The Alpha Pen is a hand crafted, hand machined pen, made by a machinist with a vision from California, and since every piece of the pen is designed and made by him, there is a personal pride that seems to come from the pen. Lovingly, each piece of this pen is crafted with the hope that great ideas and great change will be wrought from its inkwell. And for me, the style of the pen aligned with a battle that has been waging inside of me. The Alpha Pen, especially the non-gloss titanium version, is a very industrial pen. It’s heavy, with a lot of grooves that provide optimum control, and it’s made of thick, grey titanium metal.
The Alpha Pen is a high quality, very well machined product, with a unique look which is what truly sets it apart. It is a truly nice writing pen, but it’s so much more than that. The pen was designed to go with Montblanc Fineliner cartridges, so there are no springs or threaded cartridges. The lid screws off with its precision threads, and you’re ready to write. Unscrewing another threaded top, where the pen extends, and you can easily pop in another ink cartridge. The outer shell of the Alpha Pen provides a nice ergonomic rippling affect and is completed with a heavy metal clip. This is the sort of pen that will go with me anywhere, especially when I’m roughing it in the wilderness.
