Pen Type-B


Orders placed before 10pm (NYC time) ship tomorrow *excluding holidays

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.

Dang I love this pen!!!

Elegance of simplicity

The weight of this pen (brass version) is my favorite thing about it. In my hand, the Pen Type-B rests with purpose and makes every stroke feel deliberate. While I enjoy the fine lines offered by the 0.3mm cartridge, I enjoyed the ease of swapping it out for a 0.5mm cartridge for a bolder stroke line. The way the polished brass breaks in after a couple weeks of use is my next favorite bit. It already looks like a futuristic artifact, an heirloom worthy object.

Absolutely stunning piece of functional art

I cannot stress enough how highly I think of CW&T and their products. The Pen Type B is a beautifully designed pen and the precision that went into making them is remarkable. Everything from the fit and finish, to the way the pen slides down the body, to the magnets that lock it in place make for a lovely experience. Not to mention how nicely it writes as well. One thing to keep in mind is the weight. I have the Polished Brass version, which is the heaviest. So it may take some getting use to, especially with that style of nib. I have bought two Pen Type A's so far (one for me and one as an anniversary gift) and have nothing but praise for this company, their products, as well as their customer service.
