Dezfouli qalams are made from reeds growing in Dezfoul region. After harvesting, the lengthy curing process of the reeds ensures they are very supple and easy to cut making them a pen of choice even for present day masters of Arabic calligraphy. This 'seasoning' also gives Dezfouli reeds their beautiful colours - from hues of red, different shades of yellow, brown or even black.
Each reed is supplied unopened and uncut. Reeds are of different diameter and length (18-25 cm) and will be sent at random when ordered.
To increase the time between cuts, use water-based inks and always clean the nib after use.
