Clicky Cornflower Blue Aluminium Ballpoint Pen
The up-market and all-metal alter ego of the Japanese plastic, orange classic from 1973, this ballpoint is a good middle ground between disposable and a "proper" pen. We have found the seemingly unimportant side click mechanism to be particularly satisfying and also characteristic of early Japanese ballpoint design - push the button down to engage the ballpoint, then release the pen using the side click. The powder coated barrel also boasts an agreeably soft, satin texture, and a good weight in hand - a nice writing companion.
