"I have searched the length and breadth of the internet and own a dozen Titanium pens but this has by far exceeded one's expectations. A completed and a finished product that lives up to its hype. I can safely and unequivocally say...Built to last! Must have."

- Amarjeet (AUSTRALIA)
"Penfection! I own lots of pens and was still absolutely blown away by the Type-B. I have read the reviews and originally assumed people were exaggerating a little. Nope. This is the real deal. I feel privileged to own such a wonderful piece of functional art. Thank you CW&T!!"

- Jim S. (USA)

A minimal everyday pen, over-engineered to last generations.


The ultimate pen for illustrators, designers, and architects.


Precision machined to create a piston-like effect between the pen and sleeve. The pen falls slowly and makes a nice popping sound when you pull it quickly from its sleeve. 


No visible logo. 

Precision machined flat so it won't roll off your desk.

A super minimal everyday pen, engineered to last generations.

The ultimate pen for illustrators, designers, and architects.


The ultra-high machining tolerances between the pen and sleeve create a piston-like effect. The pen falls slowly into its sleeve and makes a nice popping sound when you pull it out quickly. 


Pen Type-B has no visible logo. 

The brass sleeve purposely doesn't have a coating, so your Pen Type-B can develop its own unique patina over time as you handle your pen. 

Titanium Pen Type-B is available with a matte black ceramic-polymer coating (Cerakote). The coating is durable, but over time it will wear to reveal the titanium underneath. We think it gives a kind of cool and rugged feel.

Pen Type-B in titanium weighs almost half the weight of its brass and stainless steel counterpart. It's got the hardness of stainless steel and the lightness of aluminum. That's really hard to beat. Titanium is the ultimate material. Both the sleeve and the pen are made of titanium.

Order a Pen Type-B with a custom laser engraving on the flat surface of the pen sleeve.

Available with an aluminum case.

MADE IN THE USA

Pen Type-B (along with all of our other pens) are manufactured at a multi-generation machine shop in Vermont. Each pen is carefully made above and beyond the necessary tolerances to ensure a perfect fit between the pen and the sleeve. It takes over 20 highly tuned operations to craft a Pen Type-B.

REFILLS

Pen Type-B ships with a Black Pilot Hi-Tec-C 0.3mm cartridge.

To replace the ink cartridge, simply unscrew the back of the pen with a coin.

Hi Tec-C cartridges are available in 4 line widths and over 30 colors. You can also purchase refills here.

There are also a bunch of other ink cartridges that are compatible with Pen Type-A.

Never knew I could love a pen so much

This pen is so awesome. I wanted a "nice" pen and wanted something that would last and stubbled on to CW&T. This pen is perfect. The weight is substantial enough (i got Matte Titanium), and everytime I pull it out or put it away and hear that "pop", it makes me smile. Excited to use this more and more!

Outstanding

I am a pen freak truth be told. I pen my thoughts, journal and take extensive notes at work. This pen makes those activities more enjoyable and personal. I own two (2) other EDC type pens that I honestly don't think I will use any more now that I have this pen. If you've been looking for just the 'near-perfect' writing instrument I would strongly recommend giving this one a try. It will not disappoint.
