The Trek, in wenge and black enamel
The Trek is a no-nonsense click action ballpoint pen perfect for any situation! It's solid build allows it to be thrown in a rucksack and is ideal for anyone planning on taking notes on the go. Being a click pen it is operated with a single hand: no more fiddling with a cap or twist action whilst trying to hold a map or notepad.
Don't be fooled by the somewhat rugged design: the smooth lines of the hardware perfectly compliment the upper and lower barrels, which have been delicately shaped and polished to a fine finish.
