I couldn't figure it out either. Here's a video about how it works...

Dildo pencil that isn't qualified for actual use ?
UPDATE: CEO asked if I'd taken up smoking. However I now have a +3 to my terrible Arnie impersonation.
Also found it's great for seeing what people have written on the pad by the phone in hotel rooms. It seems someones romantic weekend did not good well. :(

is the stand just a black circle? or am I missing something. Like does it actually act as a stand not just something that the pen will just roll off of?
delance26
I ordered one of these in the last drop. @sehrgut it writes instantaneously like a pencil. I would suggest it is metal alloy rubbing off onto paper, not an oxidising reaction. @delance26 it acts like a stand and is indented so that the pencil sits in there nicely. @Jamaas the writing is incredibly light, so much so that I don't find it useful for very much. You can get a line that represents a light line from a HB lead, but only if you press VERY hard. @PickledGinger because of this I would suggest that it is not very suitable for sketching.
Seemed neat so I looked up some reviews and videos. The writing seems very very light, has anybody had a different experience?
Jamaas
Mine just arrived. Writes very light. I usually scribble on colour paper, light blue currently. I found it so light I can barely see it. Still fairly light on white. For me it'll sit on my desk at work, maybe draw some cats. My partner just started at the same company as me. She can now see my desk setup with a tops, fountain pens, knives, lighters, headphones, and now a Cuban pen. ALL from Massdrop. I think I'll be in trouble tonight.
The manufacturer claims it works by oxidizing the paper, which seems absurd from a chemical standpoint. I imagine this works like any silverpoint pencil, but I'm suspicious when the promoter of a product has so little understanding of the principles they claim to be leveraging.
Does anyone know if these are suitable for sketching?

Is it safe for children to use?
Will this write on fabric, and if so, can it be erased?
JudyC
Not sure if it writes on fabric - great question!! It's not erasable, from what I've seen... But, who knows - maybe someone will find some sort of "thing" to get it to be erasable ;)
JudyC
Not sure about writing on fabric, but it can be erased... at first. Later the writing itself oxidizes and becomes permanent.
Does this leave marks on wood and other materials, or just paper?
Are there lead or other heavy metals in this?
The photos show two different style stands. Which one does it come with? Perfectly round or round with a protrusion?
MigNole
They're both round. The one is just the packaging protruding to fit the pen. If you look really close you can see its round under the plastic package.
Hi all,
Here is the writing sample from our last NAPKIN product drop, which uses the same tip with a different body: https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/product-images/MD-10899_20150905121928_c05101ca29e8d739.jpg?auto=format&fit=crop&w=507&dpr=2
It definitely performs best on paper like the Ogami Stone, and we've dropped a few different Ogami styles in the past. If you search "Ogami", you can view each page and request your favorite to come back.
The NAPKIN Ethergraf tip also seems to do well on some textured paper. Hope this helps!
This is the worst cigar I've ever smoked and it was very hard to light!
I seem to recall that a previous drop of a NAPKIN product also failed to include a writing sample in the description. I understand why, it's quite faint and is likely the deal breaker for many who are considering it and are forced to track down a secondary review just to see it. The mark also doesn't photograph well, due to its reflective properties.
But I think they should just own it. Put it out there, offer a paper that performs well with the product as an add-on. The selling point of these types of products is not their bold and easily read mark, it is their uniqueness. They are borderline art objects, and this is a fantastic price for anybody whose curiosity is piqued or who is looking for a novel writing experience.

Just want to confirm that you sampled this particular model? Also, glad to know that the stone paper has a truly functional use, since it's tough or rough 😊 on pencil lead and pen nibs.
Shadowphd
@ shadowphd - yes, I tried the Cuban :) on stone paper, I haven't tried it on other paper tho. The pen shop said they tried several types of paper and they liked the stone the best (I personally love the feel of stone paper, but because I write with fountain pens I can't use it lol - really awesome effect with fp's, FYI). There's another model that I'm going to buy for my other son, the long skinny aluminum version, that writes just the same, only has a different rest in the hand, they're fun!
Here's a pretty good review, with writing samples. From what I've seen from this and other reviews, it tends to leave marks similar to or slightly lighter than a 4H pencil, so pretty light. I'm a sucker for unique writing utensils, and it's a decent price, so I'm in. https://woodclinched.com/2015/07/05/napkin-prima-review/
Sorry for the dumb question, but can someone please explain what this thing is? Is it a pencil of some kind? If so, can we see a photo of what the writing looks like?

Nice. Let us know how well it does? MD should really consider re-writing the description. I've never seen so little being said in so many words.
erghnest
Haha, I was thinking the same. Given it's price I'm going to get one just to see what it's like.
