Review: Leuchtturm1917 Drehgriffel ballpoint pen


I recently went on a trip and picked up this pen by Leuchtterm1917. 

I've used their notebooks (great for bullet journalling) but I don't think I've purchased their pens before. 

I picked up the Drehgriffel Nr. 1 in the beautiful colour, Rising Sun. 

The Drehgriffel Nr.1 is a retractable ballpoint pen, it's 13cm long, with blue ink as a default and it's made from aluminium and brass. 

The design was inspired by an original 1920 design.

To retract the ballpoint end, there's a twist mechanism at the top of the pen. The action is smooth and because of the materials used, it feels very nice. 

By the way, it also comes in a pencil version

I think this pen was beautifully presented. 
The colour is amazing and the twist mechanism feels expensive, it also feels nice to grip. 

This would be a great ballpen for your bag, to take with your documents and even just something to keep on your table. 

The only thing I would change is the ink colour, I would change it to a black but it's a beautiful pen and if you're a fan of Leuchtturm, you'll love this.
