eighty years of innovation


In the great spirit of an era where things were made to last and, indeed, just get better with age, Hordern Richmond have bought together a collection of the finest artisan-crafted products. Made in England, in traditional workshops, each individually produced item becomes as familiar as an old friend.



Spitfire Pens & Pencils

You can imagine the guttural noise of the Rolls-Royce Merlin engined Spitfire as you hold this writing instrument in your hand. Created from an original propeller blade of a WWII Supermarine Spitfire, the wood is seasoned by the years in the air during one of the most poignant and emotive periods in history.

Gipsy moth Pens & Pencils

Made in celebration of Amy Johnson's record breaking solo flight from London to Darwin in 1930.  Like Miss Johnson's Gipsy Moth biplane propeller, our Gipsy Moth writing instruments are machined from Honduras mahogany.  We have acquired a small quantity of this scarce timber to re-manufacture authentic propellers for surviving airworthy Gipsy Moths, with the surplus allowing us to produce a limited number of these unique pens and pencils.
