– Tutorial :

1- Empty your Reimei barrel and keep the 2 smooth caps.

2- Take your 2Ballpen&Sharppen and cut as shown. Keep the smooth part.

3- Put the smooth part on the Reimei caps as shown.

4- Keep the 2 caps of the Rikota marker and the G3 backplugs

5- Keep the 6 metal rings from the Tect mechanical pencils. Disassemble them like so:

6- Push Rikota caps on the top of Reimei caps.

7- Cut black Anyball grips as shown. Keep the 5 blocks section, the leftovers will be used for decoration

8- Cut your Supergrip grip as shown. (actual uses 3 blocks, not 2)

9-  Put Anyball grips and Supergrip grips as shown. (Supergrip first, followed by Anyball on top)

10- Put G3 backplugs onto Rikota caps and put 3 Tect rings into each Supergrip grip. The orientation of the rings is like so :

11- Put the rest of Anyball grips as shown (4 coloured, 1 black, 2 coloured), and put an insert in the Reimei barrel. Add the caps on each side. You’re done 🙂

– Comment :
This pen mod had received a lot of controverse. “Why spend so much money for a pen that doesn’t spin that well?” It is a legit thought, but we have no clue about the intention of making from Menowa. I guess he just used some spare parts to make a pen for a very specific way of spinning (take a look at the video below)
I (Vôre-Tèx) don’t recommend you to make this mod if you are not going to spin it for its specific using (the way of spin on the video below), unless if you are a fan of Menowa* or if you have money.
Reimei barrel diameter is between Supertip and Emboss. A bit weird at first but the texture and flexible barrel are great.
