Mover & Shaker Pens Built For Writing on the Go

The one issue with 90% of the pen projects posted on Kickstarter is they are so elaborate that they really only make sense for using at your desk. Let's be honest, if your jotting notes on the go, a pen with a threaded cap or an aluminum holster isn't going to be the ideal writin...

Apollo Technical Pen and Drafting Scale

Apollo Technical Pen and Drafting Scale

Do we need another pen from Kickstarter? Probably not. Did we back the Apollo Technical Pen and Tri-Scale anyway? Of course. Why? We have a problem with gorgeous writing instruments. The Apollo has a lot in common with the first Kickstarter pen because of the pen/ruler combo, ref...

Nock Co. Pen Cases

Nock Co. Pen Cases

With the amount of Kickstarter pens we've purchased and written about, it's amazing no one has released a serious pen case through the popular crowdfunding site before now. If we could pick a dream team of guys to design a pen case we'd want to buy, it'd be the two guys behind th...
