PEN BOUTIQUE DEDICATES THIS PEN TO AN ICONIC SYMBOL OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION, REMINDING US OF THE INCREDIBLE THINGS WE CAN DO WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER
300 Numbered editions:
We are happy to create this fountain pen as it was our original design. Cap represents the Soyuz and barrel - the Apollo. Join them to create a single functioning unit!
The Space Race, an era of fierce competition between American and Soviet space programs, was bookended by two events: the launch of Sputnik in 1957, and the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in 1975. After almost 20 years of breakneck progress from both sides, which gave us the first man in space, the first spacewalk, the moon landings, and countless other achievements unimaginable a generation before, NASA and their Soviet counterpart the Soviet Academy of Sciences worked together on the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project to kick off a new age of international cooperation in space.

The bottom section's minimal markings, bare metal finish, and cross-shaped R-4D attitude control thrusters represent the exterior of the Apollo CSM, the same craft which carried the crew of Apollo 11 to and from the moon just 6 years prior.
Bridging the two sections representing each spacecraft is a grey section representing the APAS, the most concrete example of the hurdles facing this mission and the inspiring efforts taken to overcome them
