Matt Black 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 agreeable soft satin texture and good weight in hand - a nice writing companion.
