Product Description


From the Manufacturer


Pen Type-A is an homage to our favorite writing utensil, the Hi-Tec-C. We’ve been using this pen in its plastic housing for years, until we decided that these coveted cartridges deserved a more durable home.


The sleeve doubles as a straight edge and a measuring instrument. Its edges are clean and sharp, lasting evidence of the precise machining processes that were crucial to its construction. Drop the pen into the sleeve to watch it slide in slowly. Give it a final push so the sleeve can grip the pen and prevent it from slipping back out. Pull the pen out quickly and hear a light popping sound. These effects are a result of high tolerances between the pen and the sleeve that create a pneumatic seal, kind of like a piston.

No Logo

There is no visible branding on the surface of Pen Type-A. Since a pen is such an intimate object, it is important for us to be extremely discreet with our logo. Who wants to see someone else’s name on something they own? However, hidden under the coin screw is the tiny CW&T inscription. It’s there just in case you or your grandkids want to figure out where it came from.
