    Default Stilform

    Normally I don't go in for advertising products on this site (or indeed any other) but I thought this was interesting.

    Stilform_Ink

    Looks to be a machined, faceted metal pen (aluminium or titanium I think) sporting a screw-in Bock nib. The interesting thing about the design, at least to me and hope others, is the cap closing mechanism. Not sure exactly how they did it, but a pair (at least) of neodymium magnets force the cap to snap on and automatically align the facets of the cap and barrel. Removing the cap requires only a slight twist to disengage the magnets.

    I though it was quite a neat application of the properties of magnets, and the pen looks like quite the contender to brands such as Kaweco. Aesthetically I quite like it too.

    It took a while to realize what it reminds me of. Apple pencil, of course.

    Doesn't seem too far off from an Ohto Dude (though there are a few obvious differences)

    There's a few 'features' I see there that wouldn't do so well for liquid ink getting a little jolt or spatter to the cap.

    And while the pen is 'durable' like say the Kaweco AL-Sports, it's still gonna be a mess (and if the fall is high enough to pop the cap off, the nib goes bye bye).
