The handcrafted fountain pens by the German Stefan Fink belong to the most exquisite of writing instruments in the world. The quiet German artisan lets his collection of exotic woods take its time to mature, till it finally gets hand-turned to an exquisite fountain pen. Amaranth, African grenadille, rosewood or wild olive wood slices undergo a three-year drying, moving, and maturing process before they get meticulously drilled, hardened in a oil bath, and polished to a velvet tactile experience. The bespoke pieces are available from slender to voluptuous, tubular to conical, but never in that slim “haptic anorexia” form factor which causes convulsions over time. Maybe not the contemporary, but definitely the long-lasting yet timeless choice.
