The Spitfire Pen

A limited edition of 100 fountain pens crafted using Duralumin (a form of aluminium) originating from 1940 Battle of Britain Spitfire “P7350”.

In celebration of the Spitfire’s sleek curves, the pen’s basic design features a gentle radius throughout, the cap being crowned by a propeller spinner, with the clip, made of bronze, in the form of a propeller blade. The overall effect comprises a triumphant amalgamation of form, function and history.

A collaborative project in conjunction with provenance brand, TMB Art Metal of London, to celebrate the Royal Air Force’s iconic aircraft, the Supermarine Spitfire, produced in time to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain in 2020.

A limited edition of 100 fountain pens crafted using Duralumin (a form of aluminium) originating from 1940 Battle of Britain Spitfire “P7350”.

In celebration of the Spitfire’s sleek curves, the pen’s basic design features a gentle radius throughout, the cap being crowned by a propeller spinner, with the clip, made of bronze, in the form of a propeller blade. The overall effect comprises a triumphant amalgamation of form, function and history.

Every pen will be engraved “Made of P7350”, in tribute to the metal of which it is formed, and limited edition numbered. The pens will be issued in a very high-quality case, this fitted with a plate cut from ex-P7350 Duralumin skinning, engraved with the pen’s details.

A suitable tribute to one of the finest and most iconic machines ever created, the Supermarine Spitfire. The polished Duralumin is very tactile to the touch, with a comforting warm feel. Due to re-using this 80 years old ex-Spitfire metal for a new purpose, minor surface imperfections from the casting process exist on many of the pens, but this somehow only adds to their uniqueness, fascination and charm. In addition, the beautifully crafted rose-gold colour bronze clips haven’t been plated or lacquered, so will tarnish – we leave it to the proud Custodians to either re-polish them to a bright finish or allow them to dull gracefully with age, this ultimately resulting in a deep rich brown patination.
