Introducing the Gravitas Ultemate Vac, a groundbreaking design and Gravitas' inaugural venture into complex filling systems. This fountain pen redefines durability, incorporating titanium in key areas to ensure longevity, addressing common weaknesses found in other vacuum pens. ULTEM resin is a high performance polyetherimide thermoplastic (PEI) - used in the manufacturing process of circuit boards, sterilisation equipment and most notably in the making of aircraft parts, it offers high strength and stiffness, a broad chemical resistance, making it expensive and used for only high demanding applications.

Despite its robust construction, the fountain pen remains lightweight, featuring a transparent Ultem section that allows for easy monitoring of ink levels in the secondary chamber. Easy to clean and maintain since the whole design is put together using threads and gaskets, different from other vacuum pens assembled using glue.

The 25mm-long section, tapering from 11.9mm to 10.2mm in width, provides a comfortable grip that is well known by fountain pen users - the hour glas shape. The nib is offered in both steel and 14k gold variants, both designed and manufactured by Gravitas. For 14k gold nibs Gravitas offers ebonite feeders and for steel nibs abs plastic feeders.

With a generous capacity exceeding 2.5ml and a secondary chamber holding 0.7ml, the Ultemate Vac offers ample ink for extended writing sessions. The second chamber is equipped with a shut-off valve to prevent ink mishaps, ensuring a mess-free experience. When using the Ultimate Vac it is recommended for the end knob to be unscrewed, thus offering a more constant and wet ink flow. 

Designed for convenience, this pen can be posted and disassembled for thorough cleaning. A crucial note: when removing the nib, apply silicone grease carefully to the threads to maintain water-tight integrity and prevent ink spills.

Elevate your writing experience with the innovative and resilient Gravitas Ultemate Vac.

Excellent pens - Outstanding service and support

I have purchased the Gravitas Sentry in brass and the Gravitas Ultemate with the gold nib. I love the weight and the patina on the Sentry. When I received it it was shiny and yellow. I’ve had it for about a month now and it is now a beautiful caramel color - incredible! Smooth buttery feel with the broad nib. I love everything about this pen. I just received the Ultemate with a medium gold nib. With the Ultem and the ability to see all of the high quality internals - it is a beautiful pen as well. The medium nib is a very wet writer with just a touch of feedback - depending on how I am writing - but mostly very soft and springy. The medium nib writes like a very wet broad. I am really enjoying writing with it as it shows beautiful extreme shading with the Sailor ink studio 280. Emy provides a fantastic personalized service with a handwritten note in the shipment and is super attentive and I can not recommend him enough. He really cares about service. I will purchase from him again.

The ultemet bet I made `

This is an extremely lightweight pen. holds a ton of ink, the NIB is ULTRA Smooth. Based on the feedback ULTEM is durable so I am expecting this pen to be.
I would highly recommend getting this pen from Pen Ventur. It was tested thoroughly before sending it to me.

Ultem or ultimate!

Just received this gorgeous pen. Really substantial in the hand (haven't yet gotten around to inking it up yet, soon!). The colour is unique, in my pen collection for sure, and there will no doubt be other Gravita pens in my future. Way to go, Gravitas, and many thanks to Pen Venture for great service in getting this pen half way around the world safely.

Great vac filler

The Gravitas Ultem Vac-Filler is a beefy pen. It lets you know that it is well built and is going to last. It's a great writer. And as an added bonus, DHL let me learn about an important Romanian holiday and how it affected their operations. I have to admit that I know next to nothing about Romania in modern times and it all worked out. And I got an excellent pen from a well-run pen retailer.

Great demonstrator!

This yellow demonstrator just looks so nice. It is solid and very comfortable. And nicely tuned by Emy as usual. This is the kind of pen why you start loving demonstrators... And thanks for the excellent service (as usual ...).
