London design studio Wingback makes useful, everyday accessories with an attention to detail you can see, smell and feel. Its range of machined stationery and minimal leather wallets bear all the hallmarks of an heirloom collection, each made responsibly in the UK and built to last decades not months.
The Wingback Mechanical Pen epitomises this "buy once" philosophy. Machine turned from a solid bar of raw brass or stainless steel, it is reassuringly weighty in the hand and evenly balanced to encourage time to be taken with every pen stroke. A satisfying single-handed twist mechanism locks the nib in place and a wide diameter helps reduce writing fatigue.
It houses a Fisher Space Pen pressurised cartridge that lasts three times longer than alternatives, has an estimated 100 year shelf life, will perform in temperatures from -30ºF to +250ºF, underwater, in zero gravity and virtually anywhere your journey takes you. Best of all, the Mechanical Pen can be personalised with custom engraving, making it truly one of a kind.
