Drehgriffel Ballpoint Pen Leuchtturm

(2 customer reviews)




LEUCHTTURM1917 is reviving the Drehgriffel from the 1920s. The name “Drehgriffel”  is a German compound noun that directly translates as twist stylus. Its characteristic design makes this writing instrument truly distinctive: a hexagonal body with a pointed tip, which, like the twist button, is in a contrasting colour. The Drehgriffel is made from  precision-milled aluminium and brass, then painted and sealed. It uses a spring-loaded  twist mechanism. The Drehgriffel Nr. 1 is a ballpoint with royal blue ink.

    Gorgeous pen which writes beautifully. The mechanism that controls it is a thing of wonder, so simple but lovely. Have bought a couple more since my first

    I absolutely LOVE this pen. I use it daily, the barrel is so comfortable to hold, the nib reminds me of the classic Bic Nib, but that’s not a negative in my view. The twist mechanism is so easy to use, and sits perfectly in my Pen Clip on my daily journal. I bought the Pink and its a really gorgeous colour.
