Muji’s Cult-Favorite Gel Pens Just Got Better

There’s a lot to like about Muji’s cheap and charming pens. Now there’s more.


Muji, the Japanese mega-retailer that’s begun establishing its presence in the States, may not yet be a household name outside its home country, but the company has been embraced by at least one segment of the American population: creatives.

Muji’s uber-cheap, translucent gel ink pens have long been prized by designers, engineers and other vocations that still require hand drawing. Why? They’re smooth, don’t bleed too much, come in a huge variety of colors and start at $1. Recently, a new, retractable tip model emerged: the Smooth Writing Gel Ink Pen. The refillable push-button pen comes with a .50mm tip and greater color variety. They can be yours for $1.49.
