Pen Type-A: A Minimal Pen

Pen Type-A: A Minimal Pen

People that live in the Far East have access to a lot of really cool stuff that never makes it way stateside, and we’re not talking Hello Kitty and schoolgirls. Along with sweet kicks and some foreign soil only automobiles, there is a pen that’s well worth importing. It’s called the Pilot Hi-Tec-C and the odds of finding them in the US (even if you’re Nicolas Cage) are quite low. Which is why the design firm CW&T out of Brooklyn decided to improve upon what they think is the perfect disposable pen. Pen Type-A is the result of what we can only assume was countless espresso fueled, late night design meetings. Made out of 304 stainless steel, the sleeve for Pen Type-A doubles as a ruler (cm and inches) and has just enough space to create an effect like a pneumatic cylinder. What that means is that it slides in slow and smooth and makes a cool popping noise when it pops out.

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
