This is a new design based on a racing car shock absorber idea. The cylinder cover is made from hand-turned chequer pattern acrylic to keep that racing theme!
This particular version I took inspiration from the ceramic section of a spark plug and replicated the grooves into the chequered acrylic.
The spring platforms actually compress the spring just like the real thing!
Once the chequered cap is unscrewed it can be fitted to the opposite end of the damper to help the pens ergonomics.
The refill is a Parker mini type available at most good stationary suppliers and can be changed by unscrewing the writing tip from the main body of the pen before pulling out the refill.
This is an ideal gift for the petrol-head in your family or friends!
