Real goose feather
Beginning in the antique going all the way to the medieval times the real geese feathers served as a writing tool for papyrus or parchment. Particularly great are quills for the artful calligraphy. These quills are immediately ready for use since they are precut.
To make the tip a bit harder you can heat it up in Quartz sand or Bird sand. For this you will need an old pot to fill with sand and heat this on a stove – until about lukewarm. Just dip the tip of the keel into the sand for a couple of minutes to harden!
Even without extra hardening this quill will present a clean writing result. The goose feather can be cut any time in different wide writing tips.
