ESCALA: scale-ruler fountain pen
Fountain pen with a cap that serves as scale-ruler for architects, engineers, and designers- graded with 12 metric and imperial scales.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, February 28 2019 6:08 PM UTC +00:00.
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.
1:20, 1:50, 1:100, 1:200, 1:400, 1:500
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.
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.

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!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
