Inventive design and ancient craft are combined in a simple writing implement from the Shion CNC machining center. As the name indicates, Drillog is a drill-shaped pen that holds the ink in its thin grooves that spiral up the side of the nib. While traditional quills require repeated dives, and the more modern fountain pen suspends the pigmented liquid in an internal reservoir for extended use, a single dive of the drillog should contain enough ink to smoothly fill A4 paper.
Its interchangeable kegs come in dozens of style and color combinations, and the Japanese company has even released a miniature palette with tiny indentations designed to reduce spillage. There are just under 40 days to support the fully funded project Kickstarter, and you can find out more about the aluminum pen at Drillog website and Twitter. (above Kern77)
