XS Pocket Fountain Pen

The XS is a fountain pen designed with mobility in mind. It is a super compact writing instrument that grows into a regular size pen when the cap is placed on its back. When closed, it is one of the smallest fountain pens in the world which makes it ideal for everyday carry (EDC). The cap is secured by o-rings that allow a super fast uncapping for quickly writing down your ideas.

The XS is a twelve-sided pen machined from solid blocks of aluminum and brass. The 12 facets prevent the body from rolling down your desk. It uses standard international ink cartridges which are available everywhere worldwide.
