This is a writing plume and ink set I purchased in New Orleans. It was handmade in France and it is one of the most beautiful things I've seen in person. I rarely use modern pens when I write in my journal anymore. I also use it when I'm setting intentions, writing manifestations, and calling forth my ancestors.
If you enjoy penmanship, writing, and paper in general I highly recommend using one of these. It makes the process so much more enjoyable, whimsical, and seductive. If you have a lover to write to even more so.
