The pen body is made with sturdy hard plastic. Similar to other Japanese stationery items, it has a label of usage affixed onto the pen body that is easily removable and does not leave any residue. It measures 14.5 cm (≈ 5.71inch) in length and the girth of a 5-color body is 4.5 cm (≈ 1.77 inch). It is slightly chubbier than 4-color Coleto. My hand is a bit small, so this pen is on a thicker side; however, after slightly adjust the way I hold the pen, it becomes a bit more comfortable.

One interesting feature of the pen body is that the pen clip is actually one of the knockers. Even for someone who does not utilize the clip, it at least serves some function, as well as streamlines the overall aesthetics.
|I wonder whether I can repurpose these tubes in anyway?
They are just so nifty looking.
I think the packaging fro the refill is quite neat. Unlike other refills that are packaged in plastic wrapping, Style Fit refills come in tubes. To open, gently twist the knob at the end, and you will see that the knob doubled as an additional tip protector (each refill has a blue gum at the tip that prevent ink from drying out and need to be removed before usage). For a split second, the packaging reminds me of the cryogenic cases that appear in sci-fi movies. The packaging could be excessive to some people, but in my opinion, the extra packaging might help extending shelf life of these refills, and it will not dry out as quickly. The refills are available in 16 colors, 4 tip size options (.28mm, .38mm, .5mm, and .7mm; please note that .7mm is only available in black, red, and blue), and mechanical pencil component (.5mm). Ballpoint refills are also available.
|Sorry for a less focused picture.
You can get whole lot of information from the barrel itself.

When it comes to pens, I like to take it apart (without breaking it) to figure out how it works. The beauty of a multipen is that you need to dissemble it to refill it. To refill, twist off the front part of the pen boy, and insert the refill through the holes in the chamber. Be sure to push the refill in all the way (you will hear a faint clicking sound); otherwise, when you push down the knocker, the refill will be released and stuck in the barrel.
|Writing sample of Style Fit.
Yes, I technically carry about 15 pens with me in 3 multipens.
