These writing instruments are similar to the Worther Shorty Alum Clutch pencils. This Worther Compact line consists of an aluminum mechanical pencil with an integral eraser and a .5HB lead, a rollerball pen (blue ink "Parker" system) or a fountain pen with an iridium "M" nib in your choice of a natural aluminum. The rollerball pen and the fountain pen have a matching cap which clicks firmly onto the back of the instrument when writing. Each of the writing instruments have an integral clip. They are boxed in a deep black presentation box with a silver foil-stamped "Worther" logo.
