Pentel Slicci Gel Pen

As a quick follow up to this post, and continuing the seemingly endless series of pen-related posts, I wanted to show off the ridiculously cool design of the Pentel Slicci gel pen. Even though the Slicci is a little thin for daily use as a workhorse pen, it really looks nice. Have I mentioned that the Japanese love their pens? The Japanese design team must have spent a few months designing this pen, using CAD tools and carving out prototypes from blocks of clay. This thing looks like something that can break the sound barrier, something that can shoot down aircraft, a time capsule, or a fuel rod from the Curiosity. Just feast your eyes and behold the awesomeness that is the Pentel Slicci.

  1. A quick follow up to my original post. Even though I totally dig the design and look of the Slicci pen, it's just too skinny to use comfortably at the office. I'm going to retire this pen and give it to the kids.
