LEUCHTTURM1917 is reviving the Drehgriffel from the 1920s. The name “Drehgriffel”  is a German compound noun that directly translates as twist stylus. Its characteristic design makes this writing instrument truly distinctive: a hexagonal body with a pointed tip, which, like the twist button, is in a contrasting colour. The Drehgriffel is made from  precision-milled aluminium and brass, then painted and sealed. It uses a spring-loaded  twist mechanism. 

Gel ink has a higher viscosity than standard ballpoint pen ink. An advantage that ensures easy and flowing handwriting. Giving a line width of only 0.5mm, the Japanese gel pen refill creates particularly fine writing with a clear outline. Even with a fine stroke, the ink flows very evenly via the pen tip onto the paper.

This is due to a ceramic ball bearing which dictates the perfect flow of ink in the tip. The interaction between the ceramic’s smooth surface and the precise positioning of the ball bearing ensures a constant flow of ink despite the fact that very little ink is released.
