Kilk NovoBaroque Fountain Pen - Tortoise Brown


If it ain't 'Baroque,' don't fix it. (Sorry, art history joke) Kilk's workshop revisits the Turkish Baroque and Rococo period of Ottoman art with the decorated cigar shape of the NovoBaroque fountain pen. The floral ornaments on the silver cap band and cover wedge are inspired by the Dolmabahçe Palace, the pearl of the Bosporus.

Kilk tortoise brown fountain pen

This is the most beautiful pen ever! I was so pleasantly impressed with not only the look of the pen but also in the way it writes. I got this in an extra fine nib and was afraid it might be a little scratchy, but was surprised that it was so smooth to write with. I highly recommend this pen!

Robert M. (Zanesville, US)
Such a beautiful pen

I had my eye on this pen for months, and finally yielded to desire. It is so beautiful. The Jowo nib writes very smoothly, in reverse as well as normally. It is a very wet writer, so the stellar reverse writing is quite helpful on less-than-stellar paper, but thus should show sheening and shimmering inks to good effect. Not that I'd risk a shimmer ink in this pen!

Galen Leather has done it again for me!

My first Kilk pen, and what a pleasant surprise. The decorative roll stop is a stylish feature, a larger version of the motif in the band; but then, I don’t use pocket-clips anyway. I do not normally like two-tone pen bodies – they tend to look chintzy, but the cream body and swirled browns and copper in the cap compliment each other in a way that a pen of only one of those colors would not look as nice.
The converter screws in – this resolves the question; ‘do I have it in far enough?’ The Bock #6 steal EF nib writes smooth as butter, smooth as any gold nib. Comes in a very nice box, suitable for gifting, and includes a microfiber polishing cloth.

Beautiful elegant pen, I chose the broad nib and it is perfect, not too broad more like a medium plus, smooth writer, absolutley love it. I really love the style of the Kilk pens and already am looking at more : ).

Stunning Pen

This is a beautiful pen. I love the contrast between cap and body. I got the broad nib as I feel like they are one size smaller.

Lisa C. (Los Angeles, US)
Quiet elegance

A gracious pen, reminiscent of centuries past. It fits the hand comfortably, not oversized and not small, so like Goldilocks: “just right”. The metalwork on the cap is certainly Baroque but without overstatement. This is a handsome pen that brings elegance to any desk. Galen continues to delight with introducing new products that pay homage to the best of the past.
