I’ll never advocate spending $2,700 on a pen that just writes, but at least the new Evolution model from Conway Stewart has a clever trick up its sleeve. Apparently balance plays an important factor when it comes to choosing a pen, and the Evolution is the first model to feature a “revolutionary” system that allows you to adjust the pen’s center of gravity to suit your handwriting style. There’s no specifics on how it works, because apparently the system took Conway Stewart three years to develop, but I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that there’s a weight inside that can be moved from the front to the back.
But the adjustable weight system probably doesn’t contribute to that $2,700 price tag as much as the engraved solid silver body, and the fact that just two hundred of these will be produced.
