The new Independence PVD rose gold ballpoint, Ink Ball and fountain pens are not just about the brilliant trim parts but the writing experience. In fact, they are far more than they appear to be.
Take for instance the 2 Piece Independence. It has a pleasingly positive cap closure aided by rare earth magnets; it’s naturally attracted to itself. Or, examine the optical quality coating on the gleaming black resin. In your hand, the pen’s balance is engineered to be perfect.
Choose either the buttery smooth Schmidt Technology fountain pen nib or go all 21st Century and experience the revolutionary Ink Ball mode. Both fountain pen and the Ink Ball draw upon liquid fountain pen ink using either a cartridge or your converter. You not only experience the fluidity of fountain pen ink, you get the convenience of a ‘rollerball’ pen which writes in any of 31 ink colors. That’s revolutionary.
If you are looking for a traditional 1 Piece ballpoint, the Independence in rose gold can be that new accessory to your look that you’ve been seeking. Our rose gold anodized Independence makes a great new addition to any professional’s look.
The Independence ballpoint takes GEL, Standard (old-school waxy oil-based) and Liquid Ink refills. We have fine, medium and broad in up 11 colors.
American Pen Company has had many requests for a pen which would utilize a refill capable of laying down a lot of ink. This requires a fiber tip of some size. Introducing the APC Independence Signature Tip. This German made refill allows for fast, precise and creative signatures without bleed-through. Available in black or blue. With a light touch, Signature Tip produces a nice clean line. A heavier hand can produce fast, large letters.
What do you desire most in a one piece writing instrument? Perfect balance, a durable scratch resistant finish, a clip designed to never break; ever. Would you want a ballpoint which would have an endless refill opportunity for colors, point sizes and various ink technologies?
The refill in your pen main is the main source of writing pleasure. To that end, we have engineered our ballpoint pen to take any one of three different technologies (GEL and Liquid ballpoints inks as well as a traditional rollerball) to allow you to choose exactly the line you want in the precise color and point size you desire. After selecting your pen, you will be asked to choose your favorite refill. Take your time as you have an amazing 29 choices. All of which will fit perfectly into your APC Independence twist-top action ballpoint pen.
When American Pen Company introduced the Independence in a fountain pen and rolling point, they also engineered it to accept Schmidt's ingenious Ink Ball technology. Imagine being able to use pure liquid ink. Even better, you can choose among the 31 vibrant colors we offer. Or, use the converter and dip into your own personal favorite inks. The American Pen Company Ink Ball takes any common international size cartridge.

Independence Rolling Point
Choose from black chrome, gold, rose gold or silver trim $205
Place the pen's cap upon your desktop and begin to write with your new Independence two piece rolling point. Immediately, you will notice the fluid motion which is aided by the pen's perfect balance. This balance in part comes from the precise location and thickness of the black matte grip. Cool to the touch, it falls comfortably to hand.
Replace your cap and you'll notice the strong gravitational pull of the rare earth magnets. By utilizing these ingenious magnets, we were able to bypass the cutting of easy to wear out threads. Some have said the magnets are entertaining. We'd say functional. Just like the CNC machined clip cut from military spec stainless steel designed to never break, or the 21st century scratch resistant finish we've applied.
