Wordsworth & Bläck Crest Collection (Rosewood)
Wordsworth and Black seem to operate along similar lines to Dryden Designs: own-branded pens made in China. This example is in Rosewood and is not dissimilar to many other Chinese wooden bodied pens. The packaging for this pen states “Designed in the USA, assembled in China”, so there may or may not be a US connection too. The nib is marked ‘Genius Iridium Germany’, but same caveat as with Dryden Designs. The nib doesn’t always start as easily as the Dryden and is not quite as smooth, but certainly not a ‘problem nib’.
