The pen mightier than the sword: Dutch designer releases titanium 3D printed fountain pen

Dutch designer Rein van der Mast has just announced his newest effort in the world of luxury fountain pens: the Spica Virginis, a titanium 3D printed fountain pen and nib. Printed on 3D Systems’ ProX DMP 300, the silver-coloured Spica Virginis weighs in at 32 grams, with a length of 150 mm and diameter of 22 mm. Itself resembling an ear of wheat, the Spica Virginis is named after the brightest star in the Virgo constellation, translated from Latin as “the virgin’s ear of [wheat] grain”, or the Virgin’s Spike.
