popular today as it was when it was first introduced in the autumn of 1954.

    The Series 100 'Demo' is a made from an unusual acrylic that is semi-opaque. Rotate it in your hand and in places you'll catch glimpses of the convertor or cartridge inside the barrel. In other places the mottled black, grey, blue and silver in the acrylic give it a mysterious, metallic - almost electric - feel.

    For now, Best Wishes
