Until the middle of the 20th century, the fountain pen - first developed in the second half of the 19th century - was the standard writing instrument for official use and in offices, schools and teaching institutions. From the second half of the 20th century, it was increasingly replaced by ballpoint pens, a cheap mass product symbolizing the hectic, tasteless, aimless throwaway society.
Due to this development, there was a slow change in the character of the fountain pen. From being an everyday writing instrument, they became an exclusive object expressing individuality and personal lifestyle. Fountain pens are valuable companions to those who managed to protect their writing culture and who love to write a personal letter or sign an important document with "their own" fountain pen.
Stefan Fink's unique fountain pens perfectly embody this philosophy and are the absolute culmination of this history of fine individual writing utensils.
