Yard-O-Led’s hand-crafted writing instruments are made in England from sterling silver, using time honoured methods of craftsmanship. They started out as makers of the first propelling pencil, earning their name from the yard of lead the pencils contained. Victorian styling and fine detailing mark Yard O Led pens out, including a unique clip crafted by 8 different processes. Victorian finish pens are hand hammered at least 2,000 times, whilst each pen is individually numbered and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
The Yard O Led Viceroy is our bestselling range from this English brand, owing to its classic shape and clean lines.

Fountain pens feature an 18k gold nib and come with a converter, whilst rollerball and ballpoints come with a blue ink refill.
