It's a small number of people indeed in today's world who give enough of a snoot about the written word--the literally written word--to have read this far into the post. And it's a smaller number who would be willing to shell out the $30-plus necessary to buy the finest writing ballpoint pen in the world today, the Retro 1951 Hex-O-Matic, over at Paisley Roberts. But to those who get it--or for those who get it as a birthday present (hint, hint)--there's a certain silky, sexy roll to this ballpoint that simply can't be matched. It's enough to make you want to start writing checks and sending postcards all over again.
