Metal Pen

Palimpsest wrote before about the metalpoint as used in the hands of artists and scribes. Here is a modern metalpoint that calls itself a "metal pen". The "point" of pen, or its metal "nib" is made of a metal alloy and obviously there is no need for ink. It is 8cm long and leaves pencil-like marks on paper. The marks will not smudge and cannot be erased.

I did not have the chance to test such a writing instrument but it sure looks intriguing. It is offered by Grand Illusions and costs £13.99 or $20.23 excl. VAT and it promises to last for years and years and years.

See also another "metalpoint" pen, the Beta Pen, in Leigh Reyes blog, My Life as Verb.
