"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!!"

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.

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.


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.

Would love support for 0.7 ink types. Ink arrived exploded so had to replace with new cartridge. Otherwise absolutely beautiful object and gift!

Pen Type B

Good. I just wonder where to get the refill ink. I wanted to order it at your store but it was sold out. And which one makes the boldest text? As the line is indeed very thin (we¬īre not architects, so.. ;))

Pen Type-B Review No.2

This is the second pen I get from CW&T - the first one caught the eye of a dear friend and was ceremoniously gifted; what is a gift if it is not precious? Either way, I missed this pen so much I didn’t last a week without it. And again, I cannot praise the high level of craftsmanship and enjoyment I get out of using this as my daily writer. There is something about the heft and authority that comes with taking this solid machined work of art and putting thoughts into form. I am forever grateful that such a pen exists and hope (selfishly) that they continue to be available for the entirety of my life. Thank you CW&T for all you do! -GK

Love it, Love it, Love it. Awesome pen

Love it! I wish I could purchase one hundred of these pens and give them to everyone I know. Hands down it is the best pen I've ever written with. -John

Very impressive!

After reading most of the reviews on this pen, I had high expectations. Well, this pen has met all those expectations! The machine work on this pen and sleeve are immaculate, super impressive. If you appreciate excellent metal machine work, you will enjoy this pen a lot, even just from a technical standpoint. It also makes a great pen, with the coveted Hi-Tec-C refills. I did try another refill, a Pentel LRN5 (which I believe is on the compatibility list), but could not get it to fit in the barrel, it was slightly too large? So, I happily went back to the Hi-Tec_C refill, which are excellent. If you are on the fence, I say give it a shot, I know I am glad I did! I’m ready for the next one, the Pen Type A, but they are out of stock :(
