What a delightful and cool conversation starter. The Traveler's Brass Pen is a Japanese take on the vintage American “bullet” style pens. Hidden inside the glossy brass barrel is a needle tip ballpoint pen wrapped in a stylish wood barrel. Write in compact mode with the tip sticking through the chrome cap, or in a longer configuration with the wood barrel exposed. Slide the Traveler's Brass Pen into your pocket, or attach it to your lanyard with the handy ring on top.
