About

"PS Powerful Signature was created to share the passion of manually making pen and attache ware designs."


The history

PS Powerful Signature was established on 1 January 2017 after a year of experimenting with pen making.

My name is Rob van Nigtevecht, Artisan Fountain Pen Designer and owner of PS Powerful Signature.

I always loved fountain pens, watches and old machines for the shear beauty and elegance like the rose engines or Guilloché lathe's which are incredible complicated machines for creating instruments and engraving. Some still exist and are worth a fortune.

One day I decided it is now or never to make things myself, for the joy of writing, scribbling and drawing with ink, which I do a lot with great pleasure. This gives a kind of peace which writing on a computer just cannot offer.

To celebrate the humble pen and ink, which gives us more than we think, I started to make them myself and wondered if it is for me possible to make them from raw materials, without buying pen parts and that is possible.  The Nibs and converters are sourced, there are far too complex industrial processes involved to make and using standard parts for and using standard parts assures availabilty world wide.

And the plan is to keep doing this for a good 20 years, providing people with good quality writing tools.
