S.T. Dupont is delighted to announce the launch of "Space Odyssey", the official and much anticipated S.T. Dupont limited edition collection for 2021. S.T. Dupont brings to life, in their own way, the great history of space conquest and travel. Its latest design, channels this grand and magical theme with superb everyday objects, worthy of works of art.
Who has never dreamed of traveling to space? Of contemplating the Earth from the atmosphere, that place above our heads that is so attractive and yet unknown? Young and old have all imagined themselves at least once in Neil Armstrong’s space suit, jumping around the moon in the interstellar night. Movies such as "A Space Odyssey" or "Interstellar" have kept this fantasy alive in the popular imagination, as have Elon Musk’s SpaceX projects, the explorations of new terrains by Mars Rover and NASA. They seem to bring us a little closer to that elusive dream.
S.T. Dupont pays attention to the smallest details using natural lacquer and palladium finishes to make these everyday objects unique. For this original design, the designers and engineers at S.T. Dupont were inspired by the galaxy, past and current space missions, rocket design and space suits. Every item is presented in prestigious black lacquered boxes and the collector set comes in a packaging reminiscent of the galaxy.
Inspired by the magic of space, the Prestige Collection is intended as an ode to the Milky Way. Every detail has been designed to achieve absolute refinement, thanks to natural lacquer, palladium, and micro-engravings. On the rocket-shaped writing instruments, a galaxy effect is given to the natural lacquer with the use of a pearlescent spray on a black background and an iridescent spot of glittery lacquer. These pieces are crowned by a globe in transparent glitter-sprinkled resin.
The Prestige Writing Kit is issued in 399 numbered editions. In addition to the prestige fountain pen, this set also comes with a brass base recalling the launch pad of a rocket before take-off, a bottle of ink, and a rollerball grip section.
The solid brass fountain pen features a converter filling system and is enhanced with S.T. Dupont's 18k gold nib, and comes with a rollerball conversion kit as well.
Through its entire "Space Odyssey” edition, S.T. Dupont recalls that, with hard work and determination, the greatest and most ambitious goals are achievable, including space conquest. And now they are within reach...
Please allow us up to 2-3 weeks for shipping of this set. Please also note we are unable to accept a return of this pen for any reason once it has been used with ink. Please thoroughly inspect and dry test the pen before use.

Reviews & Questions
How do I fill a fountain pen with ink?
It depends on the pen's filling mechanism, which you can find in the Technical Specs section above.
Here's a quick definition of the most common filling mechanisms:
Cartridge - A small, disposable, sealed plastic reservoir that holds fountain pen ink. These come pre-filled with ink, and typically you just push to insert them into place and you'll be ready to write!
Converter - A detachable and refillable ink reservoir that allows you to use bottled ink in a cartridge-accepting pen. Typically you will install the converter into the grip section, dip the nib/feed into the ink, and twist or pull the converter knob to draw ink into the converter. Here's a video for how to fill a cartridge/converter pen using a LAMY pen as an example.
Eyedropper - A pen that utilizes the entire barrel as a reservoir for ink. Ink is directly filled into the barrel, allowing for a high ink capacity. Here's a video on how to do it!
Piston - A type of filling system that uses a retracting plunger inside a sealed tube to draw ink into a pen. They are typically either twist or push-operated. These pens cannot accept cartridges or a converter, and only fill from bottled ink.
Vacuum - A push-style piston that uses pressure to fill the large pen body with ink. They seal the ink chamber when closed, making it ideal for flying without risk of leaking.

How do I clean a fountain pen?
It depends on the filling mechanism, but it mostly comes down to flushing it out with water, and sometimes a little bit of Pen Flush if the ink is really stuck.
It's a bit easier to show than to tell, so we've put together a few quick videos showing you the process:
How often do I need to clean my fountain pen?
We recommend a good cleaning every 2 weeks, and any time you change ink colors.
Water will usually do the trick, but we recommend you use our Goulet Pen Flush if the ink has been left in the pen for a while and could have dried up, or when you’re switching ink colors.
My pen won’t write! What do I do?
First things first... make sure you have ink in the pen! Be sure that the ink cartridge or converter is seated properly in the pen, and that you aren't out of ink.
We always recommend you give your pen a good cleaning first, using our Goulet Pen Flush, or a drop of dish soap in some water. New pens often have some machining oil residue left in the feed, so a good cleaning often does the trick first.
If that still doesn't work, try priming the feed. This consists of either dipping your pen nib and feed in ink, or forcing ink from the converter down into the feed.
If it’s still not working after that, please reach out to us so we can help!
