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 pen with royal blue ink.
