We are in a unique time in our history where both the old ways and the new ways are having to integrate for out-of-the-box thinking. That’s exactly the type of thinking that Krudo used to design KOMPENSATOR. The back end of the pen is fashioned after the look of the compensator you might see on a firearm.  It is complete with 2 pen tips giving you the ability to sign off with flare. We also just like the idea that the word “pen” is in the KOMPENSATOR name.

Made from 6061-T6 Aluminum, with a Titanium clip, KOMPENSATOR is the elegant solution to your EDC needs. Interchangeable fine tips for the roller point and for the ink nib provide both a no-nonsense tool and creative script options. 

Take this tool with you to the board meeting for notes, the grocery store for marking off your list, keep it within reach at your desk or in your pocket protector. With a slightly over ½” diameter, black, anodized body, KOMPENSATOR will complement your EDC collection and keep you at the ready. It’s even ideal as a gift!

Description

From his first pen design, called KRUBATON, Louis Krudo has evolved this KOMPENSATOR design to encompass more flexibility and style while keeping the unique Krudo design aesthetic. 

With a lifetime love affair of pen and ink, Louis Krudo has, once again, turned the ordinary into the extraordinary. KOMPENSATOR is his first interchangeable pen tip design. Drawing on rich history and actual mastery of the inkwell from his childhood days, Krudo brought that idea of the old to the modern era.

When we asked Louis Krudo about the thought behind including an fountain pen nib, this is what he told us:

“I was taught how to write with an old fashioned fountain pen where the shaft was made of wood in a teardrop shape and the nib was replaceable. I used an ink well and a blotter. That was a mess! Ultimately I became very proficient. 

My actual love for fountain pens started when upon entering college,  my parents gave me my first fine pen, a Montblanc Meisterstück Fountain Pen, which I still have. Writing with it gives me warm feelings and good memories.”

All KRUDO Knives products are limited run pieces and KOMPENSATOR is no exception. This is a first run of only 300 pieces. Be sure and add this modular pen to your EDC line-up!
