Brief History


In 1998, Classic Pens Incorporated, a full subsidiary of Classic Pens Limited, was formed in Los Angeles, California. Its primary objective is to satisfy demand for Classic Pens products and offer an efficient service to the American market.

Through the steady stream of business, the company was able to establish a strong reputation and clientele. Andreas Lambrou, the president, developed working relationships with craftsmen, artists and pen enthusiasts that gave birth to new and exciting products such as the LS Collection of Maki-E Art Pens.

Classic Pens LB2 Kimono

In 2003, Classic Pens Inc launched its LB collection. The name is derived from the surnames Lambrou and Brown, the two founders of Classic Pens Limited. The pens of these exclusive editions will be hand crafted using a wide variety of quality materials and techniques.

LB1 Nagahara

The LB1 Nagahara was the result of a fruitful working relationship between Classic Pens and the Sailor Pen Company in Japan. It comprises just 100 fountain pens, hand crafted from the highest quality acrylic. The pens are mounted with a choice of the two most exclusive and highly acclaimed Sailor nibs, the hand crafted Naginata Cross Emperor and the hand tuned Naginata Togi.
