Established in 2016, Jason Neil Penworks is a small workshop located in Houston, Texas that is dedicated to crafting custom fountain pens by hand. All pens are made in my shop using only hand tools and a woodworking lathe. In using hand tools, no two pens are ever exactly alike, creating unique variations within each piece, and making for a singular and functional work of art.

I owe all the credit for being where I am today with my craft to my grandfather, Neil Tucker, who patiently taught me the finer details of turning handmade pens on a lathe. I am grateful for the wisdom and experience he has imparted to me, and for the chance to continue developing and improving this unique craft.
