If you’re seriously considering getting a really one-of-a-kind writing instrument to give to yourself or to someone who you think will appreciate pens as a gift, then you’d really have to look at Kristoph Krisjans’ ManualPen. It writes on almost anything. But its true essence is in the way it is designed and fabricated.
Unlike other designs of writing pens that come with several components that include the barrel, a spring mechanism, the tip, and a few other elements, the ManualPen comes as a single solid piece of CNC-machined metal. It is this single metal construction that gives the ManualPen remarkable structural rigidity. It’s a writing instrument that will never break.
The metals put into the construction of the ManualPen are not your ordinary metals, too. You’ve got a choice of stainless steel, brass, and copper, each of which can provide you with a very distinct elegant quality that shines through the day. No wonder Krisjans called it the everlasting pen. The combination of single-piece metal construction and the choice of metal make the ManualPen a true pen that lasts forever.
Designed to accommodate the equally-revolutionary Fisher Space refill, the ManualPen comes with a very different cartridge-loading mechanism. Where conventional pens have spring mechanisms to push the writing tip outside, the ManualPen allows you to slide out the refill cartridge and invert it to write. The tip of the Fisher Space pen refill stays out.
If you’re already familiar with how the Fisher Space works, you’ll know that it works in perfect harmony with the ManualPen. You can write underwater, in zero-gravity, upside down, or even in sub-freezing conditions. This is the pen that will keep on writing regardless of the environment or circumstance that you may be in. It’s beautiful and elegant in every sense of the word, too.
