Pen Type-B

Pen Type-B



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 a 3D printed fancy 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 (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.

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.

Titanium for the win!

I tried the brass version (beautiful, but WAY too heavy for me to comfortably use, even without the sleeve on), and then the Pen Type C, which was much lighter and cheaper but I really missed the traditional, round, pen shape in my hand. The Titanium version of the Pen Type B is the way to go. I splurged for the black matte version, and I have no regrets. It feels great, it writes great. I love using it. Yay!

Comparing to Type A

The profile of Type B makes it more EDC friendly. I do miss having the ruler of Type A readily available especially for BuJo. I also got the case and have to say the craftsmanship on the case is to a lesser degree comparing to the pen. It has that unrefined look probably due to it being 3D printed. Overall, I am very happy with the Type B pen. If you like some weight to your pen, I would recommend getting the non titanium.

Pen type B polished titanium

Everything is good except ink leaks time to time and it leaves some ink on the pen so that ink stains my hand.
