Modern fuel

You need a gift that reflects how much you value someone. You want something thoughtful, meticulously crafted - something that has a story behind it and is not just another “thing” they’ll never really care about. 

Modern Fuel is exactly what you didn’t know you were looking for. Each of our writing instruments are precision made down to the tiniest detail (which for us means within 0.0001 inches). Every piece is machined from a solid block of premium metal and hand-finished to perfection right here in the USA. We pride ourselves in a writing instrument unlike anything else you’ve experienced - something that is worthy of gifting on the most special of occasions. Veteran-owned by a former U.S. Army Blackhawk Maintenance Test Pilot, we understand the need for precision-made, heirloom-quality pieces that are made to last a lifetime. 

Whether it’s a retirement, promotion, or simply “just because,” you want a meaningful gift that’s unique and appreciated. We’ve done the hard work so that you can rest easily knowing that you’ve thoroughly delivered on the challenging task of finding exactly the right gift.  



Cut each piece out of a solid block of metal

First the cone and the body are cut out of a solid block of premium metal independently. This gives us the overall shape of the pencil and parts we can now work with.


Assemble the pencil

Once we have the cone and the body, we thread each of them to screw the solid pieces of premium metal together. The fit is already impressively snug, for most manufacturers this would be “good enough.” But, for Modern Fuel, we want to ensure the pencil is flawless.



With the full pencil assembled, we run the piece through the lathe at an extremely high speed. This gives the metal a smooth finish and mates the cone and body so they appear as a single unit. This process results in a pencil that is completely unique. No cone will perfectly fit the body like the two mated together in the production process.


Finish the one-of-a-kind product

Finally, the pencil has its custom interior parts that fit the body perfectly added and tightened. Then, your unique pencil is hand-finished, inspected to exacting standards, and packaged up.


Highest quality metals


Bronze has long been used as a durable metal for ship fittings and diving equipment. We’re the only pen out there that uses a solid piece of C52100 bronze, a high quality bronze often reserved for high-end luxury watches. Bronze has a significant weight to it, the user can truly feel the stable balance and all-metal construction. The bronze pen will have a matte patina over time as it ages. Choose bronze if you’re looking for a softer metal that ages with character offers an antique feel.


Stainless steel is a hard metal with excellent resistance to corrosion. It is one of the most common metals used in luxury watches for a highly practical clean, sleek look. The pen is heavy enough to feel the heft of quality, but not too heavy. It will not dull or patina over time, leaving you with the same pristine pen for decades to come. Choose stainless steel if you want a moderately heavy pen that will look as good as new in 50 years.

Highest quality metals


Copper has a distinct look and feel that ages with character. Often used for high end home finishings like faucets. Copper is a softer metal that will embody its usage and patina over time. For the discerning user looking for a pen with heft, copper is our heaviest pen. Choose copper if you’re looking for a distinct metal with heft that ages with the user for a beautiful antique heirloom piece.


Titanium is as hard as steel and 45% lighter. Unaffected by fatigue, cracking, aging, or corrosion. Titanium is trusted for the toughest jobs on the planet, including use inside jet engines. The titanium pen is the lightest pen by far. Choose titanium if you want a light, nearly indestructible pen that will withstand even the harshest conditions and still look brand new.


“The Pen is everything you said it is. Working in the Aerospace industry for 40 years I have seen all types of hardware. Yours is truly Top Shelf material with precision fit and finish. Balance is perfect, and it writes with ease just like a quilt pen of yester year. I will be back to buy more for gifts for Nasa Coworkers. Super product made to last a lifetime and beyond.

modern fuel fountain pen

We didn’t want to make just any fountain pen. We wanted it to be something special. We decided that our machined fountain pen needed to be: 

A joy to use. 

Beautiful in any environment. 

Usable every day, everywhere, by just about anyone. 

If you think about it, that’s not an easy fountain pen to design. 

Everyone has different tastes not only visually, but from a use standpoint. Some people like clips, some don’t. Some people like to post the cap, some don’t. Some people like heavy, some don’t. Some people want to carry their pen, others want it to stay at their desk. Some people work in boardrooms, others work with their hands. How would we even begin to fit all of that into a single, well designed fountain pen. We were up for the challenge. 

The Modern Fuel Fountain Pen is the most versatile fountain pen available, while maintaining a classy design that looks great in the workshop or Boardroom.

modern fuel adjustable bolt action pen

A bolt action pen is simply where the bolt on the side of the pen is used to push a refill cartridge down and lock it into place. It's an incredibly reliable mechanism and just as satisfying to click into place. A well-made bolt action pen can withstand millions and millions of cycles and last more than a lifetime.



Our pen is the first of its kind. You can adjust the ink tip to extend closer or farther from the pen’s tip. This allows you to fine-tune your pen to fit your personal writing style. Extend the tip longer for a more slanted writing style. Retract the tip tighter for a more vertical writing style.


Our pen’s unique feature that allows you to adjust the tip length also enables the pen to accommodate nearly any standard ink refill. It can hold ink refills from 89mm to 116mm in length, which includes the overwhelming majority of full-size refills on the market. This includes popular ink refills like Fisher Space Pen, Pilot G-2, and many more.
