We started Word. Notebooks with the hope of creating the perfect pocket notebook to keep your to-do lists in check. Every design has been a work of passion and we wanted a way to display them when they weren’t in our back pockets. Introducing: The Writer’s Block. Each is manually machined out of raw brass, stainless steel, or low carbon cold-rolled steel, and holds your pen and a couple of pocket notebooks—or your iPhone, business cards, or other items—in a simple but stylish fashion. Its beauty is in its simplicity. A minimal addition that’s ideal for any workspace, the Writer’s Block keeps your pen and notebook right within arms reach when inspiration strikes or you need to jot down a note. Each one is machined in Philadelphia using techniques and machinery that have been around for generations. Right now you can snag one for a discounted rate during its Kickstarter run and add a little machine shop toughness to your desk.
