Educated in jewelry design and fabrication at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Jac Zagoory found early inspiration as a metal sculptor, applying essential elements of design to his creations. After spending a year in the Asia and Europe, he began his "cylindrical obsession" with pens. Realizing the growing need for desk accessories that not only created order but also highlighted the individual, the artist began designing an extensive assortment of desk accessories that exist as art in and of themselves. With his vision, the office, the home, and the desk have become places where great beauty melds with function.

Measurements
7" L x .25" W x 1.5" H

Black ink. Pen contains a Fisher SPR4 cartridge (medium point/black ink); individual refills sold separately. Pen easily removed from "space shuttle" as needed.

My husband was very excited about it however when he went to use it he found that it was difficult to write on wood let alone any non-standard surface. He is a professional carpenter so I was hoping he'd be able to use it every day. He tried it a few times and, since it didn't work to his satisfaction, it's been sitting in one of our office drawers for 4 months. A great concept, just didn't work out for us.

      Was going to give this to my boyfriend's father, who's quite handy, but I ended up getting him something a bit higher quality. The packaging looks very cheap. Very disappointed. Wish I could return it.
