The Perfect Pour

A deep dive into the world of Macallan Scotch whisky.

"Working with wood is like meditating," says Stefan Fink, the Hamburg-based maker of an exquisite collection of fountain pens and sketching pencils. "Both require preparation and patience." Fink uses exotic woods such as olive, rosewood, and kingswood, which undergo a three-year drying process before being turned by hand. The pens, from slender to voluptuous, have a steel interior and are finished with an 18-karat-gold nib. We especially love the beautifully gnarled, driftwood-like pens made from 400-year-old grenadilla (commonly used to make clarinets), as well as the purple-and-black snakewood collection. $600-$800. At 66 Koppel; 49-402-471-51; www.stefanfink.de.
