Muji makes just about everything, and they do a damn fine job with every single piece. It should come as no surprise to you that the pen obsessed Editors at Cool Material are most excited right now about their new line of Compact Aluminum Pens. Each one of the available options (fountain, ballpoint and mechanical pencil) is obviously made of aluminum and compact, but you can attach the cap to the end of the pen, or pencil, and write full size. What we’re telling you is that Muji made a good looking collection of functional writing instruments out of lightweight aluminum, and each costs less than a trip to the movies. We literally have nothing bad to say about these things.
