Fountain pens : The Milky Way series


Introducing our latest handmade fountain pen series : The Milky Way, featuring glittering, spiralling patterns that might be stars or even other galaxies.

This fountain pen style makes us imagine we can catch a lift on Elon Musks’s Tesla Roadster as it heads off into space, watching stardust, planets, meteor showers nebulae, other spacecraft and shooting stars along the way.

Or could it be Lucy with her Sky of Diamonds?
