    The Wingback Mechanical Pen has been designed to last for decades, not months, epitomising our “buy once” philosophy. Machine turned from a solid bar of aerospace-grade stainless steel, it is reassuringly weighty in the hand with a wide diameter to reduce writing fatigue and encourage time to be taken with every pen stroke. A satisfying single handed twist locks the nib mechanism in place and every pen can be personalised with a laser engraved inscription of up to 50 characters along the length of the barrel. *Fisher Space Pen® Pressurized Ink Cartridge. ‘Fisher’ and ‘Space Pen’ are trademarks of Fisher Pen Co. Boulder City, NV U.S.A.

  • Metal: Aerospace-grade stainless steel from Europe, CNC machined in Birmingham, UK. Tungsten carbide carbon finish applied in Cambridge, UK.

    Cartridge: Fisher Space Pen® PR4 Pressurised ink cartridge from Boulder City, US.

    Sleeve: Oeko-Tex double thickness cotton sleeve from Poland, Europe.

    Finish: Laser engraved, assembled by hand and packaged in London, UK.

  • Dimensions: 10mm (0.37”) diameter, 117.5mm (4.63”) length, 50g (1.76 oz) weight

    Cartridge: Black Fisher Space Pen® PR4 cartridge included

    Engraving: All inscriptions are in capital letters and run along the length of the barrel

    Considerations: The Black Steel pen retains all the precision and corrosion-resistant qualities of stainless steel, while the tungsten carbide finish increases the surface hardness 9x. Any marks it picks up from regular use should be easily wiped away. However, the surface is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. Anything harder than the surface (diamond, some ceramics) or really aggressive use will be able to scratch it, which is why we recommend keeping it in its cotton sleeve when not in use, and carrying your diamonds in another pocket.

Perfect

I love the stuff made by Wingback. This is the second pen I have purchased. I keep one in my pocket in the leather case and another on my desk in the steel holder. Such great quality and feel to these products.
I can’t be without one now. I thought I had lost one the other day and you can tell a level of affection for a product when you do that.
Strongly recommended

Beautifully Crafted Tool

I confess to have three Wingbacks in my pen arsenal. Each is a beauty to behold, engineered to satisfy NASA, and a delight to use. True craftsman (a rare art these days) dedicated to their calling. I have nothing but compliments for the pen itself. The gliding of the mechanism is like a Zen moment. The only thing preventing a "Five Star" rating is the ink cartridge. The ink flow leaves something to be desired. As a frequent fountain pen devotee, the pressure required for the ballpoint detracts from the experience. Perhaps a roller ball cartridge would be better. Better yet: get Wingback to design their own cartridge! All in all, very highly recommended.

Absolutely great product

What an awesome pen. I decided to spoil myself with a decent pen and I think I made the best possible choice buying a wingback. It is just the right weight and writes perfectly. The mechanical movement it smooth and locks in place but also retracts easily. I am very pleased with my purchase.
