I was browsing Amazon (UK) a few days ago – I can’t remember just what I was looking for, when I spotted this pen

Franklin Covey Cross Melbourne Satin Black With Gold Trim Multi Function


It has black, red and blue ballpoints plus a 0.5mm pencil.  Most multi pens are so bulky.  I don’t like bulky pens.  For a start, they don’t fit into standard binder pen loops but also, I don’t like writing with them.  Chunky pens and me just don’t get on.  This isn’t chunky at all.  As you’ll see from one of the photos below, it’s only marginally bigger than a standard Parker ballpoint.  It even fits (with a bit of encouragement) into my Filofax Malden pen loop, but it won’t have the disastrous ending that Kent From Oz had with his pocket Malden who’s pen loop went to the great leather heap in the sky 😉

I’ve never heard of it before, but it works on “Advanced Gravity System”.  You tilt the pen with the colour you want to use facing upwards and press the button on the top.  I tried it several times, trying to catch it out, trying to get it to make a mistake, but it didn’t.  Worked perfectly every time.

It looks good, it’s a dream to write with and now I don’t have to carry different coloured pens around.  Even better, the RRP is £34.99 and this was just £7.99 and just 99p P+P.  Doesn’t get any better than that.
