A Minimal, Heirloom Quality Metal Pen

Meet the pen you’ll use – and love – for a lifetime.

Former aircraft engineer and mechanical designer Andrew Sanderson of Modern Fuel Design launched his first product in 2015, on Kickstarter. Designed with an all-metal build, seamless design, and a timeless aesthetic, the simple mechanical pencil delighted creatives everywhere. With an initial goal of $4,000, the campaign ended with a total of $138,000. The second version of the design reached total of over $200,000. Celebrated minimalist architect John Pawson said this about the 2.0 pencil: “…there is pleasure in contemplating an object that must clearly contain many intricate parts, but appears as a single piece of milled metal.”

As it has become the norm with Modern Fuel Design product launches, the latest addition to the series made waves with a successful debut. Indeed, the crowdfunding campaign reached its goal in under 10 minutes. The conclusion is clear: the need for high-quality, ‘buy once’ products that also have a minimal aesthetic has only grown over the years. As gorgeously minimal as the mechanical pencil, this 100% metal pen has an heirloom quality. After all, it’s made to last a lifetime and age gracefully with use.

The American-made pen is expertly machined from a single piece of solid metal, providing superior durability and strength. Featuring a custom self-lubricated bronze mechanism that also has its own spring, the top clicks smoothly. The balanced design ensures more comfort and a ‘just right’ feel in the hand. The pressurized Fisher Space refill guarantees the ink’s smooth flow while writing or drawing. For more convenience, this Modern Fuel pen is compatible with a wide range of Parker type G2 refills. A hand finished surface completes the design. Crafted to last decades, the pen also comes with a lifetime repair or replacement guarantee.

This heirloom quality pen comes in four versions. The titanium and stainless steel options are both resistant to corrosion and will maintain their sleek, silver surface over time. By contrast, the copper and bronze pens will patina with use to gain more character and that lovely vintage-style look. Photographs© Modern Fuel Design.
