Pen Type-A

It’s rare to stumble upon a product that’s designed and engineered to absolute perfection, to the pinnacle of its own potential. Pen Type-A is just that type of writing implement. This minimal pen and its housing are both machined from solid stainless steel billets to extreme tolerances, creating a pneumatic seal between them: dropping the pen in its sleeve causes it to slowly drop down, and pulling it out emits a wholly satisfying popping sound. Fittingly, Pen Type-A uses the extremely precise Pilot Hi-Tec-C cartridge, features both imperial and metric laser-etched rulers on one side of its sleeve, and displays no branding of any kind anywhere, except underneath the back coin screw cap.
