There's a weird and wonderful variety of multi-function pens (or multipens) here at Cult Pens, and many of them, listed here, include a pencil mechanism.
In this category is everything from simple plastic pen/pencil combinations to elegant metal pens containing three or more different functions with various choices of pens, pencils, stylus tips and highlighters. Some multipens are simple devices with a function at each end, whilst others have sophisticated gravity select mechanisms to pop out the relevant tip simply by turning the appropriate icon to face you and pressing the top down. We have multi-function pens that hang off keyrings whilst others would make fabulous gifts. Many of these pens use the standard D1 refill which means that if you don't like the functions you can swap ballpoint nibs for stylus tips, or stylus tips for highlighters.
The best multi-function pen? Our favourite is probably the Zebra Sharbo X range - buy it empty and specify a 0.3mm, 0.5mm or 0.7mm lead mechanism (one of the only multipens to give you a choice of pencil sizes), then buy 2 or 3 (depending on model) D1 refills to fit the pen, choosing from our range of ballpoint, gel, highlighter or stylus tips. The Sharbo X has superb build quality and a super-smooth twist-action selector. A very satisfying pen to use. Pilot's Coleto adds a gel ink twist to proceedings, and a big ink colour range, with 4- or 5-colour pen bodies available. Like the Sharbo X you mix and match an empty body to create your own pen, and the choice of refills includes a pencil mechanism. In fact, the Coleto can house more than one pencil mechanism, making it a perfect choice if you wanted more than one lead grade available. An interesting option for sketching on the go.
We love multifunction pens and pencils, so you can refine the list below using the filters on the left to select which set of functions you need, and which type of selection mechanism you prefer.
