move-pen-4

Do you include a pen as part of your EDC (every day carry)? I have a couple full sized pens in my gear bag, but I don't typically carry a small pen in my pocket for those times when I'm walking around at work and need to write something. Since I'm currently obsessed with pens, [...]

kaweco-al-sport-4

Kaweco might sound like a Japanese company, but it's really a German company. Kaweco has been making dip pens, fountain pens and other writing instruments since 1883.

I thought my quest to find my all time favorite pen ended when I found Uniball Jetstream pens a few years ago. Don't get me wrong, I still like the Uniballs because I don't get too upset if someone walks off with one or I lose one. But I've recently found myself wanting something nicer. [...]

My fascination with pens started as a child when I discovered a box in our shed that held some very old mechanical pens and pencils from my Dad's parents time. I remember "borrowing" those pens to play with them. I wish I still had those writing instruments today, but unfortunately for me and my Dad, [...]

When it comes to journaling, I prefer using paper and a pen. Writing and drawing with pen on paper has always been more enjoyable for me than using my smartphone or computer. In the past, I have had a bad habit of starting to journal only to give up after a few days or weeks. [...]
