PEN CLUB INTRODUCTORY PRICE POINT - AVAILABLE 4/27
Imagine flying at 70,000 feet moving at 410 mph, your life depending on staying within a 12 mph window of the plane either shaking apart from going too fast or the engines stalling from losing speed. A place lovigingly nicknamed the "Coffin Corner". Doing all of this while using some of the most precise, high altitude photographic equipment and maintaining control of light touch piloting system ever installed in an airplane. You'd be flying the U-2 spy plane; one of five planes with over 50 years of service that ranges from use by the Central Intelligence Service, to the United States Air Force, to NASA. A thrilling and terrifying concept to say the least.
Our latest Decograph seasonal release pays homage to U-2 stealth reconnaissance plane developed in the 1950's and still in service today. To reduce weight and maintain structural integrity, we're using Delrin® for the barrel, grip, and cap. We've tumbled the material after machining, giving it that classic stealth appearance and a wonderful tactile feel while in use. The aluminum clip and finials have been anodized flat black giving the entire pen the perfect look. We suggest adding a Titanium nib to set of the entire pen, much the U-2 features titanium wing tips to add to the plane's overall performance. Unlike the U-2 which was immensely difficult to operate, the Decograph U-2 provides an amazing writing experience, the material warms to the touch and provides great feedback when in use. These won't be laser marked as this is a larger batch and we wanted to maintain the finish throughout the pen. This run is limited to 100 pens.
Each pen ships in our custom made and marked pen capsule, with a polished steel nib in sizes EF–B, 1.1mm stub, or 1.5mm stub, a standard international converter, and five black standard international cartridges. Two-tone, black lacquer, titanium, and 14K gold nib upgrades are available for an additional charge when selecting your nib.
The #6 nibs units are manufactured by Peter Bock in Germany. Also included with each pen is a Schmidt K5 cartridge converter and 5 black Monteverde ink cartridges. This edition is designed, machined, and assembled in the USA from US and imported material.
