"In principle, I work like a bespoke tailor, transferred to writing instruments," says Frank Pressentin. In October he opened his Elbwood store in HafenCity. The Hamburg branch newcomer calls himself "Hanseatic Penmaker".
"400 work steps are necessary to complete a writing instrument. With Pressentin's individual pieces and mini-series, all parts - except for the ballpoint pen refills and nibs - are made by himself on mechanical machines." I wanted to be independent of the industry ", he says. "
