With how turbulent and scary the world has gotten as of late, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a new strain of space fever hasn’t been long to follow. One new piece of that zeitgeist puzzle is the Astrograph, a new luxury pen from watch brand MB&F and the pen-maker Caran d’Ache.
In case the name didn’t give it away, the Astrograph’s visual design obviously places it in the rocketship sphere of influence. It doesn’t actually fly into the air (or deep space), but it does have three tripod-like legs that activate via an internal mechanism and allow the pen to stand upright, as if awaiting the final countdown from mission control.
You can get a lot more information on the Astrograph pen at the official MB&F site right here, where you can also purchase it in your choice of three different finishes: high-gloss rhodium, sandblasted matt rhodium and anthracite ruthenium.
