Schmidt Capless system, plated titanium, is a newly developed system for the smoothest and most elegant writing. This pen combines the individual character of a fountain pen with the problem free handling comfort of a ball pen. The patented clip action retracts the refill with a touch on the top of the clip. A cover cap is no longer needed with this revolutionary pen. With a new type of refill that dries immediately on the paper, but not in the pen with a shelf life of one year. Beautiful Blue Grip.
