Filipino fountain pen brand Kasama has revealed a new unibody model, the Kalayaan, on Monday.
And they chose the perfect day, the Philippines’ 125th Araw ng Kalayaan (Independence Day) to make the announcement.
“It has long been our dream to produce our very own nib, feed and filling system. We took the dream a little further and put it all into one pen,” wrote in a Facebook post.
The pen features an integrated nib that accommodates a custom-made feed. It also has with bolt piston filling system which features “triple o-rings, a failsafe leak catch channel, and a safety lock.”
Each component of the all-original patent-pending pen is “independently designed and developed” by Kasama, with the combination allowing absolute freedom for users who want to customize their writing experience.
Kasama Kalayaan fountain pen prototypes might see action early as August in a small exhibit, Kasama owner Mark del Rosario told Pen Noob. Production is projected for the end of 2023.
Kasama launched in 2018 as the first Filipino-made fountain pen in the market. It currently has two models: the inaugural Una (meaning first), and slimmer Tala (star).
