Based on a common need for a more comfortable writing instrument, Pilot set out to give people the writing solution they were looking for. In 1995, Pilot launched Dr. Grip, a pen and mechanical pencil collection designed to provide superior writing comfort and be the solution to that demand. By 1996, the entire Dr. Grip line earned the Ease-of-Use Commendation by the Arthritis Foundation. More recently in 2012, a three-month study conducted by the Georgia Tech Research Institute found Dr. Grip Center of Gravity (COG) surpassed key competitors in overall comfort ratings for users both with and without arthritis. In the study, Dr. Grip COG was proven to be almost 2X more comfortable than key competitor brands*.
Dr. Grip's classic line has been enhanced over the years with the introduction of a wide variety of barrel colors and styles. The collection includes both fashion-forward and professional styles for a variety of writing needs and occasions. Dr. Grip is available in barrel colors that range from fun neon colors, to sophisticated metallic hues, to professional blue, black, and silver. In addition, Dr. Grip is offered in a variety of point types including Medium 1.0 mm ball point ink, Fine 0.7 mm gel ink, and #2 HB mechanical pencil lead. Every Dr. Grip pen and mechanical pencil is retractable and refillable for continued use and lasting value.
The newest addition to the Dr. Grip Collection is a writing instrument that serves as both pen AND pencil. In fact, the Dr. Grip 4+1 is 5 different writing options in one! Designed for getting complex jobs done with incredible precision, the Dr. Grip 4+1 has retractable Black, Blue, Red and Green advanced ink, as well as Mechanical Pencil lead. Dr. Grip 4+1 is perfect for anyone who needs--or just simply enjoys--different writing options for editing, organizing, and more. Dr. Grip is the ultimate all-in-one writing instrument.
