Nahvalur (Narwhal) Fountain Pen - Clear Demonstrator + Leather Pen Sleeve
From the depths of imagination surface a new breed of writing instrument tapping into the stream of consciousness with artistic beauty and elegance. Yes, the Narwhal fountain pen is a real pen! The swirling, translucent acrylic has a mystical aquatic quality. The Narwhal drinks deep of fountain pen ink with an internal piston-filling mechanism. The stainless steel fine writing nib has a consistent flow to keep up with an ocean of thoughts.
They say that the Narwhal is the "unicorn of the sea." The Hippocampus is the mythical "horse of the sea" depicted as a half-horse, half-fish animal of ancient lore. Hippocampi are said to have pulled the royal chariot of Poseidon. The swirling curls and ribbons of purple and white are inspired by the graceful cavorting of the aquatic Hippocampus.

This Narwhal demonstrator fountain pen is my very first fountain pen, and I don't think I'll be going back to regular pens ever again. The way ink is laid onto the paper in various degrees of shade is so visually appealing and easy on the eyes. I find my dyslexia isn't so strained with fountain ink as it is will ball point and regular inks that don't have shade variation. I also lent my pen to my sister-in-law during a writing round table and she said it aided her creativity because she kept wanting to use it, so her mind continued to feed new ideas so they'd be written down. I completely agree! I will actually keep a regular journal as well as three WIP book notebooks because of how much I look forward to using the pen.
I bought this to replace a different demonstrator that had broken as a daily use/abuse pen, but it has far exceeded expectations. Durable, looks great, and most importantly writes fantastically. Smooth, not too fine, but fine nib. Fantastic pen.
The demonstrator has opened up several conversations about fountain pens with my team as well and a couple of converts.
Piston filler pen at an unbeatable price! High quality and excellent finish! I reground the nib to a fine cursive italic. It writes like a dream.
I have nothing but good things to say about this piece. Writes so smooth and is very chic.
I got this very lovely fountain pen as a gift from my husband and it's a joy to write with! I have a soft spot for demonstrator pens and this one had to be in my collection. The original F nib was not for me, but luckily it's not a problem at all to exchange the nibs and with a B I am more than satisfied! Great pen!
I've heard great things about the Narwal Pen and found it here at Galen Leather for a very good price. I took a chance and ordered it. Galen posted a 2 to 3 week turn around time. In exactly one week, the pen was here! It's a beautifully made pen. No, it won't compete with a Pelikan Sovereign but it's as good as the pens I have costing 3 times it's price. The resin is crystal clear, all the chrome bits nice and shiny, the filling mechanism works perfectly and it even comes with the tool you need to take it apart for deep cleaning. Mine came with a medium nib but the nibs are Jowo #6 so it's super easy to swap out.
To make the customer service even better, the pen arrived with a Galen Leather pen sleeve. It's thick enough real leather so it won't scratch your pen and yes, you will use it! Inside the package was also a nice canvas pen tote, big enough for 4 to 6 fountain pens. Inside the package are two beautifully hand written notes. One is a thank you note and the other note telling you about their company history, again with thank you's. But wait, that's not all! There is also a leather key fob, a packet of tea AND coffee so you can enjoy a beverage while you write with your new pen. To top it off, their is a lavender towel so you can wipe the ink off your fingers when you are done. To me, that is just over the top customer service. Thank you Galen Leather!
Lovely pen and I really enjoy writing with it, I possibly would go for a fine bib next time. The pen sleeve that comes with it is a lovely extra and great to give the pen some protection
Iv ordered multiple items from Galen and I couldn’t be more pleased with every single purchase!
This is a lovely demonstrator set. The leather sleeve is beautiful and the demonstrator pen is clean and perfect showing off inks.
I am very satisfied with the quality of construction materials and the smooth-writing medium nib. even flow throughout use on many types of paper stock. The Narwhal is extremely solid and well-balanced, so there is really no need to post, but it is possible if preferred. The quality leather pouch is one which will last a lifetime. Highly recommend this lovely writing instrument which has style and grace!
