Rezon Multi Notebook

Rezon Multi Notebook

The combination of graph paper, sticky notes, flash cards, legal paper and the black college style notebook that was popular on Ghostwriter back in the day could lead to an entire drawer or backpack of writing accessories. Not in the case of Japanese brand Rezon and designer Hide...

INDOCHINO Will Make You a Custom Suit and Leave Your Wallet Intact

Sharpie Stainless Steel Permanent Marker

Sharpie Stainless Steel Permanent Marker

You likely gained an affinity for Sharpie markers sometime in college, when you were adorning your friend's forehead with the appropriate motifs of vulgarity and genitals.  Along those lines, you likely learned about the ink's astounding resilience when your friend returned the ...

Hardcore Hardware Australia TWI01 Pen

Hardcore Hardware Australia TWI01 Pen

You're probably already half way through the checkout process to buy this pen based on the pictures and the fact the brand is named Hardcore Hardware Australia. If you're not, the TWI in the name stands for tactical writing instrument, and this is a "pen" that really doesn't mess...

Rhone Makes Elevated Activewear for Men

Rhone Makes Elevated Activewear for Men

Fellas, we’ve been left behind in the activewear game for too long. For years, activewear for men simple meant loose-fitting clothing that’s so unattractive you won’t mind sweat stains and rips and tears at the seams. Rhone has set out to change that. Rhone is the collective vision of a small group of weekday warriors. They leverage advanced materials and technology to craft activewear that moves with you, stands up to frequent gym sessions and morning runs, and looks good throughout it all. That means you can break a sweat without looking like you’re couching it on a lazy Sunday. Plus, since they refuse to sacrifice performance for profit, you’re getting next-level activewear without making your wallet feel like it just ran a 10K…

Field Notes Expedition Edition

Field Notes Expedition Edition

Finding a portable pad of paper to keep track of your thoughts is not a difficult task. Binding a bunch of pieces of paper together into a pocket-sized notebook is all the rage these days, but the Field Notes Expedition Edition notebooks are just different enough to be cool. They...

TiBolt Titanium Bolt Action Pen

TiBolt Titanium Bolt Action Pen

Seeing as how this is a Kickstarter project for a pen it should come as no surprise that we love it. It's also bolt action, which is our new favorite in terms of pen mechanisms. And while it kind of looks like a few other pens we've featured here before, there are a few things th...

Sandy Relief Notebooks

Sandy Relief Notebooks

The Cool Material office along with most of our employees are located in New Jersey. Despite lost power and a few downed trees, we all made it through Sandy okay. Some of our friends, family and countless others we've never met were not as lucky. In an attempt to aid in the relie...

Sky Wifi Smartpen

Sky Wifi Smartpen

We have an addiction to pens and notebooks. You know this. As much as we love them, and use them on a regular basis, they're inconvenient when it comes to collaboration, archiving and not accidentally being left in a bar. The Sky Wifi Smartpen from Livescribe could solve some of ...

Schrade Tactical Pen

Schrade Tactical Pen

Don't believe what you've heard, pens are not mightier than swords. Sure words can hurt, but have you ever had an arm chopped off by a Bic? Swords freakin' hurt. The Schrade Tactical Pen might be an exception however. Made from CNC machined 6061 aircraft aluminum, the Schrade Tac...

Approved: Pens

Approved: Pens

Many of you reading this, and the guy writing it, can’t justify spending money on what we affectionately refer to as “Rolex class pens.” Those are your Montblancs, Krones, Tibaldis, etc. Spending a couple hundred dollars on a writing instrument that, let’s be honest here, you’re probably going to lose anyway, is ridiculous. Save all that extra money for something less pretentious (like beer) and pick up one of the pens from our list of approved writing instruments.

The X-Pen

The X-Pen

At this point, it's safe to say if we had a single ounce of CAD in our design wheelhouse we would dedicate ourselves to creating pens solely for Kickstarter campaigns. Unfortunately, we don't (yet), so we're going to stick to all of the other Kickstarter pen campaigns out there i...

Camo Bolt Action Pen

Camo Bolt Action Pen

Bullets are the manly equivalent of the bird. As in, put a bullet on it. Immediately cool. Better yet, put a bunch of bullets on it. Short of firing it out of a weapon, there aren’t too many other ways you could possibly have gun related paraphernalia on this pen. Bolt action t...

Solid Titanium Pen and Stylus

Solid Titanium Pen and Stylus

It should come as no surprise to any of you that we have addictions when it comes to cool products. Right now, we’re hopelessly addicted to buying pens on Kickstarter. Aluminum, titanium, steel, stylus, ballpoint, it doesn’t matter. If it’s a pen and it’s on Kickstarter, ...

EiMIM Pen

EiMIM Pen

Most of the pens you own you didn't purchase. They appeared in your home or your bag through some sort of weird pen osmosis. They are fine for scribbling "To Do" lists around the house, but for your office, you're going to want something nicer than a Bic with a bank name on it. T...

Bolt Action Tactical Pen

Bolt Action Tactical Pen

When the adage "The pen is mightier than the sword" was first coined, it is safe to say the Bolt Action Tactical Pen was not in existence. If it had been, the phrase would've needed a small disclaimer. Basically, the Bolt Action Tactical Pen is what you'd get if said pen and said...
