Leuchtturm1917 Drehgriffel Gel Pen – Leuchtturm1917 revives the Drehgriffel from the 1920s. The name “Drehgriffel” is a German compound word that can be directly translated as twist pen. Its characteristic design makes the pen really stand out. Made of precision ground aluminum and brass. The twist mechanism is spring-loaded.
Shodō, the way of artistic handwriting
Japan is a country which is well-known for its writing culture. Shodō is a Japanese word which is often translated as ‘the way of artistic handwriting’ or beautiful writing and describes the very moment in which a thought flows through the hand and becomes visible on paper.
Our gel pen refill was developed in Japan, in order to reproduce in everyday life and as accurately as possible the fineness of ink strokes that were traditionally created with a brush. It makes the multiple award-winning Drehgriffel Nr. 1 pen from LEUCHTTURM1917 a premium instrument for writing and drawing.
