ēnsso ARIA: Minimalist Metal Pen

If you’re serious about your line up of EDC, you’ll know only too well that owning a good quality pen is part and parcel of that and one of the cornerstones of your line up. When it comes to new everyday carry pieces, Kickstarter is always one of our first ports of call here at Coolector HQ and they’ve come through with the goods again in the shape of this superb looking ēnsso ARIA: Minimalist Metal Pen which is designed for the BIC ballpoint refill.

The ēnsso ARIA: Minimalist Metal Pen on Kickstarter has prices which start at a thoroughly reasonable $29 for these supremely stylish and functional black aluminium and brass pens which are designed to upgrade your BiC ballpoint pen and give your everyday carry collection a new lease of life as we head into Fall and Winter.

Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Needless to say, the BIC ballpoint pen is the mainstay of most people’s stationery line up and most people will have one in their possession. The team at ēnsso have been thinking for years about designing a premium, yet affordable pen that accepts all classic BIC refills. A pen that would serve you a lifetime and become a mainstay of your EDC. The end result of this is the ARIA, a minimalist all-metal pen conceived with utmost attention to detail.

The ēnsso ARIA: Minimalist Metal Pen on Kickstarter (from $29) has a streamlined, elegant aesthetic which is based on ergonomics and it is perfectly balanced and weighted for the most comfortable writing experience day in, day out. The barrel also boasts integrated threads to securely close and post the cap while writing. 

Machined from solid bars of space-grade (6061-T6511) aluminium and natural brass, there is a real tangible sense of quality to these effortlessly cool and sleek looking pens from ēnsso. The lightweight aluminium version is anodised in matte black for an understated and sophisticated aesthetic. Whereas the brass edition is heavier and delivers a more tactile experience to the user. The brass is left uncoated and this means it will develop a unique patina over time. Such patina is appreciated by collectors but can easily be removed with any brass-cleaning product for a new and shiny appearance.

Expertly Engineered

ēnsso’s ARIA pen has been purpose built and engineered for over a year and it’s manufactured in California to exacting standards, using state-of-the-art machinery with the best raw materials. It is ēnsso’s mission to deliver a writing instrument to be used for many years with the highest quality and elegant atemporal design. Mission accomplished from what we can see here at The Coolector.

Available for the bargain price of just $29 during the Kickstarter campaign, it’s not hard to see why the ēnsso ARIA: Minimalist Metal Pen has flown past its funding target. If you’re in the market for a classy, functional and top performing pen for your EDC collection, call off the search because you just find the ideal candidate.
