Metaphys Locus 3Way Pen
**Those sold out fast! Please add your name to our wait list, and we'll email you when they're back in stock.**
The first thing that you'll notice about the pen is its unique clip, which is characteristic of the whole Locus line and also available on the Locus Ballpoint Pen. Pick the pen up and you’ll be impressed by its weight. The entire body of the pen is made of metal and comes in black with a matte finish.
Unlike more typical multi-pens, there are not three switches to engage three functions. Twisting the clip and upper tube will silently extend the point of the pen. Keep twisting and it will retract and be replaced by the mechanical pencil. Twist further to access the world’s finest eraser, a tube with a 2 mm diameter. Both the pencil lead and eraser can be lengthened by clicking down on the pen clip like a standard mechanical pencil.
The Locus 3Way Pen is a great solution for someone who wants both a pen and pencil in one cutting edge package. It comes nested in a plastic box with a cardboard slip case, making this an excellent choice as a gift.
While the construction of this pen is first rate, care should be taken not to scratch the smooth, matte finish. Also, unlike typical multi-pens, there is no off position. We recommend always twisting the pen until none of the three mechanisms are protruding when it is not in use.
