Quintessa III


This handmade fountain pen is magnificently regal, named after Quintessa, a mysterious space sorceress in the Transformers film, The Last Knight.

Quintessa wears a hooded cape in royal purple. In her True Form, she is petite and wears flowing gossamer robes, but is also extremely powerful and not to be messed with.

The name Quintessa might also be a combination of Contessa, an Italian countess, and quintessence (as in, the quintessence of mysterious beauty).

This is the third batch of this material we have made, and in this case we have switched it up … ¬†this pen now looks so hot it could almost spontaneously combust.

And if you are wondering where the name of the Whitney model comes from, please visit @whitneydafoe on Instagram or Facebook. He and his family are our heroes.
