For refills, you will have two colors of choice (Black / Blue) and three tip types to choose from — Ultra fine (0.38), extra fine (0.5) or fine (0.7).

Cons — What to Improve
Each person has their own way of holding up a pen, there’s no “best” grip. Thus, the design may not suit you. Afterall, it’s still worth a try if you’re one of those vintage pen fanatics/collectors.
Considering other similar product in the market, despite the design, Pen Article doesn’t seem outstanding and yet, it has an expensive price tag. According to the creator, the profit margin is actually very low and mostly the cost is being used to cover up the manufacturing cost and payment for employees.
