messograf-pen-261×261

Your average guy uses an an average pen: unremarkable and cheap. It writes, and that’s the extent of its talents (maybe you occasionally use it to pensively chew on). But considering we all use a writing implement virtually every single day, it makes sense that aforementioned implement incorporates a little more into its repertoire. The Messograf pen is just that.  Actually it’s “just that” and a whole lot more, incorporating a ruler, calipers, tread gauge, thread scale…. the list goes on. It also happens to be a smooth refillable ballpoint, as well as fashioned from solid metal in a handsome utilitarian shape.   It’s a definite step up from a Bic, though some would make the argument writing in the dirt with a stick is a step up from a Bic.
