Traditional. Sustainable. Modern.
The Wink Pen was born from the desire to create a sustainable alternative to the everyday writing utensil. While the basis for the branding, WINK, was originally derived from the concept of using "wine as ink", the pen can actually be loaded with virtually any liquid that possesses a staining property. Our pens have been engineered to adapt to very low viscosity fluids, which allow users to easily write with not only traditional, but also non-traditional 'inks'. The Wink Pen can very much be characterized as a hybrid between a dip pen and a fountain pen, in that it is both manually fed and also contains an in reservoir.
In addition, the current design makes each of our writing nibs truly one of a kind, as they are individually hand crafted -- locally here in the United States!
The Wink Pen is built to be as modular and user friendly as possible. All components fit snuggly together with the use of rubber o-rings, and can be easily pulled apart and pushed back together for ease of cleaning. The piston design allows for a simple twist-to-refill and ink release system, making it an easy process to controllably unload and load the pen with various inks of your choosing.
