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.


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.

A pleasure!

I supported Wingback's Kickstarter project and bought their mechanical pen, key cache and 100 ml flask. Top quality! I have 25+ machined pens, and the wingback pen is right there are the top of them all. Very well made and a pleasure to write with.

Makes writing a joy

Writing with this pen feels great. The weight, balance, texture, length, width, and overall design are just fantastic. A lot of love and care was clearly put into every detail: this is the only pen I've used where the twist mechanism to extrude and retract the nib is an active cause of joy every time I use it.

This isn't hyperbole - I really love this pen. Thank you for creating it.
