David Oscarson Take It To The Limit

David Oscarson Take It To The Limit

Take it to the Limit is the 36th collection in the David Oscarson™ series of Limited Edition writing instruments. Produced in six primary color variations, each will be limited to an aggregate production of 100 pieces.
Hand-crafted in solid Sterling Silver, the TITTL collection captures elements of our favorite automobiles, the thrill of driving, and our love for the open road. TITTL speaks to our drivers’ “need for speed,” which was considered, along with Petal to the Metal, as a name for the collection. However, because this collection is for our fellow fossil fuel enthusiasts, TITTL was the only appropriate name choice as this decade may be our last chance to “Take it to the Limit” in our gas-powered
vehicles “one more time...”
Car fans will appreciate the gear shift image in high relief on the top of the crown; the clip is an elongated piston and the Guilloche dials on the cap display speedometer, tachometer, oil, engine temperature, and fuel.
Similar to the Koi and Sea Turtle collections, which featured “Mock-i-e” techniques in Guilloche and Hot Enamel, the TITTL collection (also crafted from solid Sterling Silver) displays a Carbon Fiber Guilloche-engraved pattern underneath the various colors of Hot Enamel. Opposite the racing stripes on the barrel is a number 1, and the engraving on the gripping section reads “If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough”.

David Oscarson has been creating luxury fountain pens since 2000 when he launched his eponymous brand with the limited edition Henrik Wigstrom Trophy pen collection.

“The biggest challenge today is helping people remember what a signature means: that it is an extension of one’s self,” says Oscarson. “Much is electronic today, including communication, but I always prefer talking on the phone to texting, and visiting in person to the telephone – old-fashioned, maybe, but much richer, and in my mind, much more rewarding.”

He takes this same mindful approach to the production of his pens. The use of hand-rendered guilloche and enamel, traditional art forms also seen in watchmaking, are emblematic of the brand, and Oscarson takes great care in keeping their quality pure. For example, he makes it eminently clear that the metal parts of his pens are guilloche, as opposed to stamped, since the resulting pattern reflects light ...
