The pen is integral part of any man’s EDC line up but given that they’re becoming increasingly less used as part of our day to day routine it is perhaps more important than ever to ensure you push the boat out a little and get one that is the cornerstone of your accessories. Something like the Wingback Mechanical Pen, which is funding on Kickstarter right now, would definitely get our vote here at Coolector HQ as it is both incredibly classy and performs faultlessly.
Boasting a wonderfully pleasing design with a striking aesthetic, the Wingback Mechanical Pen will really finish off any creative man’s EDC line up and you’ll be delighted by the tangible sense of quality it has when you hold it. Aiming to take a stand against the disposable culture of fast fashion, London design studio Wingback has created a new line of products they believe will change the way consumers – and manufacturers – behave and this stunning pen is the latest addition to that line up.
The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword
In order to get the early bird pricing of £67 on the Wingback Mechanical Pen, you’ll need to take advantage of their Kickstarter campaign before it goes up to the RRP of £95 at the conclusion of the campaign. Part of Wingback’s desire to create “buy once” products, this is a piece of stationery designed to last a lifetime and has the sort of heritage quality that is suitable for passing from one generation to the next. Each one is designed and crafted in the UK from European brass or stainless steel, each pen will only get better with age, transforming something once considered disposable into a treasured item that you can use day in, day out.
Hewn from a solid bar, the craftsmanship behind the Wingback Mechanical Pen is mighty impressive to say the least and each one is knurled, milled and assembled by hand to exacting standards to ensure the unparalleled quality you see before you. If you really want to customise yours and make it unique to you, you’ll be pleased to hear that you have the option of a laser engraved personalisation along the barrel of up to 50 characters.
The wide 10mm diameter and custom knurled grip of the Wingback Mechanical Pen is ergonomic perfection and makes sure it sits comfortably in the hand to reduce writing fatigue while its pleasing weight encourages time to be taken with every pen stroke. As a celebration of this new line of products, Wingback have joined forces with select artists from around the world, bringing their iconic illustrations to life for special edition collaborations.
High Quality Components
As you would expect from such a well made piece of EDC, Wingback have ensured to use nothing but the best when it comes to the components of their Mechanical Pen. Each one has been designed to specifically fit the Fisher Space Pen® Pressurised Ink Cartridge which is undoubtedly the best in the business. These cartridges last three times longer than alternatives and feature a tungsten carbide ball to give you an unparalleled writing experience that is a joy to use.
If your EDC collection has space for a new pen in it, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better option than this awesome looking and impeccably well crafted Mechanical Pen from Wingback funding over on Kickstarter now. Designed to last a lifetime and provide an exceptional writing experience, we love its industrial, vintage style aesthetic here at The Coolector and we’re sure there will be plenty of men looking to add this to their line up over the next few months.
