Looking for the perfect addition to your iMac-equipped desk? Tired of those old-school monochromatic fountain pens? Then you need to check out Levenger’s new Galaxy Pens. These pens sell for US$24.95 each, and come in a few iMac-like shades:
Welcome to the space age, Galaxy style. What gives these pens their playful appeal are their see-through caps and grips, splashed in cool summer colors.
Light and breezy, the Galaxy weighs barely an ounce and revolves around a lightweight plastic barrel. The barrel’s silver-colored finish also caps off the top, then rings the band and spring clip. For all its levity, the Galaxy is still grounded in good writing style. The roller ball is a smoothie, responding evenly to a light touch. The fountain pen comes with a cartridge and has a steel nib that doesn’t miss a beat.
