Only 20 The Original Ubik Limited Edition were made
The Ubik comes in a burned pinewood box, with a 30ml ink bottle of an beautiful exclusive anthracite grey, created by l'Artisan Pastelier (Califolio inks), for this LImited Edition.
The contrast between the box and the Ubik is striking:
- one represents sturdiness, strengh, robstness, the other utterly sober elegance. However, these contrasts are, in fact, the caracteristics of the Ubik altogether.
The Ubik is "dressed" in an elegant black material, and Matthieu keeps the secret it, which increases the mistery attached to this pen.
The roll stopper is a watch winder, coordonated with the 18K gold Bock XF nib (you can chose between Gold, Steel and Titanium nibs - all Bock).
As the eponymous book, the Ubik creates surprise, amazement, wondering.
The Ubik is an enigma: it looks like wood, it sounds like wood while beeing uncaped, but... no, it is not wood.
The touching of this pen is a ravishing one, and our fingers remember it even once we have put the Ubik to rest: a powedered touch, amazingly soft, undetectable, and above suspicion, when you look at it.
