Inventery No. 2 Mechanical Pen

Inventery No 2 Pen

Inventery, a boutique maker of pens and pencils, seems to have a definite hit with its Mechanical Pen. Despite the odd name — a misspelling and the use of “mechanical” with a pen instead of a pencil — this pen seems to have earned a number of fans since its release.

The 2019 version of the pen is the No. 2 Mechanical Pen, which seems like it might be the second version of the pen, but the name actually means more than that. This pen as two uses: it’s a pen, obviously, but it can be converted to be a pencil. This is done with the Schmidt DSM converter, a German component with a retail value of about $6, that turns a pen that uses a Parker-style G2 refill into a pencil.

So “mechanical” is because this pen is half pen and half mechanical pencil. Makes sense now!

The Mechanical pen is machined from brass. It has a matching clip and top button. While it can be converted to a pencil in just a few seconds, it does not have an eraser. (If you buy the pencil style, the No. 2 Mechanical Pencil, then it does have a eraser at the top.)

The pen uses a Schmidt EasyFlow 9000 refill and a Schmidt DSM 2007 pencil mechanism for writing.

This pen is also known as the Inventery “Interchangeable Pen” and was launched as a Indiegogo product in May of 2019.
