It’s rare that a pen design is truly new. Most pens we come across are some alteration of someone else’s design. That’s why the ManualPen is so intriguing. It’s a design we’ve never seen before. The body is machined from a solid piece of metal, meaning there are no mechanical parts prone to breakage. So how does it work? A cut out allows you to push the cartridge fully out of the body, flip it around, and proceed to write. The ManualPen accepts Fisher Space cartridges, so you get all the benefits those offer—performance in extreme conditions, upside down capabilities, all that jazz. Plus, the anti-roll body keeps the ManualPen from making its way across your desk after you put it down. You can back the pen on Kickstarter right now.
