Dr. KT with original colors.

The Dr. KT is a pen mod invented by JEB member Ryo. Although the original name is derived from Dr. Grip tips being modified with a Keityo body (hence the "Dr." and "KT"), variations of the mod are often simply called "KT" mods, even if they do not use a Keityo Sign Pen. The mod became widespread during 2008 and was considered one of the heaviest mods at the time. This caused some controversy regarding whether it was appropriate to spin, and possibly rely on, pen mods with comparatively large momentum. Presently, pen mods heavier than the Dr. KT, such as the Buster CYL, are common, and most conversations regarding the merits of using high-momentum mods conclude that while lighter mods require more finger control, it is one's personal choice to spin whatever mod satisfies one's desires.
