The moon is the sun’s dream
On July 20th 1969, after two hours and thirty-one minutes of eternity, Buzz Aldrin climbed back into confined space of the lunar module, where he accidentally broke the key in the ignition and ended up having to jiggle around a pen tip in order to start the ascent engine that would enable him and Armstrong to take off from the moon.
Some 40 years later, Manuel Emch nurtures our childhood dreams by creating the MoonFighter, a new RJ – ROMAIN JEROME writing instrument that lives up to its space-inspired origins. He is thereby bringing to life a dreamlike symbol of a pen that served as a bridge between the moon and the earth.
This instantly appealing fountain pen radiates absolute aesthetic purity, while naturally commanding respect by its powerful lines.
From moon to earth… from Moon Silver to MoonFighter
Stemming from a meticulously executed fusion between moon dust (a certified sample) and silver, RJ is an alloy that is the exclusive property of RJ – ROMAIN JEROME. Designed on the basis of this alloy and also comprising authentic fragments from Apollo II, the MoonFighter will forever bear vivid testimony to its historical origins.
A technical check before takeoff
The curved, streamlined barrel of the MoonFighter is studded with 48 hand-fixed rivets and extends an irresistible invitation to savour the pleasure of writing. Conveying a blend of aesthetic perfection and historical inspiration, MoonFighter features a forward-jutting profile with toothed plates like the ventilation apertures on an aircraft fuselage.
The pen is topped by a cap equipped with three small blades, engraved with the initials RJ and tipped with a titanium point endowing the MoonFighter with an airy feel and user-friendliness that make light of gravity.
Nestling in its docking station with an evocative winged design, much like a fighter plane awaiting takeoff, the MoonFighter is one of those rare objects capable of inspiring both admiration and desire.
Conquering the MoonFighter writing instrument is like taking the controls of an aesthete’s dream, issued in limited editions of 888 for each of its three versions: Black Metal, Vintage and Heavy Metal.
