If you like writing with fancy pens, MB&F and Switzerland-based pen maker Caran d’Ache have created a beautiful pen in the shape of a rocket ship. It is called the Astrograph and it was four years in the making. It may just be the coolest pen ever.
The cap has retractable landing gear and a tiny ladder for a miniature, magnetic astronaut figure, and the packaging doubles as a launch pad display stand.
The pen features an ink pump but can also work with cartridges. Its nib is made from rhodium-plated 18K gold, and its body can be had in rhodium-plate or ruthenium-anthracite plate. Both can be done in either matte or polished finishes.
Each version is limited to 99 pieces. Sadly, the price is astronomical at roughly $20,000 per pen. This is one pen that you don’t want to lose.
