"Impulse three"is technically a fountain pen with unusual features. It uses a magnet on the orbitor arm holding it upright on the launchpad and the cap is magnetic for quick lift off and closure; it also uses a battery and wires and led lighting. The hourglass swings down to start the launch timing and is secured by a magnet when not in use. The body of the pen is shaped like the spaceship "voyager" from the television series, complete with passenger windows and the main deck.
When ready to write with the pen just pull it from the magnetic launch station. Since the cap is magnetic, just pull it off to expose the nib and start writing.The nib is german made iridium. The "ink level" gauges are custom made to order by heggart curios of england. A mechanical pump is included with your order. The pump filler can be refilled to a higher capacity than the standard cartridge. When you want to change ink types, just wash the pump out and fill it. There are hundreds of types of inks depending on your writing purpose. An ink cartridge is included and it is easily installed by unscrewing the nib and placing the cartridge into the chamber until you hear it snap, or "pop" which indicates the membrane of the ink supply has been pierced. The pump is also included. The voltage required to light the leds is calculated to a 9 volt battery and no resistor is needed. This useful writing instrument will certainly add "steampunk" qualities to any desk and provoke conversation. It is not intended to be used as a toy or for use by small children. Constructed by me by soldering and making a fully functional writing pen. I always include free gift wrap, with personalization (optional).
