The Pen Type-A is a minimal pen and ruler sleeve made for Hi-Tec-C ink cartridges. All of its parts are machined out of solid stainless steel and the sleeve is laser etched with ruler markings. A balance of simplicity, precision and substance, the pen feels smooth between your fingers. There’s no grip to tell your fingers where to go and it’s free of notches or grooves. The sleeve doubles as a straight edge and a measuring instrument. Its edges are clean and sharp, lasting evidence of the precise machining processes that were crucial to its construction. Drop the pen into the sleeve to watch it slide in slowly. Give it a final push so the sleeve can grip the pen and prevent it from slipping back out. Pull the pen out quickly and hear a light popping sound. These effects are a result of high tolerances between the pen and the sleeve that create a pneumatic seal, kind of like a piston. The stepped geometry of the tip leaves the contact point exposed so you can see what you are drawing. It is perfect for architects, illustrators and designers. To replace the ink cartridge, simply unscrew the back of the pen with a coin. The cartridge in this pen is a Black Pilot Hi-Tec-C 0.3mm cartridge. They are available in 4 line widths and over 30 colors.
