If you saw my 2023 wish list post, then you know I’ve wanted one of the Gravitas Pens Universe pens for a while. I had to give the initial release a miss because of Athena’s illness, but I was determined to get one from the next release, and I did.

There isn’t as much to say for this pen. The shape is fairly standard for Gravitas Pens; this one is metal, so it’s a bit heavy. The section is metal, but includes the micro-ridges Ben typically implements to make it usable for people who have issue with metal being slippery.

The beauty β€” for me β€” is all in the coating. While boring at first glance β€” or in shade β€” the holographic glitter really shines (pardon the pun) when hit with direct, intense light.

I did my best to capture the rainbow of colors in this video, but the Universe pen is something you need to see in person to get the full effect.

How could I resist?
