Our NP Fossil Preparation Pen is manufactured wholly by us. Based on a generations old basic engraver design, Our NP has substantially increased internals and components to enable finer precision work, to cope with the higher stresses inherent with fossil preparation and to prolong the tools working life, way and above its generic engraver origins.

Quiet and easy to operate with a relatively frugal air consumption and a refined adjustable air flow for precise control, a popular pen for many years, especially for "gentler" micro work or where considerable matrix removal is not a leading factor or in a gentler non workshop type environment.
