Skribent pens

Skribent (meaning 'writer') is an interesting sub-brand of Penol, the biggest Danish manufacturer of fountain pens. Skribent pens are easily recognisable because of the clip that depicts a snake's head and part of its body. Many of the Skribent designs are very attractive.

Penol made sub-brands for big customers who wanted to display special brands and special pens in their stationary shops. Skribent was made for the foremost fountain pen shop in Copenhagen, Fyldepenne Magasinet ('fyldepen' meaning fountain pen).

The pen below is of a rather traditional design. It is fitted with a stainless clip and also a stainless nib reading "Skribent". The use of stainless steel and the unostentatious design leads one to think that this pen was intended to be an economy model, but it could also have been a war model.

A beautiful pen whose design very much reflects its origin in the Penol factory

Below a very attractive pen. Not only is the work on the clip very elaborate, but in addition the non-linearity of the plastic design emulates the skin of a snake and its movements. See further pics below.

A few Skribent caps. The mottled colours and the plastic quality clearly signalises Penol, but the clips makes for the individual statement of these pens.
