Tradio Sketch Pen
Pentel's Tradio Sketch Pen is one of the most interesting writing instruments we carry. The ink flows like a fountain pen, but the nib is made of flexible plastic, allowing for a variety of strokes with different pressure and orientation. Tradio moves quickly across the page, laying in dark marks with expressive character and giving you complete control.
Unlike traditional fountain pen nibs, Tradio's unique sketching nib allows writing in any direction with no scratchiness. It also works on a broader variety of paper than most fountain pens. We use ours to write notes on your packing slips, mark boxes, and lots of other tasks you might be wary of undertaking with a metal nib.
Made in Japan. We import the Japanese-market version because the label looks cool and the price is a bit lower this way.
Tradio comes loaded with black ink, but we stock refills in three colors.
