From Point to Line

Individually crafted solid metal ballpoint pen with a unique U-clip.
Included ink cartridge: SXR-5 0.5mm waterproof ink. Patent pending. Weight 26g. Made in Japan.

The U-Clip

When this pen is attached to a notepad or in a pocket all that’s visible is the U-clip, giving it a clean look like a classic tie clip. The U-shaped clip is Postalco’s original design. In a single curved shape the metal clip arcs over the top of the pen allowing the pen to sink lower onto the papers it is clipped to. The clip is also the button that exposes the tip of the ballpoint. The U-shaped clip took the most time to develop. Combining the clip and the button in one refined metal piece turned out to be more difficult than we imagined. This pen is made by shaving metal away from a solid block. Lines cut into the clip give just the grip needed and also create a subtle graph pattern. Instead of plastic or rubber grips there are fine record-like lines inscribed into the pen body. It feels refined: less like a tool and more like an instrument. This pen embraces traditional craft but with the goal of blending it into everyday contemporary life.

Why 'Channel Point’?

We named this pen because the passage where the clip slides looks like a channel. I like when things are moving forward so channels are inspiring. (Pens allow us to take the thoughts and ideas swimming around in our heads and put them down on paper. Once we can see those thoughts outside of our minds, we can take the next step.)


Surprisingly smooth and quick drying this pen is the result of much experimentation and research. It’s best to forget about all the inventions that are built into this pen and focus on the smooth transfer of your thoughts to paper. Fits refills ranging from 0.38mm to 0.7mm in permanent ink or gel ink, black or blue colors.
