TiPen

We’ve long been intriguied by Mont Blanc Pens and their refills, but price has always been a bit of an issue, particularly concerning the pen itself. Enter TiPen, a small, simple writing implement that’s perfectly compatible with Mont Blanc’s rollerball ink refills without the flash or price tag. Each TiPen is CNC machined from titanium for its high strength-to-weight ratio – without a refill, the empty shaft weighs about 12 grams, equivalent to 2.14 US quarters. It also features a screw-on cap, rubber o-rings to beef up the grip should you be so inclined, and goes through an optional, proprietary anodization process for a stunningly unique finish.
