The twist pen has a design of its own. It started with hand sketching, then renderings and then about ten rapid prototypes until the perfect one came along. The original twist pen was produced in the highest quality aluminium that is used for moulds. Created in a three-axis machine, the twist of the pen is what makes it ergonomic and provides a better grip when writing. It uses ink cartridges (BIC) that are pushed into the body. Colours such as black, blue and red can be set.
