When you want to go all out with your writing utensil, look no further than the Cybergraph 2000 from Jean Pierre Lepine. This pen came out in 2000 to mark the end of the century, and commemorate the beginning of the new millenium. It has won several awards for it’s styling. With only 888 made (of the carbon fiber version), and priced at $2,750, you won’t find won’t find one of these lying in just any office.
The pen comes with a black leather case, ink-pump, and screwdriver in a gorgeous see-through maplewood box:
The pen comes with an external ink pump because Jean Pierre Lepine did not want the user to have to dip the pen in ink. The design has quite a bit of technology involved behind it. It’s asymmetric so that the center of gravity lowers in order to give the pen a tumbler effect so it won’t roll. Jean Pierre Lepine spent months researching, testing, and perfecting the Cybergraph 2000.
I found this pen available at two locations online, Airline International and Fountain Pen Hospital. Airline International listed the price as $2,750, while you must call Fountain Pen Hospital for price and availability (1-800-253-7367 or 212-964-0580).
If you happen to get one of these, make sure to get in touch and send me some pictures.
