Putting pen to paper. It’s somewhat a laborious task, but the labor has virtue and substance. Ajoto makes a beautiful rollerball pen for these important moments, when an exciting idea pops up in your mind, or an important document is being signed. As the ink flows onto the paper, it marks the beginning of a venture. The weight you feel on your hand, the strokes that you start to compose, the sounds from the rollerball hitting the paper. All become a pleasurable ritual.
Many products often sacrifice craftsmanship for expediency, merely because it’s faster, cheaper and easier. But a pen should be a beautiful tool for life. True to their values, Ajoto is keen to showcase the people, places and processes in the production journey. It is intriguing to see a product that speaks of its origins, traditions and cultures. It is even more intriguing to hold it in one’s hand and use it to let ideas take form.
This is a thoughtful pen. Your intention shows with each stroke from thin to thick as the versatile medium point glides smoothly across the page. When not in use, the pure and classic design is a perfect ornament for the desk. It comes in brass or aluminum. At 50 grams, the weight of the brass pen feels well balanced and comfortable, while the aluminum pen is significantly lighter. Both have a finely spun finish, but brass will oxidize over time and develop an elegant patina.
Aluminium, Brass, Rhodium, 14ct Gold
The unboxing experience is simply delightful and deserves all the praise. The products are packed full of hidden messages and small details for one to explore. Beautifully letterpressed paper stock, a subtle silver foil pattern, an aluminum box, a sliding molded cork tray - all presented with the sense of pride that befits the remarkably well-made products.
