The Yoda pen was so much fun, I had to get another one. This is the R2-D2 ASTROMECH Droid Medium Tip fountain pen from Shaffer. Someone asked how is Shaffer still around >>470, and upon reading the fine print I found an important note for air travelers: Note for air travelers; changes in pressure during flight may cause fountain pens to leak unless they are carried vertically, with nip pointed up, with cap on. The paper also mentions that Shaffer is now a brand owned by A. T. Cross Company. The mystery is solved. Now we know how Sheaffere stayed in business, and how Cross remains competitive. Slovanian labor with fantastic workmanship is really catching the attention of the pen community.
