Exlicon Magnetic Pen – The Ergonomic Writing, Designing and Crafting Tool
Exlicon Magnetic Pen is Live On Kickstarter!
What is the Exlicon Magnetic Pen?
The Exlicon Magnetic Pen is a dynamic tool that allows you to create your best work, as the essential every-day tool for writing, designing and cutting.
We wanted to design a tool for people that design, write, or craft daily, whether they’re designers, writers, architects, businessmen or travellers.
With this in mind, we have formulated the optimal shape for continuous handheld use, so that gripping your working tool is never uncomfortable.
With the Exlicon Magnetic Pen, we wanted to reduce hand fatigue and cramping, so that you can produce higher quality work for longer and enhance your experience in the process.
When writing or designing makes up a large portion of your day – and life – using an uncomfortable pen can be the difference between an enjoyable working experience and a bad one. Hand fatigue is a common problem for those who use inferior writing and designing tools.
With this in mind, the Ddiin design team created the Exlicon Magnetic Pen.
The pen’s triangular shape perfectly slots into the user’s natural grip, allowing the fingers to wrap naturally around the tool like an extension of your hand, preventing hand fatigue and ensuring comfort throughout use.
What’s more, the edged, triangular shape doubles up as an anti-roll mechanism. This means the Exlicon Magnetic Pen can’t roll off your desk and disrupt your workflow until you can relocate it.
This feature also makes it less likely that you’ll lose your Exlicon Magnetic Pen, which is built to last forever.
When you stop using your pen, all you need to do is bring the pen cap to the tip, and it will magnetically reattach to the pen.
Conversely, you’ll probably want to place your lid on the tail of your pen while you write or draw, to keep it safe while you’re using the tool. With the magnetic lid, this is easy, as the cap magnetically attaches to both the head and tail of the pen.
The Magnetic Pen is more than just a pen. It’s a multi-functional tool that you can harness by simply switching the tip.
Made of three parts – the cap, barrel (body) and tail – the Exlicon Magnetic Pen is held together by magnetic rings installed within the cutter, which secure the parts together, ensuring you’re able to use the cutter tip safely. The blade is encased within the rings preventing the sharp edge from sticking out and being a safety hazard.
The Exlicon Magnetic Pen is compatible with both pen tips and hobby knife blades. By switching the tips you can use the Exlicon Magnetic Pen as either a pen or a hobby knife.
To switch the tips, all you need to do is rotate the tip already in the Exlicon Magnetic Pen and remove it. Then, you can take your desired tip, rotate it and slot it into the empty pen body to make use of your pen’s multifunctionality.
We designed the Exlicon Magnetic Pen to be effortlessly ergonomic and practical. The Exlicon Magnetic Pen’s triangular design lends the pen its anti-roll capability – thanks to its flat sides and edges – while the rounded edges and dimensions contribute to its comfortable, ergonomic grip.
The Exlicon Magnetic Pen uses a commonly used, easily accessible refill: the Zebra JF refill, in a size from 0.1 to 0.5mm, Pilot BXS-V5RT refill, in a size from 0.38 to 0.5mm and Muji gel ink ballpoint pen refill, from 0.38 to 0.5mm . These are roughly 111m long and 6.5 in diameter, which is a perfect fit of the dimensions of the Exlicon Magnetic Pen. You can get a hobby knife refill of the same size.
The use of lead in the production of stationary is commonplace – but it shouldn’t be. Our manufacturing process is free from lead, heavy metals and other substances harmful to human health.
The Exlicon Magnetic Pen is built to be an every-day carry – and we want to ensure there are zero negative consequences when the Exlicon Magnetic Pen becomes a staple in your life.
The Exlicon Magnetic Pen is made from premium aluminium. This makes the pen incredibly durable, corrosion resistant and built to last, so your pen will look – and function – like new for its lifetime.
This means that the materials used in the Exlicon Magnetic Pen will go on to have another life, and be reused to serve another purpose – rather than become waste in landfill.
