Teal Pocket Modal Special Release


SKU: BUNDLED-PM-TEAL SR Categories: , ,


While considering how best to allow for the standard Parker style ballpoint refill to be used with the Modal functionality, we debated on whether to simply offer an adapter kit or to go further and have a separate pen. In the long run, we decided to do both because we realized the separate pen could be a smaller pocket pen that was still balanced well and super functional. We used the EDK lower barrels which allows for the use of the traditional Parker style ballpoint refills and the Schmidt P8126/7 refills which are popular liquid ink refill option. This pen is nearly 0.5 inches shorter than the standard Modal, but still fits comfortably in the hand. It’s even easier to carry in a pocket with the pocket carry clip. And it will feature a similar material and color scheme as our EDK pens use, primarily tumbled finishes and matte anodize.

The Teal Pocket Modal Special Release welcomes back another color into the Karas family, bright teal anodize.  Teal and Orange were two colors that disappeared around the same time when our old anodizer was bought out. We received samples from alternative anodizers in a similar color called Aqua, but that color was never right and looked more like watered down blue sports drink. The original Teal makes an official comeback today on the Pocket Modal with two different customizations. Select the Teal & Orange Pocket Modal that is set up with matte orange anodized hardware and a white Delrin slider, or the Teal & Grey Pocket Modal which is set up with matte grey anodized hardware and an Ultem slider. The look of matte anodized hardware on a bright anodized pen is something we’ve come to appreciate with the contrast occurring in both the color and the texture. Both of these colorways take advantage of that extra contrast and look exceptional. Select from a variety of ballpoint refills or the liquid ink Schmidt P8126/7 refills to customize this pen to your heart’s desire. The body, clip, slider, and button are designed and manufactured in our facility in Mesa, Arizona.
