    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.

    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.

Last Pen I Will Own

I am a pen and pencil snob. I have been looking for years for a pen and pencil set that I would cherish. With Wingback, my search is at an end. I first got a Brass mechanical pencil, and it quickly became my go-to EDC pencil (I'm a math teacher and I journal - I always need a pencil at hand). I loved it so much that I came back to Wingback and bought the pen as well. They are well-constructed, feel solid in my hand, and are - literally - a joy to write with. They are worth every penny I paid! Outstanding!

So good I had to buy another

The pencil is such a joy to use that I bought another. I’ve switched to writing in pencil for most things routinely, and the weight feels just right to write, plus the huge lead reservoir just keeps on keeping on. Matched with the pen and a stand in pride of place on my desk. Patina developing nicely.

Awesome

Have loved the mechanical pen since I got my eagerly awaiting hands on it. It’s build quality, texture, and weight balance are superb. A great product from across the pond!

Almost perfect

I love this pen. I wanted one pen that could be used for everything as I want to limit myself to the number of items I own. When I found this pen I was instantly sold. The action of the pen is lovely although it was initially very scratchy and I had to add some lubricant. The pen itself is very well balanced and for me the perfect length. My only disappoint, is whilst I initially ordered a brass pen, I contacted wingback with plenty of time and asked this to be changed to stainless steel as I realised that would have a more timeless look. I was assured a stainless steel pen would arrive, but unfortunately the brass pen turned up. I contacted wingback again to ask if this could be changed and was told I would receive a reply when the lady I had previously spoken to was back in the office. Needless to say I never heard back. Whilst I appreciate I should have been more considered with my initial choice, I am disappointed in the service I received from wingback. The pen is a thing of beauty, I just wish it was stainless steel.

Hi Rowan,

Really sorry your message didn't get through to me, glad the pen is almost perfect though. If there is anything I can help with please get in touch via email and I'll see what I can do.

Have a lovely afternoon,

Megan

They’re amazing and worth every penny

I was fortunate enough to find Alasdair’s amazing work on Kickstarter, where I promptly got 4 of his special Kickstarter pens and pencils. T

To say they are amazing is an understatement. The quality of the etching, how it feels in my hand - they've become my go-to pen and pencil for work where I am often sketching and drawing and at home for journaling and note-taking !

I can’t recommend these enough - they are worth every single penny!
