Thanks to Alt Haven lending me this pen, I got a chance to review the Muji Aluminium Compact Fountain Pen. It is a modern long-short pen, and rather obviously, it’s made of aluminium metal. A long-short pen is a pen that has a long cap and short barrel, quite unlike the usual fountain pen which usually has a shorter cap than the barrel. The picture above is a comparison of the two Muji Aluminium Pens that have been available so far. I have done a review before of the Muji Aluminium Round fountain pen, so you can do a comparison. I have a preference toward short pens, and so of course I like this pen, being so small and very easy to slip into a pocket.

Wait a minute, I don’t mean that in a bad way. It’s just, you know, I’ve always had pens which have at least SOME variation in diameter at some location of the pen (excluding the nib and feed section), but this pen is so incredibly CYLINDRICAL, that even when the cap is posted like in the above picture, the whole pen stays cylindrical (well, except for the clip of course).
