Redesigning the traditional pen from the ground up can be a major undertaking, it forces you to redefine how a simple object can be improved. Developing a writing instrument that defies all rules of what a pen looks like, and how you use it, has now turned into a reality through the latest Kickstarter campaign from TEC Accessories. The Ko-Axis™ Rail Pen leverages the benefits of a flat, wide, rectangular geometry and all-metal construction for unparalleled writing comfort as well as low-profile carry.
This unique geometry is only one benefit of the Ko-Axis™. The 4-1/2" length is optimized to deliver a fluid writing experience in your hand, yet remain incredibly compact for convenient everyday carry. The magnetic, twin-rail mechanism used to extend and retract the ink refill eliminates the need for a separate cap, while providing quick, one-handed actuation. Combined with an instant, no-tool refill replacement method using a standard D1 ink refill, the Ko-Axis™ Rail Pen rewrites the rules on what a pen should look like. Its elegance, comfort, and simplicity will make you wonder why this never happened sooner.
The Ko-Axis™ Rail Pen starts at $44 and is now live on Kickstarter. My thanks to TEC Accessories for sponsoring The Pen Addict this week.
