Pjotr Spica Virginis Fountain Pen (3D Print - Limited Edition)
Please note: this is a special limited edition available per special order only and exclusively available through La Couronne du Comte.

After more than three years, required to overcome various technological challenges, there is now the limited edition Spica Virginis fountain pen from Pjotr by Rein van der Mast: a titanium fountain pen completely printed with a 3D printer, including the patent pending nib!

Resembling an ear of wheat and named after the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, where the virgin holds a bunch of spikes, this spectacular creation has an 搊pen frame. This is only possible by constructing this pen using a 3D printer. The titanium, used to print the pen, makes it solid, well-balanced and ultra-strong.

Printed nib
Extra unique to the pen is the 3D nib (patent pending), completely printed as well. The nib is printed in titanium with the slit included: it is the first time that a fountain pen nib is created in this way. 3D printing allows for the creation of very complex ink channels and can precisely affect the way the nib interacts with the paper. The nib itself writes wonderfully, it is comfortable and reliable, the 3D design makes it also stunning to see. Upon request, we can arrange for the nib width to specification.

Printed pen case
Also the pen case is extraordinary. Its structure is very complex and called a 憀attice, printed in nylon. Structures like this are only feasible by 3D printing. Common benefits are in better stiffness-to-weight ratio. Apart from this, it makes for a stunning desk accessory.

Limited Edition
Only 100 pieces of the pen will be manufactured. Each pen will have its serial number included in the 3D print of the barrel. The pen uses standard international cartridges or a converter.

Interested to see the pen in person?
We can imagine you want to see this extraordinary creation in person, therefore we have been graciously given a prototype for our store to show. You are more than welcome to visit our store and hold it in person.

There he was able to extend his skills in additive manufacturing, another term for 3D printing. Van der Mast: 揑n case of the Spica Virginis design has priority over technology.
