When it comes to pens, you’ve got a lot of different avenues you can go. You can go cheap and plentiful (think the ones stocked at the office) that are just replaced whenever it breaks, runs out, or is lost. You can get very compact (and sometimes weapon-ish) ones if you’re going the tactical EDC route. There are also very high-end luxury pens, made of exotic materials and the like. So, in many ways, they’re a lot like watches. Well, the pen I ran across on Kickstarter kind of takes the best of many categories – made of metal (so it lasts forever), takes standard refills, is sleek and minimal, and is built right here in the good ol’ US of A. Given the decided lack of a name on the KS page, I’m just going to call this The Pen from Modern Fuel.
