Have you heard about the new crowd-funded aluminum pen, the Brauller? It appears to be a pen designed to customize by slipping the refill unit out of one case and allowing the user to slide it into a different colored case while swapping out the grip and/or cap as well. The Brauller takes an assortment of standard Parker-style and European rollerball/Pilot G2 refills. So, if you’re looking for something new and different from the Render K, TechLiner, Pen Type-A or Ti pen, than maybe you’ll be interested in this.
From the product description, it sounds like the pen will be created in the designer’s Portuguese city of Vale do Ave so be aware that “international shipping” theoretically means anyone not living in Portugal.
I really want to like this product but it feels a little gimmicky to me. Rather than having two functional pens in two barrel colors, I could end up with one functional pen and a change of clothes for it that I’ll need to store and keep track of. Also, the video included does not show how assembly and re-assembly occurs. Its a very opaque video that doesn’t really show the pen in action. Sadly, with a new product developer, I need to see the product in more detail, the creators and generally speaking more technical information rather than a flashy “magic” video.
Is this a project you might back?
