Yes, the stock caps (I think...) are underneath. These were an aftermarket add-on, or at least some of them were
I'm guessing that hitting one of those keys off-axis might make them a tad bindey? I always assumed that was why they stepped them, to force you to hit them dead centre!
Zero binding on this one, but I'm sure that was the reason for stepped caps on some keyboards at least. I'm not a typist, so having big targets would really help in my case. Preferably the size of closed fists when using Microsoft.

I don't need those stepped key extenders or whatever you're supposed to call them, but I wouldn't mind having them anyway just for novelty's sake.

Is that a pen or a bovine impregnation device?

Maybe? I actually dont know much about the pen. I got it over 30 years ago. I do know it still works even though I've never replaced/refilled it.

I call it my "fish pen"

Maybe the chunky-butt shape means it has a giant inkwell rather than the usual tube? It's weird as hell, I like it.

I dont think so, because it uses those refill cartridges.. D1 I think?

Mostly it's just uncomfortable to hold :D

It does have an interesting "skin", kinda velvetty fishy thing. It feels like I imagine a plastic dolphin would feel like. :)
