Slightly longer than a standard key, the NanoPen brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, “world’s smallest”. As its creators say, they really mean it when they say the NanoPen is the world’s smallest fully functional, robust pen.
With a tungsten carbide tip that is 9 times tougher than stainless steel and the much-vaunted titanium, the NanoPen is guaranteed to last more than several lifetimes. This allows you to pass on this elegant, albeit miniaturized masterpiece of a writing instrument to several generations down the line. But perhaps more importantly, such features in a writing instrument simply underscore the fact that it is the kind of everyday carry that will never back down from the toughest jobs.
The super-strong tungsten carbide tip makes it surprisingly effective in opening packages, ripping through the adhesive tape that is preventing you from accessing whatever is inside the box. It’s perfect for puncturing items that you simply want to open such as a stubborn pack of snacks that won’t easily tear off. The NanoPen can easily open it for you.
After all that abuse, you can still rely on the NanoPen to deliver perfect lines and strokes on paper and almost every other writing surface imaginable. The tungsten carbide ball is engineered to have the shape of a perfect sphere, allowing it to never lose grip of any writing surface. This super-miniature ball is an engineering feat. More than 50,000 pits and polished surfaces are connected by ingeniously and meticulously machined channels to create a latticework on the surface of the sphere. You may see it as one shiny, glossy ball, but it is actually a miniaturized globe wire frame.
The NanoPen is unusually small. You’d really have to get used to its small size especially if you’re more accustomed to the feel of a wider and longer ball pen barrel in your hands. It takes a great deal of getting used to, but once you’ve mastered it you’ll never go back to the traditional ball pens.
It’s small yet functional and has that elegance to it you won’t be ashamed to show off.
