Creator of the first 3D printed fountain pen in the world
 

Unique highly detailed fountain pens

Pjotr creates small series and single pieces of sculpture-like fountain pens using state-of-the-art technologies like high grade software and additive manufacturing (3D printing in metals).

Pjotr (designer and technologist Rein van der Mast) likes you to devise the theme you like best. And then, with your approval, he generates a true sculpture that matches your theme, digitally at first and tangibly in the end. This always results in a striking collector’s item, as well as an outstanding and appealing piece of writing equipment.

Pjotr also likes you consider his limited editions, having each pen uniquely numbered and a design that has no equal.

State-of-the-art

The first fountain pen made by Pjotr is in itself a brilliant collector’s item. Its theme is Cavalry. Not only the theme and elaboration are totally unique, the techniques that enable him to build it are also very challenging and highly innovative, if not to say revolutionary. The result is a remarkably detailed three-dimensional shape, in the form of a classic sculpture created by a jeweler. It is the first 3D printed fountain pen in the world, revealed in 2013.

Pjotr fountain pens are typically made of titanium, which makes them exceptionally light and very strong. Other metals, including gold and platinum, as well as ceramics are also available to additive manufacturing (3D printing in metals).

Pjotr provides each pen with a luxurious 3D printed, highly unique cassette or pen case.

18K Solid Gold 3D Printed Fountain Pen & Nib

ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands – The Dutch designer and technologist Rein van der Mast is disrupting how fountain pens are made. Instead of relying on proven technology, in 2013 he started 3D printing titanium fountain pens and nibs. Today he started 3D printing both in 18K solid yellow and white gold.

There is the Spica Virginis, his latest design, resembling an ear of grain and named after the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, where in ancient drawings the virgin holds a bundle of grain ears. In 18K yellow gold the color perfectly matches the color of grain.

The pen is also available in 18K solid white gold. Van der Mast: “This type of white gold is developed for 3D printing, selective laser melting in particular. It is very white, and more important, it is very hard, eliminating the need for a rhodium coating.” He emphasizes that this is particularly useful for nibs. Van der Mast is the only one in the world 3D printing nibs and holds a patent application on it.

Van der Mast: “For people who prefer the lightness of titanium, which is less than 1/3 of the density of gold, we offer our titanium version plated with a thick layer of 24K gold with a tiny amount of cobalt for better wear resistance.”

First review of the 3D printed titanium nib

A beta version of the Spica Virginis was tested by Dries Bleus. About the nib:
"The medium-broad nib is ground to a stub and it writes like a dream. Being titanium, it offers a good amount of bounce, and some line variation if necessary. The feed provides a generous flow and keeps up well."
