Ferris Wheel Press is a stationery lifestyle brand where the whimsical sights, sounds, and nostalgia of the carnival dances with the rat-tat- tat of a traditional print shop. FWP exists to share their love for printing and stationery, and do so by being creative and artful, deliberately tactile, and deeply personal. It is the FWP mission to create products that last a lifetime, and they achieve this by using the highest quality materials and designing products that are keepsakes, moving away from fast, disposable culture. Through thoughtful storytelling and timeless design, every Ferris Wheel Press product is made to be cherished and kept for generations – becoming a part of your own personal history. Each Brush fountain pen is handmade from copper, brass, and stainless steel for a well balanced yet substantial writing experience. Each intricate detail of the grip is now engraved to enhance the tactility and feedback of a design that is bold as brass.
The Brush Fountain Pen takes its namesake and familiarity from the contoured silhouette of an artist's paintbrush. This shape was designed for good balance in-hand, while remaining comfortable over a long period of time. These characteristics are valued by every modern day writer or illustrator wanting to use inspiring tools that function as well as they look. The satin collection takes inspiration from the most luxurious charmeuse satins, and comes swathed in a smooth matte satin finish, while
retaining its iconic silhouette.
Drawing parallels to the ferrule, traditionally a metal section that holds the bristles of a brush, the grip section of the Brush fountain pen plays the important role of securing the nib. The spirited etchings on the grip are inspired by the mechanical components of our vintage printmaking studio equipment; including the flywheel of a 1912 Pearl letterpress, and a fully functional Underwood typewriter – the 'original' modern method of typesetting. The fanning geometric lines are analogous to the type hammers of a typewriter, each carrying its own miniature metal type block, waiting to be activated. And like how the carriages of a ferris wheel support its riders, the cylindrical carriage of a typewriter transports its paper in a horizontal and circular fashion.

I know that the only way to decide whether you really like a pen or not is to hold it, which is kindof difficult to do over the internet, so I have a solution. Buy it. If you don't like it, ship it back (your cost and everything must be returned in like new condition), and I will give you a full refund. I don't think that you can get fairer than that.
