This is the Wingback Fountain Pen.

A versatile writing and drawing tool made in England, it is designed to let ideas flow — wherever your journey leads. Following the design principles that earned our previous creation, the Designer’s Mechanical Pencil, a coveted Red Dot award, it is engineered to encourage more time and consideration to be taken with every pen stroke.

A wide diameter barrel helps reduce writing fatigue, a diamond knurled grip provides reassuring control, and the satisfying weight of its materials ensures an even balance, whether used uncapped, for quick note-taking and sketching on the go, or posted for more precise, detailed writing and annotating.

It is available in stainless steel, raw brass, lightweight titanium or a scratch-resistant tungsten carbide-coated black steel, and can be customized with your choice of personal engraving, nib material and point size.

We believe fountain pens are the quintessential writing tool, an item to be cherished and passed down through generations. The Wingback Fountain Pen embodies these values and is made to let ideas and creativity flow, not just for the designers, illustrators, writers, poets, musicians and artists of today — but also of tomorrow.
