The Inkless Metal Pen


Metal Pen

This is something of an oddity, an ink-less pen. The pen is made out of stainless steel and works by it’s special metal nib leaving a metal residue on the paper, so it the ink will never run out but I’m guessing the nib will wear down over time.

The metal pen is available from Grand Illusions for £14.99.

Isn’t this really a metal pencil? The action described is exactly how a pencil works only leaving a metal residue rather than graphite. Pens by definition use ink.

I’ve bought one of these pens, and the description fits it. It does feel like a crayon, and it has a writing noise like a pencil. However, pens generally can’t be rubbed out (it a general sense), hence giving it its name. Check for other variants on the pen, known as “beta,p”

Mind you, it is a tad lite on paper (just press harder), but never appears to wear down, as stated in the manufacturer’s guarantee.
