The Assault Writer Takes Ballpoint Pen Art to a Dangerous Level

When designing the Assault Writer, Alexander Weeks wanted his ballpoint pen art to exemplify the irony in the famous quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, "The pen is mightier than the sword."

While it may seem that the entire assault rifle is constructed out of colorful pens and pen caps, it actually has a core skeleton made out of foam and structural wood pieces that fill out the frame and give the pens something to adhere to. Demonstrating the weapons used in today's society, this deadly pen creation speaks volumes about the power of the written word in people's lives.

With this type of violent ballpoint pen art, I wouldn't dare bring a sword to an Assault Writer fight.
