Here at B. Smith & Co. we are, quite literally, family. Originally established by Wayne (aka Dad) in 2008 as MeteoritePens.com, we were met with overwhelming demand for our unique and original writing instruments meticulously handcrafted using fragments of rare meteorite.
Soon after, increased public interest in space surrounding the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing led to a sell-out success we could have never imagined. Production slowed down in subsequent years as we focused on other personal endeavors, though the idea of a “meteorite pen” clearly resonated with pen manufacturers. Similar products came to market but they unfortunately fell into two extremes; either poor quality or simply inaccessible to most people because of out of this world prices. Frustrated with this lack of consumer choice, we redeveloped our Meteorite Collection to fill the void.
In early 2017, with the addition of Yan, our fabulous Office Manager, we ran a successful crowdfunding campaign to help evolve and expand our brand beyond the Meteorite Collection and into our new identity. We are as determined as ever to fulfill our original mission of offering consumers the most beautiful, historic, unique, and high quality handcrafted writing instruments available for sale at prices that remain reasonable.
We sincerely value your continued support and look forward to bringing you new collections for years to come!
