Pininfarina Cambiano is a beautiful pen that writes forever

You're expecting me to get excited about a pen?It's not just any pen. It's the Pininfarina Cambriano Inkless pen.

Isn't Pininfarina that design firm that works with cars?Yes, including such iconic Ferraris as the Daytona and the F40

It's a pen that doesn't need ink? Do you fill it with lead then?Nope. This is where it gets magical. You see, it has an alloy tip that oxidises the paper it touches.

And here I thought the pen was made of fairy dust.Sorry to disappoint you, but this Cambiano is fashioned from wood and alumnium. It gets its name and styling from Pininfarina's latest concept-car, an electric car that manages 500 miles.

What else should I know about it?It has the precision of a very sharp pencil without getting a dull nip and it comes in two finish choices:light colour satinised and dark glossy.

Yes, I want it. I want it for my own. Too bad. The pen is currently sold out but you could keep hoping they'll restock the pen in the near future. For only €89.90 (RM369) you would likely never need another pen again. Unless you lose this one, of course. You idiot.
