The XS is a fountain pen designed with mobility in mind. It is a super compact writing instrument that grows into a regular size pen when posted. When capped, it is one of the smallest fountain pens in the world, which makes it ideal for everyday carry (EDC). The cap is secured to the barrel by performance-engineered o-rings that allow fast capping and uncapping. Ultem is ideal for this system because its flexibility allows for a very smooth action.
Ultem is an engineered plastic also known as Polyetherimide (PEI). It is an amorphous plastic that offers high strength, excellent chemical resistance with a high service temperature. It has a distinct amber-to-transparent color. It is commonly used in autoclave applications, high voltage circuit breaker components, and jet engine components. In the fountain pen world, it is used because of its attractive amber color and excellent mechanical properties. It is stronger than acrylic and other resins and excellent for precision machining.
