The Stalogy ballpoint pen is a low-viscosity pen from Nitoms, which is part of Japanese conglomerate Nitto. Nitoms is primarily known for their tape and stationery accessories, so while this pen might seem like an random Ebay or Amazon find, it actually comes from popular manufacturer of related products.
The Stalogy ballpoint has a full-body grip coating that is non-slip and glove-friendly. This is the same sort of material you’d fine on the outside of a Lenovo ThinkPad, often described as “soft touch” rubber. It’s over a body that appears to be a heavy-duty plastic. The top button, clip and front cone piece are made of chromed metal.
The refill on the Stalogy is an interesting one. It’s a short, plastic refill that looks like the “G” line of refills from Zebra. This is an odd size that is hard to replace, which is one of the reasons swapping the refill on the popular Zebra F-701 and G-301 can be such a challenge. It’s unclear how or why Stalogy ended up with this refill in a full-sized plastic pen, but it writes reasonably well. The refill is similar to the Zebra emulsion line of hybrid ballpoint inks, which is to say that it is a ballpoint with a smooth, lubricated feed to it. This type of modern ballpoint is versatile, easy to use, writes on many different surfaces, and reasonably fun to have around.
