Machine Era Field Pen | Twist - Now On Kickstarter (Sponsor)

A black metal pen with an orange twist mechanism? Sign me up!

That’s all I needed when seeing the Machine Era Field Pen | Twist launch on Kickstarter. And it was great to know that a company as talented and respected as Machine Era was behind it.

The Twist is the latest in a long line of successful projects launched from their Richmond, Virginia machine shop. That’s right - all of their products are designed and manufactured on site by the Machine Era team.

While I initially fell in love with the Orange Twist, you can order this pen in all Black DLC coated, Stainless Steel, or Brass barrels. All of the pens ship with the excellent Itoya Aquaroller 0.7 mm gel ink refill, which is a Parker-style refill, so all similar refills are compatible.

The Machine Era Field Pen | Twist is available right now on Kickstarter for $65 in your choice of material and style. There are less than two weeks to go on this campaign, so if you like the looks of the Twist, it is time to jump on it.

My thanks to Machine Era for sponsoring The Pen Addict this week.

ESCALA: Scale Ruler Fountain Pen by ēnsso (Sponsor)

If you are anything like me, then you love having great looking desk accessories. The ESCALA scale ruler fountain pen is exactly that, and much more.

Architects, designers, and engineers will find this fountain pen especially handy, as the barrel of the pen is encased in a black matte anodized aluminum ruler. The ruler features both metric and imperial measurements, making it easy to fit your marks to any scale required.

Held in place by an interior gasket when stored, the fountain pen features the same black matte anodized aluminum finish as the ruler. The black Bock nib ties it all together, and every pen also includes a standard international converter to fill with your ink of choice.

ēnsso has been making high-quality, great-looking pens for years, and are an experienced Kickstarter creator. The ESCALA has already hit its funding goal with 30 days remaining on the campaign, so now is the time to get this unique pen at 50% off its future price.

My thanks to ēnsso for sponsoring The Pen Addict this week.
