The Studio Neat Mark One »

The boys at Studio Neat have done it again:

We are back again with a new project that pairs perfectly with it: Mark One, a minimal, durable, retractable pen.

This whole journey started when we discovered a fantastic refill, beloved in the pen world: the Schmidt P8126 rollerball. It quickly became our favorite, so we thought, “we should make a great pen for this refill.” So that’s what we did.

I have an early, hand-built version of this pen, and it is as satisfying to own and use as Dan and Tom say it is. There’s no logo, no unnecessary details and is comfortable to use even for long periods of time. If you’re looking for a nice pen to add to your life, the Mark One should be it.
