Pen Type-B

Pen Type-B

$160.00


Color

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 (bit.ly/hiteccjp). You can also purchase refills here.

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

Favorite Pen

I love writing with it and always have it in my pocket. I’ve bought 3 over time. The brass Pen Type B is heavy but used for everyday notes. The titanium Pen Type B is used for extensive writing. I love these pens!!!

Pen perfect and it works as a stylus

I accidentally wrote this for the orange dot: this pen is a revelation. The impossible to resist metal-on-metal perfect slide has turned into a daily challenge for me as a pen spinner. The construction matches that of my everyday carry pen: the benchmade stainless. The fact that it can also be used as an iphone is just icing on top but really does come in handy for me as an artist on the subway or marking up a screenshot.

Does not disappoint.

From start to finish, a very simple and satisfying experience. Self proclaimed as ‘overbuilt’, I would debate there is nothing missing, nothing extra, Deiter would be proud. The design is sublime, but the fact that it uses my favorite cartridges made it necessary. Hi-tec .04 fo life.
