4.Ever Pininfarina Cambiano inkless pen 1

I have never spent a lot of money on a pen, although I do thoroughly appreciate a well designed, highly functional tool. The 4.Ever Pininfarina Cambiano inkless pen appears to be one of those tools. Pininfarina and Napkin collaborated to create this hand crafted (in Italy), beautifully sleek, classy pen that was inspired by the [...]

13) Easy Flow

I like pens.  Beats the heck out of carving pictograms into rock.  You know, take a harder rock and scrape it against the softer rock.  The process is tedious but the results do last a long time.  Pens make it a lot easier and, as everyone knows, they are mightier than swords.  If only Ned [...]

l-tech-stylus-pen

Larry's recent go-to gadget discussion of his old Rotring pen reminded me that Levenger has a pen that's a bit reminiscent of those pens, but they cost much less than some of those old Rotrings on the secondary market.  Turns out that Levenger is having a sell this weekend on their L-Tech Plus Stealth Ballpoint [...]

INK machined pen

I don't know why, but I have a fascination with unique or different writing instruments. To be honest, I do not really like writing by hand, and some would say my penmanship is horrendous. But if I had to guess, I would have to say I appreciate what pens and pencils represent. A time when [...]

dunhill_sidecar_pen

Many of you have commented on my pen reviews, as to who would pay $100+ for a 'ballpoint' pen. I still believe in many of these cases that you get what you pay for: a finely machined, ultra-durable writing instrument designed to last a lifetime. That said, I was dancing the Net this morning and [...]

benchmade_1210_endbutterfly

Several years ago, I reviewed the stainless steel BenchMade 1100 pen that I love and continue to use to this day. It is half medieval dagger, half fine writing instrument. The 1100 looks so weapon-like, I am afraid to take it with me through airport security screening; worried that some overeager TSA agent would confiscate [...]

Do any of you remember the Johnson Smith Company ads that appeared comic books back in the 70's? They had tons of cool novelty items that I would drool over, wishing I had money to buy them. I think ThinkGeek is the Johnson Smith Company of the 21st century. These guys always have the most [...]

stifthalter-penclip-11

You have a favorite notebook and you have a favorite pen. How do you keep them together in one place? You could duct tape the pen to the cover of your notebook, which isn't a very elegant solution, or you can get the Pen Clip from Authentics. It's a much more elegant pen holder for [...]
