Saddleback adds the Copper Pen to their product line


Saddleback has started offering two new writing instruments to their product line. The Copper Pen comes in a simple and fancy version. The pen itself is the same, but the leather holder/protector is different between the two versions. The 5 ⅛” long Copper Pens feature a hand-hammered barrel made of 100% copper which will develop a patina over time. The barrel has been designed to use BIC ballpoint ink cartridge refills. The simple version of the Copper Pen has a short full-grain leather grip, while the fancy version of the pen features a longer grip that also doubles as a protector that will cover the point when you’re not using the pen. Although I’m not excited about the fact that the pens are designed to use a BIC refill (ick), I can’t help but love the look. The pens are priced at $19 and $25 and are available now. Please visit Saddleback Leather Company for more info and to place an order.

    I know copper is fashionable now but it makes your hand stink – I bought a copper flashlight and have learnt my lesson! Brass is far better although copper is a nicer (IMO) colour.

      That’s what the leather grip is for.

      Copper is anti-microbial.
      The smell means it’s real and not a cheap knockoff.
      Off course you would need to use it without the leather.
