Do we need another pen from Kickstarter? Probably not. Did we back the Apollo Technical Pen and Tri-Scale anyway? Of course. Why? We have a problem with gorgeous writing instruments. The Apollo has a lot in common with the first Kickstarter pen because of the pen/ruler combo, refills and materials, but it approaches the solution to the common pen in a completely different way. There are stylus and pencil options. A unique blend of stainless and titanium. Changeable rings so you know which pen is which. Satin, Black and Brass finish options. Each one of those things is extremely important to us, but the product really gets cool when you add in the Tri-Scale. It functions much like an architect’s ruler, but also has a rotating top that allows you to store three Apollo pens inside the scale itself. Even if you don’t need a ruler all that often, it’s useful for pen loss prevention.
