My name is Andrew Nichols and I’m a teenager who lives in Cypress, Texas. I learned to turn pens in Concepts of Engineering class in middle school. I love to make fine pens and have found a demand for my work. I bought my first lathe with my own money and took my passion to the next level by starting my own business – Andrew’s Artisan Pens.

I carefully select each piece of exotic wood or acrylic from around the world. Then I hand-chisel, sand, seal, and polish each one to an elegant finish. I find personal custom pens make an important statement. I consider it a privilege to share my gift and I hope I inspire pen users everywhere.

The write choice
for handcrafted pens


I have loved fountain pens since I was in middle school and couldn't believe the quality of pens that Andrew makes! I love writing in my journal with my pen, and writing letters using Andrew's pen gives each one a special and unique touch. I can't recommend Andrew's pens highly enough!

I have purchased multiple pens from Andrew over the past two years.  I have found the pen quality to be exceptional.  His attention to detail is first class.  He worked with me to design a custom pen that matched my ideas.  Now my office has a set of functional and unique pens that will last a lifetime.  I look forward to working with Andrew again.

Andrew made me a pen for professional and personal use several months ago. The quality is outstanding and leaves nothing more to be desired. I have used this pen every day of the past months and it has quickly become my favorite pen to use. His craftsmanship is high-calibre and well worth the investment.
