The ink pen, a traveler’s favorite companion: a look at the handwriting and sketches of well-known travelers and diarists like Charles Darwin or Eugene Delacroix is enough to have anyone lusting after a pad of paper and a good felt-tip of their own. But how often do pens find their way to the very bottom of the bag, coated in trail mix crumbs and nudging against crumpled paper?
Perhaps a common pet peeve of the relentless scribbler is the finicky pen that scratches rather than writes, running dry within weeks of purchase. Le Pen is not that pen. Light to the touch, its 0.3mm micro-fine felt tip doesn’t bleed and writes smoothly, letting nothing get in the way of the traveler’s effortless pour of words and scenes onto the page. Le Pen also comes in 18 colors which sell for $1.95 each: a dime well spent for even the most amateur artist or color-happy writer. These pens are so fun to use they may never make it into to your suitcase.
