A minimal everyday pen, over-engineered to last generations.

The ultimate pen for illustrators, designers, and architects.

Precision machined to create a piston-like effect between the pen and sleeve. The pen falls slowly and makes a nice popping sound when you pull it quickly from its sleeve. 

No visible logo. 

Precision machined flat so it won't roll off your desk.

A super minimal everyday pen, engineered to last generations.

The ultimate pen for illustrators, designers, and architects.

The ultra-high machining tolerances between the pen and sleeve create a piston-like effect. The pen falls slowly into its sleeve and makes a nice popping sound when you pull it out quickly. 

Pen Type-B has no visible logo. 

The brass sleeve purposely doesn't have a coating, so your Pen Type-B can develop its own unique patina over time as you handle your pen. 

Titanium Pen Type-B is available with a matte black ceramic-polymer coating (Cerakote). The coating is durable, but over time it will wear to reveal the titanium underneath. We think it gives a kind of cool and rugged feel.

Pen Type-B in titanium weighs almost half the weight of its brass and stainless steel counterpart. It's got the hardness of stainless steel and the lightness of aluminum. That's really hard to beat. Titanium is the ultimate material. Both the sleeve and the pen are made of titanium.

Order a Pen Type-B with a custom laser engraving on the flat surface of the pen sleeve.

Available with an aluminum case.

Pen Type-B (along with all of our other pens) are manufactured at a multi-generation machine shop in Vermont. Each pen is carefully made above and beyond the necessary tolerances to ensure a perfect fit between the pen and the sleeve. It takes over 20 highly tuned operations to craft a Pen Type-B.


Pen Type-B ships with a Black Pilot Hi-Tec-C 0.3mm cartridge.

To replace the ink cartridge, simply unscrew the back of the pen with a coin.

Hi Tec-C cartridges are available in 4 line widths and over 30 colors ( You can also purchase refills here.

There are also a bunch of other ink cartridges that are compatible with Pen Type-A.

Great, with one exception.

I've got the titanium version of this pen. It's a bit messy sometimes, but it looks, feels, and writes great. I ordered this pen with the titanium Herring Blade and the titanium Key Wrangler. The trio make a great everyday set.

I own lots of pens and was still absolutely blown away by the Type B. I have read the reviews and originally assumed people were exaggerating a little. Nope. This is the real deal. I feel privileged to own such a wonderful piece of functional art. Thank you CW&T!!

Titanium Pen Type-B

My overall experience with the Pen Type-B has me almost at a lost for words. I have been carrying the pen everyday since it arrived. It fits perfectly in the hand. At first it felt a little big with the sleeve on, but now, after using it for a while, I've grown quite accustomed to the feel. I have a collection of hundreds of machined pens some being quite expensive as well, and the Pen Type-B ranks in my top 5. It might actually be the best pen I own. I just want to thank CW&T for making such a wonderful product. A few family members were interested in it as well. It's definitely a pen to turn heads, and the precision engineering is to be marveled at. I have the brass version on my radar. Would be interested in an all stainless steel version with a stainless steel sleeve also. If you guys end up making that version, I'd love to get one. Thanks again Dan

One Pen for One Life

The pen is expertly machined, has a great weight to it, writes smoothly and does impress onlookers (even from six feet away). It seems indestructible. I’ve used this to write on paper when it was -2C (roughly 28F) outside and had no problems getting the ink to flow. The anti-roll feature is also a nice touch of considerate design and engineering. Unforeseen consequence: a Pavlovian response that ushers in a surge of ‘geterdone’ creative mentality when you hear the satisfying pop when unsheathing this work of art.
