Florian Läufer, the Hamburg photo professional, was a guest in my studio for a whole day for his blog “HANDWERK FOTOGRAFIEREN” . The result are wonderful pictures of the “making of” my handmade fountain pens and writing iNSTRUMENTSts:
"First the product: Frank Pressentin" The Penmaker " manufactures noble and valuable writing instruments. In fact, so precious that when you buy one of these unique pieces, a four-figure amount can easily be sold over the counter Whereby: Elbwood doesn't have a counter - only the workshop. Here the customer can discuss his later writing utensils by making an appointment with Frank Pressentin and this is also where the precious woods and very different metals are stored, from which fountain pens, ballpoint pens, pencils and accessories are stored
THE MOST PERSONAL WRITING DEVICES IN THE WORLD
Many pieces of wood are stored for several years until they are “ripe” for further processing. And then there is no guarantee that a worm has not eaten its way through the wood or that it has cracks - occupational risk Gold. The most personal writing instruments in the world are created from all these high-quality materials in almost 400 work steps! "
