Refillable Technical Pens
The Apollo Specialized Pen is a metal barrelled pen made to be properly used with a multitude of refills, such as the previously popular Hi-Tec-C. The body and limit are manufactured from titanium and also the nib and hold are made of metallic.
It was in addition a pen which had a lot of publicity and a good deal of hype.
Both of these facets – buzz and tardiness – designed that I would, inevitably, be let down whenever I finally opened the container.
It is, in the end, just a pen.
You can find many customisation choices. You are able to replace the coloured band and you can install a stylus tip on the end of this barrel. You can find three nibs various diameters make it possible for different refills to be used. (Apollo call the tiny bits you change to support the refills in position nibs. I’m not sure that is the very best term for all of them but I’m going with it because I can’t consider everything better.) The refill is held solidly set up by a spring in the barrel. It all works very well. I’ve attempted the Pilot Hi-Tec-C refill that comes with the pen and a Pilot Juice 0.5mm refill the one I’ve made a decision to stay with for now. (See the Kickstarter page for the full variety of suitable refills.)
Once I’d got regularly the realisation that this pen had beenn’t planning to alter my life permanently we began to see that it is, actually, actually very great. All parts fit together completely without wobbles or wiggles anywhere. The barrel is well weighted and balanced, the knurled hold is comfortable, the complete pen seems solid and reliable and reassuring.
The limit pushes to shut and does therefore really solidly. In reality it will take some work to have it down once again. It form of articles although not very well. The video is sturdy and clippy.
As it happens that is a perfect pen. This a week ago I’ve tried it over any kind of pen-that-isn’t-a-fountain-pen and when or twice I’ve picked it up instead of a fountain pen. It is precision made and made with attention and it reveals. Over time the hype and the delay will diminish and all sorts of which will be left is it extremely beautiful pen. A pen that won’t replace the globe but does provide it a little pleasure.
