EXCLUSIVE. No railroading & finest needle point ~ Flex G fountain pens will be available.


Thanks for visiting! My new pen ideas came to me from years of eclectic experience in handcrafting. Pens are made by me, Emi Schima in California. I've always loved G nibs for pointed pen calligraphy but experimenting with the Schmidt M made another story! I have the MB 149 and agreed...

I've got a lathe after joining Nor Cal woodturner's club. They kindly taught me how to turn wood bowls. There were so many woodworking tools I've never heard of. After a long process of googling, ordering, waiting another drill bit, tap & die, Harbor Freight, repeating and over 1000 pen blanks, I've reached the point where I make my own shimmery ombre resin blanks to turn.

Meanwhile despite the name Rubato (pen studio), poco a poco rubato my closet is full of classical music sheet books and the Yamaha C7 is a new packing station. Ahhhhhhhhh Valhalla. 
My background music when I’m at a lathe is Led Zeppelin 70s lives. They run for 3-4 hours. Thank you LZ. 

We were at SF penshow's the most hidden table. With a maskless dog 😀


There's one proven thing.
