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.
