This is a triangular pen and hence the name Tikona (or Trinoke) means a Triangle in the local language.
A unique feature of this pen is that the barrel does not have threading for the cap, but instead the grip section has threading which secures the cap. There are a couple of reasons for this design aspect: 1) the shape of the pen appears to be more unified starting from the section; 2) it is possible to have smaller diameter threads for the cap so that the base of the cap can be thin and 3) it allows for a longer section than usual so that the triangular edges of the barrel don't interfere while holding the pen. The section is secured onto the barrel using an O-ring so that while removing the cap, the section is not removed inadvertently.
Update (July 2016): Tikona pen clip will be changed to the Banana clip. These clips have two prongs at its tip which allow for a better grip with the triangular body of the pen. Please see the red pen in the above image gallery.
