AJOTO Pen

They say the pen is mightier than the sword and whilst we doubt this is scientifically true and certainly wouldn’t want to go into a sword fight yielding a pen, we are well aware of the power of words here at Coolector HQ. Though we seldom commit our words to paper any more, we still very much like the idea of having a spiffing pen in our possession and we’ve seen few better than this rather excellent looking AJOTO Pen which is both visually impressive and superbly functional.

This AJOTO Pen is the creation of a pair of London based designers called Chris Holden and Tim Higgins and they have created a series of products alongside their cracking looking pen. For this pair of designers, the production processes are just as important as the finished products that they produce so they pay particular attention to how their goods are made. Check the video below to see a little more about AJOTO’s dedication to the production process:

There is a great array of goods to be found beneath the AJOTO umbrella but it is their pen that has caught our eye the most here at Coolector HQ as we’re currently in the market for a new writing instrument and this one AJOTO meets all our style and functionality requirements. Their pens are available in four different colours so you’ll be able to find one that fits the bill. Check out a few more shots of this smashing pen below:

If you’re still clinging onto the glory days of writing hand written letters and notes as we are here at The Coolector, you too will want to get your hands on a top notch pen and we’ve seen few better than this one from AJOTO and we’re mightily impressed by the dedication to manufacturing their goods in the right way.
