Hidetoshi Nakayama's Bolt Action Pen is a unique, handcrafted pen that blends artistry and craftsmanship, suitable for collectors, pen enthusiasts, and creative thinkers. Made by the renowned Japanese knife maker, jewelry crafter, and artist, the Bolt Action pen holds a lot of the characteristics that are recognizable in Hidetoshi Nakayama's knives: a stylistic blend of the imagination, with a flair for function, strength, and utility.
The designs of Nakayama's work are mostly steampunk in nature, bringing back the look and feel of 19th-century machinery and Victorian elegance, with a hint of the fantastical. The Bolt Action Pen pays tribute to retro-future imaginations and the industrial past in the way that it holds steampunk design exemplified in its meticulous features: from the spring-loaded turn bolt to the hand textured finishes to the stainless steel and vintage patina, the pen yields function and beauty in an industrialized aesthetic. No two pens are alike due to the handcrafted work Nakayama gives each pen and the pen's every component, which means you receive a truly one-of-a-kind piece of work.
With a length of 5 inches and a weight under two ounces, the Bolt Action Pen is a comfortable writing tool that will literally give weight to your words. As a pen, it stands out as a unique piece against all other typical office supplies. If anything, the Bolt Action Pen not only provides fluid writing using Switzerland's Caran d'Ache Goliath medium black cartridge, but can inspire creativity for your written endeavors, while also serving as a great talking piece for any visitors.
