The James Brand The Benton
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift that can mean a lot to other people, especially to hospitalized kids and their respective families, you don’t need to look further than the Benton. It’s not a spectacular gift idea, but it’s definitely something you can use on a daily basis. More importantly, a tenth of every Benton sold will help in Franck’s fight.
As simple as its design may look, the Benton’s essence is in helping hospitalized children in the US. Ten percent of the proceeds are channeled to The Grand Appeal which effectively terminates at the stroke of midnight on the 30th. It’s a simple writing instrument that is made even more meaningful because of its worthy cause-driven design.
The Benton is just like any other ball pen that you may have already used, except for a few refinements in its design. Made of 304 stainless steel, the Benton feels sturdy and resilient in the hands, keeping the Schmidt 900 M cartridge inside the elegant barrel safe. It is not known if the Benton can accommodate other types of pen ink cartridges. But if one is familiar with the dimensions of the Schmidt 900 M, then it should be fairly easy to look for a suitable replacement or alternative.
The barrel comes with laser-etched grip pattern to help minimize slipping from the hands while also allowing for optimum control of your writing and scribbling. Atop the clicker mechanism is a lanyard loop that doubles as an easy-access mechanism for pulling the Benton from your pocket. For those who don’t like having a piece of lanyard dangling from their pockets, the bent steel clip should be a welcome addition to the Benton.
The Benton is a venerable writing instrument at heart. Its essence is, however, made even more meaningful because of a noble cause.
