Personalisation

We can laser engrave up to 50 characters on the barrel to your specification, enough space for your initials, name or a personal quote to make your pen a little bit extra special.

Design and Functionality

Over 25 iterations has honed in on this design. A larger diameter barrel means your hand won't fatigue as quickly as gripping a narrower pen and the knurled barrel provides good purchase for your fingers. The satisfying weight of the pen also acts as a gentle reminder to take more time over your writing and drawing, achieving a neater result.

Materials

Brass: 56g / 1.98 oz

The heavier of the two, the brass pen will develop a unique patina as its surface oxidises and interacts with the natural oils in your hands. This pen will quickly look like a timeless tool, but can easily be polished up to its original lustre.

Stainless Steel 304: 50g / 1.76 oz

Slightly lighter than brass, stainless steel has a harder surface and will not oxidise over time. This means it will maintain its crisp aesthetic indefinitely.

Cartridge

At the end of the day, a pen is only as good as the cartridge that you use. That's why the Wingback X works with Fisher Space Pens*. The PR refill is a pressurised cartridge with a tungsten carbide tip. Every pen comes with a PR4 (medium, black) refill. It lasts three times longer than alternatives and provides an unparalleled smoothness with every pen stroke.
