Quality as a way of life by Mark Braun in the form of Design 08 fountain pen

Design 08 is the new creation of the designer Mark Braun. On behalf of Otto Hutt, with design 08 Mark Braun has developed a fountain pen that sets its own quality standards in terms of development, design, production and function. Design 08 embodies an attitude where expert craftsmanship and high-tech claim their place in our everyday culture, our way of life.

Design 08 is a play with proportions. The fine, regular guilloché lines characterize the entire ruthenium-coated surface. The guilloché pattern is rotated by 90° on the cap and on the rotatable, cylindrical finial. Thus serving as an indicator how to rotate for removing the cap and activating the innovative Pull+Twist function. The ingenious mechanical clip prominently exhibits the highest manufacturing precision that Otto Hutt puts into every part. The 18 ct gold nib and the individual number round off the exterior of design 08.

The styling of the section allows for sufficient grip for your fingers when writing. The section of the piston fountain pen is made of stainless steel, matt black and coated with PVD. The 18 ct gold nib is available in EF, F, M and B nib sizes. With its individual numbering, each design 08 fountain pen is truly unique. With the cap of design 08 closed, the individual number is in line with the back of the nib.

The cap is also cylindrical, with a concave top part. The mechanical clip is spring loaded with a steel spring, breaking through the recess on the top part. Cap and clip form a connection, as if the precision mechanics of the writing instrument were pushing outwards. Upon activation, the clip lowers into the recess on the top part.

Review from a customer"

I saw the Design 08 at a pen show where the dealer humorously described it as a German over-engineered fountain pen. I hesitated to buy it until I learned some more about it. After reading reviews and viewing some YouTube posts, I bought from Pen Boutique. The pen is indeed a marvel of engineering. It is piston fill via  an internal piston and ratchet mechanism. You cannot open it to see the mechanism, but it seems to hold a LOT of ink. I got a medium non and it is smooth as silk…wonderful flow. The pen is machined from brass and then coated.  It is not painted, it’s a fused metal-on brass finish. By the nature of its manufacture, the pen is heavy but not uncomfortably so. The finger contact point on the pen has a machined texture so the pen does now slip out of your grip and the texture is comfortable for long writing sessions. There aren’t many fountain pens I use everyday, but the Desihn 08 and my Waterman Edson are my daily-use pens"
