About

ESCALA

After successfully launching three writing instruments on Kickstarter, we are proud to present ESCALA; a scale-ruler fountain pen conceived for architects, engineers, and designers with 12 graded metric and imperial scales.

SCALES

Metric

1:20, 1:50, 1:100, 1:200, 1:400, 1:500

Imperial

1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1

The 1:100 scale could be used as a regular centimeters ruler while the 1" scale could be used as a regular inches ruler.

100% SPACE-GRADE ALUMINUM

ESCALA is expertly machined from a solid block of space-grade aluminum anodized in matte black with white contrasting laser engraving scale markings. 

WRITING

ESCALA is equipped with a German-made nib of the highest quality manufactured by Peter Bock Co. Nib sizes available are: fine, medium, and broad.

ESCALA comes with a Schmidt K5 ink converter to use with bottled ink. The pen also accepts short and long standard international ink cartridges.

  • length: 130 mm / 5.12"

Risks and challenges

We have worked on the design of ESCALA for the last 6 months. Along the way, we produced countless 3D-prints and machined prototypes. After carefully refining the design, we are ready for mass production but need your help to meet minimum order quantities. We have all the suppliers lined up and would commence production soon after the Kickstarter campaign ends. This is our 8th Kickstarter campaign so we are aware of potential problems and delays. For this reason, we have carefully analyzed our timeline and are confident that we will deliver an outstanding product. Thank you for your support!
