Spaceflori release
Spaceflori flown artifact writing instruments

Discover the ultimate space artifact pen

Spaceflori fine writing instruments presents the ultimate "must-have" for any space and aviation fan.

A classy pen with an incorporated flown artifact from some of the most historical space flights in history: first American in space, Alan Shepard; first men on the moon, Apollo 11; and the the incredible story of Apollo 13.

We have kept the pens in a very simple and classical style with the artifact encapsulated in the top of each pen, clearly visible at all times.

These pens, unlike other cheap promotional items, are crafted out of solid metal with a metal winding. Ink cartridges can be easily replaced by regular cartridges available at almost any office store worldwide.

Whether given as a gift or used by yourself, you will be surprised by the weight and quality of the pen that ranges in the same class as known high end pens from other luxury brands.

Each pen set includes a ballpoint pen and a fineliner and comes with a complimentary notebook. All editions are limited and numbered.

Of course, both pens in the set have authentic flown artifacts from the mission you choose - so you are getting two flown artifacts in each set!

Pen set details:

  • Each set contains a ballpoint pen and a fineliner crafted in solid metal
  • Upper and lower barrel in high gloss lacquer with details in full chrome finish
  • Mission engraved on the middle ring of each pen
  • Encapsulated flown artifact displayed in end cap of each pen
  • Numbered certificate of authenticity with each set
  • Attractive gift box
  • Complimentary notebook
  • Regular replacement cartridges available at any office store
Available in four limited editions:

Apollo 11 and Apollo 13.

They are really beautiful sets and well worth the price as pens even if they didn't have a flown piece in them!

Just got a set of these for Christmas from my awesome and thoughtful wife. I'm amazed to have part of Apollo 11 in my possession!

I'm very curious, though: How was the heat shield material from Apollo 11 obtained by private parties? Just wondering about the history of it.

I know the shield is still present on the capsule at the Smithsonian, so guessing small sections were removed for testing?

Any history of the path of these pieces would be really interesting.
