MB&F and Switzerland-based pen maker Caran d’Ache have created a pen that goes where no pen has gone before.
The Astrograph was four years in the making and includes a cap with retractable landing gear and a tiny ladder for a mini astronaut figure, as well as packaging that doubles as an over-the-top display stand. Yes, all this for a pen—albeit an awesome one.

It will be available in four different versions made from materials such as rhodium and ruthenium, with each being limited to 99 pieces.
With all of these bells and whistles, you wouldn’t expect the Astrograph to be cheap, but the price tag has reached the comically absurd level of $20,000 per pen – a price that should never be spent on a writing implement unless it is the only way to endorse a check for $20,001 or more.
