It looks like a fountain pen, it writes like a fountain pen, yet the Parker Ingenuity isn’t a fountain pen. Despite the nib aesthetic, the Ingenuity uses the Parker 5th system, a soft tipped refill that adapts to your cursive style. We also love the weighty rubber finish and chrome trim.
Just Mobile AluPen Pro
Part retractable ballpoint pen, part tablet stylus, the AluPen Pro not only combines jobbing jottings with a geek benefit, it’s also the right size (its predecessor, the AluPen, was a stylus fashioned after an Argos catalogue pen). We like the new look and the new skills.
Lamy Pico Ballpen
Alas, there’s no projector, but the Lamy Pico’s rounded ends and bijou styling make it our nano pen of choice. Plus it comes with with a carry case to protect that red metallic finish from unsightly scratches.
Bolt Action Tactical Pen
The Bolt Action Tactical Pen boasts a “flat head for stabbing orcs” and a lock-and-load sequence for initiating writing duties. A milled aluminium finish adds to the military-grade feel.
This successful Kickstarter project houses a minimalist pen (which takes a stock Hi-Tec-C cartridge) in an oblong ruler case. And that’s it. Perhaps that’s why Pen Type-A’s strapline is “a minimal pen and ruler case.”
