We put pen to paper to write letters, jot down notes, or leave a short message for a loved one: writing instruments such as ballpoint pens, fountain pens and pencils are indispensable in this respect and one couldn’t imagine everyday life without them. And everyone has their very own favourite pen.
LEUCHTTURM1917 is reviving the Drehgriffel from the 1920s. The name “Drehgriffel” is a German compound noun that directly translates as twist stylus. Its characteristic design makes this writing instrument truly distinctive: a hexagonal body with a pointed tip, which, like the twist button, is in a contrasting colour. The Drehgriffel is made from precision-milled aluminium and brass, then painted and sealed. It uses a spring-loaded twist mechanism. The Drehgriffel Nr. 1 is a ballpoint with royal blue ink.

LEUCHTTUMRM1917 has long been committed to providing high-quality paper. But there was also an increasing urge to find a special writing instrument. After all, we need both, in order to put our thoughts on paper.
This writing instrument was intended to be something truly special – the perfect combination of an iconic design and a distinctive writing experience. And the Drehgriffel (Dreh [dre:] Griffel ['ɡrɪfl̩]) was the result. The deliberate use of old German script of the word mark is playfully juxtaposed with the contrasting modern design. It is basically new – and yet a classic.
The Drehgriffel (Dreh [dre:] Griffel ['ɡrɪfl̩]) Nr. 1 is a pen made of precision-milled aluminium and brass, which is then finished and sealed. It works on a spring-loaded turning mechanism. The refill can be replaced very easily by simply unscrewing the twist button. The royal blue ink chamber (B), which has a particularly light and fluid writing quality, is also available as a replacement refill in royal blue and black. Each pack comes with instructions on how to replace the refill.
