The Messograf Pen SHOP

Your average guy uses an an average pen: unremarkable and cheap. It writes, and that's the extent of its talents (maybe you occasionally use it to pensively chew on). But considering we all use a writing implement virtually every single day, it makes sense that aforementioned implement incorporates a little more into its repertoire. The Messograf pen is just that.  Actually it's "just that" and a whole lot more, incorporating a ruler, calipers, tread gauge, thread scale.... the list goes on. It also happens to be a smooth refillable ballpoint, as well as fashioned from solid metal in a handsome utilitarian shape.   It's a definite step up from a Bic, though some would make the argument writing in the dirt with a stick is a step up from a Bic. ... check it out

Bitches Imma Holla At Notebooks

Notebooks come in handy for all kinds of things—like making to-do lists or remembering brilliant ideas—but they’re also convenient for jotting down phone numbers.

EDC Pen

Spend enough time using anything and you're bound to come up with some little improvements and tweaks the original creator didn't think of. When independent designers are pumping out pens on Kicstarter at the frenetic pace they are, it becomes even more relevant. This is especially true because when you come up with ... continue reading

Triumvir Tri-Color Pen

We already have plenty of pens from Kickstarter. They run the gamut in materials, operating mechanisms, colors and cost. We're buying the Triumvir anyways because a) we have to collect them all, and b) we don't have a tri-color pen from Kickstarter. It's actually kind of baffling to us that it took someone this long ... continue reading

Pens of Kickstarter

Thanks to Kickstarter, putting pen to paper is hardly a thing of the past. In all fairness it never really went away, but Kickstarter helped put lots of cool options in our hands, bags and desk drawers. They all have a few things in common: they’re better than anything you’d find in a big box store; they’re pricier than a crate of BICs and they’re generally made out of a durable material like aluminum or brass. Here are some of our ... ... continue reading

FriXion Erasable Pens

Erasable pens aren't new. Good erasable pens are. Most of the ones you can find at your local drug store are junk and leave clear evidence of your writing after you've "erased" the ink. These Pilot FriXion Erasale Pens finally get the idea right. The thermo-sensitive ink in the different pens (and highlighter) allow ... continue reading

Titanium Bolt Action Pen

A good pen is an investment. Unfortunately, that investment is usually in a writing instrument that is, as best we can put it, "stuffy." The Titanium Bolt Action pen is not. Designed by Rainer Wenning and knifemaker Thomas Braunagel, the Titanium Bolt Action Pen is as fine a writing device as it is a self-defense tool. ... continue reading

Karas Kustoms knows hows to make a custom pen. The Render K was good. The Bolt was great. It was only a matter of time before they came out with another pen that we needed to add to the stable. That time is now. That pen is the RETRAKT. It's somewhere between the Render K (knurled styling by the pocket clip) and The ... continue reading
