The Milky Way series


Our handcrafted fountain pen series, The Milky Way, features glittering, spiralling patterns that might be stars or even other galaxies. We currently have one of these pens in stock in Deep-space Black, with a Jowo nib in polished steel.

This fountain pen style makes us imagine we can catch a lift on Elon Musks’s Tesla Roadster as it heads off into space, watching stardust, planets, meteor showers nebulae, other spacecraft and shooting stars along the way.

Or could it be Lucy with her Sky of Diamonds?

You can order a custom-made Milky Way fountain pen in Sparkly Purple, Midnight Blue, Deep-space Black, or Martian Green; alternatively you could request your own colour and we will do our best to oblige.
