I've never needed a pen collection until now. These are amazing looking! The first pen has a tobacco leaf in it too.

    I actually do have a collection of fountain pens and inks... might be time to add a new one!

    I like my flat grey Cross ballpoint best.

    I recently got a Montblanc fountain pen as a gift for Christmas (I think it's fake). If I can find a few cigar fountain pens, then I'll definitely buy 1 or 2, as I'd like to have a few nice pens to carry around.

    Is there an online store? When I searched it only showed a Facebook page

    Those are really neat looking pens.  Would really ad to the ambience of a smoking room or cigar bar.

    From one of the comments on the facebook page, they are made from pen kits.
    Not quite an original from Mont Blanc or Montegrappa

    These pens can be found on Etsy. Search "cigar pen" in the search bar there.

    That is all I saw as well @deadman, and it looks like they do custom orders which is cool.

    @Diver43 - what are some of your favorites?  Lately I have bought a few from karas kustoms.  I have one of their Boly V2 ballpoints machined from solid brass and solid copper, an ink fountain, and their special decograph with a titanium nib they just released. http://karaskustoms.com/signature-pens/decograph-ultra-black.html

    I have a few cheaper ones and one from a local shop (also handmade) but always dreading the day another catches my eye :lol:

    I used to collect fountain pens, did so for years. Lost over $15,000 worth during the tornado. A bunch were looted.
    There is something reminiscent of a more gentlemanly and honest times when using a fountain pen, and every once in awhile I pick one up to remind me.
    Shame of it is, today kids can't even talk in complete sentences much less pen one.

    Better to do a search for "pens that look like cigars" then cigar pens. There is a style of pens that are called cigar pens that other then shape have nothing to do with cigars.

    Well said

    Sorry to hear of your loss of pens.  Looters are the lowest level of scum.

    I have a few entry-level fountain pens and ink, but haven't kept up with using them.  It's amazing how much easier it is to write with a fountain pen than a ballpoint pen, at least for me.
