Tombow AirPress Apro Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Green

This item is no longer available for sale on
The Tombow AirPress series leverages the energy from each push of the cap to inject air pressure into the ink cartridge, thus allowing the pen to write on challenging surfaces. The original AirPress has a durable hard rubber body ideal for construction employees or people working outdoors. The new AirPress Apro is targeted to indoor individuals who wear \"aprons\" or lab coats such as doctors, nurses, cooks, waitresses, home caretakers/cleaners, etc. It still has the same ability to write at extreme angles, upside down, on wet paper, and in cold temperatures, making it an ideal writing companion to those working in busy environments. For example, a cook can quickly write down ingredients on a damp paper spotted with sauce using the Tombow AirPress Apro. It is similar to the Uni-ball Power Tank Ballpoint Pen, except that this pen ingeniously uses the retraction method to create air pressure.

The pen includes a few nice features to make life easier. It has a lock that allows you to prevent the tip from coming out while it is in your pocket. The push clip has a bumpy surface to grip onto fabric better and can expand up to 12 mm wide, allowing you to click the pen onto thick objects. Lastly, the \"knock\" or retractable function is quiet, suitable for professional environments.

A good writing pen that fits in the hand well. Can't say it seems any better than the Uni Power Tank, but has been working just as well for me -- quite a compliment ! I work labeling medical samples and need different color pens for the various replicates. These give me a bit of variety while still writing well on a variety of difficult surfaces.
