Amazing pen total satisfaction

I can’t remember the last time I purchased a product and was so overwhelmed by its fit & finish and the level of detail.

I bought the brass pen with personalised inscription. It holds beautifully with great balance & weight, nice and short enough it fits my (large) hand perfectly. The inscription was perfectly aligned (I have a keen eye for these things) and it was exactly what I asked for. I can’t wait for the brass to colour over time and develop its individual patina.

Total credit to Alasdair, your team and partners in the Birmingham machine shop. The tolerances are so tight the cartridge and screw in mechanism are a precision fit.

Having bought my first pen I have already ordered my second in steel and will keep a close eye on Wingback in the years to come. I can see them being one of my favourite design companies. I wish I was an original backer on Kickstarter but I’ve only just discovered Wingback.

To the whole team a big thank you and very excited for the future.

Mechanical Pen steel

My mam wanted to get me a special present for my 50th birthday, I chose the mechanical pen, engraved with my name and date of birth. Also got the pen sleeve, which fits really well. The pen is really well designed and made, perfect wright and size. It's like using a draftsman's instrument from a time when things were made to last. Couldn't be more pleased with pen and case. Customer service great, delivery date as promised. I've since ordered a card holder for a friend's birthday. Will use this great company again.

Mechanical pen

I bought this pen for my husband as a Christmas present . He loved it . He already has other items from Wingback which he loves (his wallet and travel wallet ). so I decided to buy the pen for him . He really appreciates well made items which will last so this pen is exactly what he likes. It is very tactile and looks great . It arrived very quickly and in plenty of time . I am sure we will be getting more items very soon .

My Wingback collection started here...

Ah Wingback... what a wonderful little company. But I have to say that it’s also a brand that creates a conflict in my collecting nature. How can I sensibly covet and then hoard things that are genuinely designed and constructed to use for a lifetime?! So anyway... of course I have all three of the pens (Brass, Steel and Black Steel!!) and although I suppose I can justify that each one can hold a different ink colour, the reality is that my original (and gloriously cool) brass pen is all I’ll ever need for the words I’m still to write in this world. I also own a simple card holder and pen sleeve in chestnut leather which have aged wonderfully and finally a matching notebook cover which sadly has stayed pristine in these lockdown days. One day soon (let’s hope) it too will pick up the marks of life on the road, and the personal song lyric inscription that Wingback added for me will then have even more meaning and resonance. So, I guess you can say I recommend the company! Excellent and friendly customer service, classy but understated packaging, and a few surprises that each new customer will discover for themselves. Thank you Alasdair and the team, for doing what you do.

Satisfaction

This has become my 'go to writing device', I love the weight, and the mechanisim feels so 'correct' it has become a constant companion when cogitating words, ideas etc.
