Parafernalia Falter 2D Pen Kit, $35

If you were one of those people that couldn't resist taking apart their ballpoint pens, this offering from Parafernalia is ideal. The pen body is made from a single piece of pressed steel that you mold into shape yourself. Nothing is wasted as the remnant of the original metal transforms into an equally attractive pen stand and ruler, and if you've got the skills, you can even make it into a retractable pen.
