Fine lead gel roller aluminum
Roll smoothly, write fluently. With the gel roller
The gel rollerball pen is similar in design to the ballpoint pen. The main difference is that while ballpoint pen refills are filled with a writing paste, the gel rollerball writes with a water-based and much less viscous ink. It glides over the page correspondingly faster and smoother and leaves a clean typeface, which suits Asian writing practices very well. (It is therefore not surprising that the gel rollerball pen is of Japanese origin.)
The gel rollerball pen offered here by the Tokyo manufacturer Ohto is probably one of the most elegant representatives of its kind in terms of design: hexagonal at the rear end, the cross-section of the housing merges smoothly into a round shape towards the grip zone and tip, so that the pen fits perfectly in the hand.
Drawing and sign. Writing as filigree work
In China and Japan, the market share of fine-lead pens is far greater than elsewhere. The reason for this is that in other cultures, pens with line widths of less than one millimeter are used primarily for drawings and precise construction plans. The characters commonly used in the Far East, however, make even simple writing a filigree task, because they can consist of a number of individual strokes and must be put down precisely on paper even in small print in order to remain legible. Fine-lead pencils are therefore everyday products. The leading manufacturers - such as Ohto in Tokyo - offer small masterpieces that, despite their impressive mechanical sophistication, are surprisingly inexpensive as standard products manufactured millions of times over.
