Quintessa III in the Whitney model

[Update: Pen #2 has been sold.] This handmade fountain pen is magnificently regal, named after a mysterious space sorceress in the Transformers film, The Last Knight.

As you may remember from our first batch, Quintessa wears a hooded cape in the same royal purple as the section on this pen. In her True Form, she is petite and wears flowing gossamer robes, but is also extremely powerful and not to be messed with.

The name Quintessa might also be a combination of Contessa, an Italian countess, and quintessence (as in, the quintessence of mysterious beauty).

Ever since we made our first batch of this material more than a year ago we have been wanting to try to recreate it and (after several attempts) have finally got the recipe right. We trust it lives up to her name.

And if you are wondering where the name of the Whitney model comes from, please visit @whitneydafoe on Instagram or Facebook. He and his family are our heroes.
