CW&T Pen Type-A - Architect's Scale (Special Edition)
The grandest monuments and tallest buildings start from a simple sketch. It all begins when you put pen to paper, and there is no better instrument to kickstart your next project with than the special edition CW&T Pen Type-A with the Architect's Scale.
As CW&T themselves puts it, this pen is "over-engineered to crazy town," utilizing precision machining, pneumatics, and solid stainless steel. The Pen Type-A is built around the cult-favorite Pilot Hi-Tec-C gel ink refill, to which the CW&T designers paid homage to with a virtually indestructible body that can be passed down from one generation to the next.
To create the most durable housing, every single part of the Pen Type-A is machined from solid stainless steel. The deep wells in the cylinders and the square sleeves are carefully drilled out from a solid block with a gun drill. This specialized process results in a perfectly straight and deep well.
The pen is stored in the stainless steel sleeve, and when fitted together, the pen and sleeve are like a piston, creating a pneumatic seal that protects the pen. In addition, a rubber ring inside the sleeve protects the pen tip and prevents air from drying out the tip. Pulling the pen out of the sleeve breaks the pneumatic seal, generating a signature "pop" sound.
Not only does the sleeve protect the pen, it also serves as a straightedge and an architect's scale. Each of the sleeve's edges is engraved with a scale ruler.
