This is a follow-up to a post from last week: Review: Uni-ball Power Tank Ballpoint Pen. The first thing to do, after reading the Power Tank review, is to read Brad’s Tombow AirPress review at the Pen Addict.
[You can find all of the Tombow AirPress pens at JetPens]
The Tombow AirPress is similar to the Power Tank and Fisher Space Pens, but it one-ups them in the nifty gadget category. The AirPress’s cartridge is indeed pressurized, but the user charges it each time he/she clicks the button. Unnecessarily gimmicky? Check. But crazy cool and fun? Double check.
Part of me is a little concerned that if you’re one of those people who can sit in a boring meeting and click his pen hundreds of time out of habit, it might explode in your lap. But I bet that won’t happen. Also, the pen is a very manageable size, not nearly as long as it appears in many pics.
Here some pics (click to see full-size). I had my daughter write out the beginning of A Tale of Two Cities.
