EDC FOR THE PERPETUAL PROBLEM-SOLVER

EDC FOR THE PERPETUAL PROBLEM-SOLVER

Problem-solvers like us designers and tinkerers have quite a few tools of trade. We sketch, we ideate, we pull apart, we put together, and we solve problems, either by putting down ideas on paper, or by getting our hands dirty, actually engaging with the problem.

Made for designers, engineers, technicians, and the MacGyver in all of us, the Alt Pen is half pen, half multitool. Available in a wonderfully streamlined design, machined out of Aluminum and Stainless Steel, the Alt Pen works wonderfully as three things. A writing tool, a screwdriver, and a premium-looking item of absolute desire.

The Alt Pen’s svelte, slick design not only holds a premium ballpoint refill, it comes with storage and docking space for snap-on magnetic screwdriver bits, turning sketching tool into an actual tool. The refill snaps magnetically into a hexagonal housing, and can be removed to make space for a screwdriver bit, allowing you to go from drawing and writing things, to fixing things in a split second.

The pen comes in two variants, with multiple color options. An aluminum variant explores colors like slate and light gold, while a stainless steel option is heavier, sturdier, and comes in a self-colored chrome, and a rose gold variant. The pen is sleek, straight-forward, and comes with a magnetically attachable head which holds the refill or the screwdriver bits in place. The back of the pen comprises a hollow area into which you can store up to 4 screwdriver bits to be used in the future. Made for writing, freehand sketching, as well as force-rotating, the Alt Pen comes with a mono-knurled gripping area that feels great to hold lightly for drawing, as well as provides a good grip for tightening or loosening screws and bolts.

The Alt Pen may cater to one’s technical side, but it looks far from a technical tool, but rather follows the design lines of a high-end writing instrument. With a full metal body, the Alt Pen makes quite a style statement. Coming in a box, with two extra refills and 8 bits to use along with the Alt Pen, this writing/fixing instrument seems to be the perfect choice for your to-work or business-class EDC. From writing down ideas and signing checks, to fixing your spectacles, or even tinkering with your phone, the Alt Pen takes care of all your needs, while looking exceptionally dapper!
