Machined Brass Bolt Pen

If you've graduated from using just hotel freebie pens and are in the market for a new writing instrument, check out the Machined Brass Bolt Pen. The machined pen's bolt action makes it fairly addictive to flick open and shut and, at 2.8 ounces, it has a seriously substantial feel to it. There is no finish used, so ... continue reading

BAUX Pen

As you can clearly see from our backing history, we kinda have a thing for Kickstarter pen projects. Seriously, some of them are so similar and we still back each one. The BAUX Pen is slightly different! Yes, they're machined aluminum pens, like many others you've seen on the site, but what we like about these guys ... continue reading

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 Hideo Kawamura. They've combined all these ... continue reading

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 favor the night before your Geo final. ... continue reading

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 around. The dome shaped crown of the ... continue reading

Field Notes Expedition Edition

Finding a portable pad of paper to keep track of your thoughts is not a difficult task.

They feature Yupo Synthetic "paper" that's ... continue reading

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 that separate it from the competition. ... continue reading

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 relief efforts, we've created these Sandy ... continue reading

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 those problems. The wand-sized pen actually ... continue reading

The Schrade Tactical Pen might be an exception however. Made from CNC machined 6061 aircraft aluminum, the Schrade Tactical Pen provides you with a self-defense ... continue reading

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. ... continue reading

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 in the meantime. Like, for instance, ... continue reading

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 to release and retract and the pen. Rifle ... continue reading

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, we want it. There does seem to be one ... continue reading
