A handsome multi-pen that provides black and red ink, along with 0.5mm pencil tip, in a pleasantly weighted brass body.
Rather than sliding down the various pen colors from the top, this multi-pen features a clever knurling mechanism instead. Looking at the pen you'll find the top of its barrel marked with BLACK, RED, and 0.5. To deploy, simply hold the multipen perpendicular to the floor with the desired word facing upwards, and click down on the top. Slide your thumb over the ridged side-knock to retract and select another.
Its smooth matte finish, ridged grip area, and simple evocative design compliment its multifunctionality well. The click cap even slides off to reveal a mini eraser, and under that a place to refill your 0.5mm pencil lead.
