Pen Type-C

Pen Type-C



Pen Type-C is a flat, durable bookmark pen.

Perfect for everyday carry in a pocket or tucked in a notebook.

Precision machined to house a high quality cartridge that never dries or leaks.

Bent spring steel protects the tip when not in use. Flip it around to snap into writing position.

The scrappy, unassuming, take me anywhere kid sibling of Pen Type-A and Pen Type-B is here, and comes with a detachable clip.

Thin enough to be a bookmark.

Pen Type-C is 3.5 mm thin. Save that page you are reading, or slip it into your sketchbook. It's also lightweight, so it won't weigh down your pocket.

An ink cartridge that never dries or leaks.

Pen Type-C is designed to fit the Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto ink cartridge. It comes in 15 colors and multiple thicknesses. These cartridges are designed for clicky pens, engineered to be exposed to air and not dry or leak.
To replace, use a new cartridge to snap the old one out. Insert the new cartridge’s tip, and press it into place.

Precision machined with quality and longevity in mind.

As with other CW&T products. Pen Type-C is machined out of high quality materials with longevity in mind. It's made of grade 5 titanium with a glass bead blast finish.

No branding.

You know the drill. We don’t put our names on your stuff.

A detachable clip.

Pen Type-C comes with a durable, stainless steel clip. Keep it anchored to a book, pocket, shirt ... your socks?!

If you'd rather go clipless, you can remove the screws and the clip with a flathead screwdriver.

Available with a custom engraving.

Make yours a little extra with a laser etched mark. We do these in-house, so it will not delay your order.

A Utilitarian Precision Instrument

I received my Pen Type-C last week and have been using it daily ever since. The quality of the design and build is excellent. I have wider thumb pads so the width of the pen is very comfortable for me as a daily pen. The thinness of the pen is all helpful for placing it in a sketchbook as a bookmark and it is not obtrusive when clipping it to the inside of the my t-shirt neck for site meetings (I am an Architect). The clip initially loosened up after a couple days of use but I tightened down the screws with a precision 3mm flat head screwdriver and it appears to be holding. That being said, I didn't apply too much torque to the heads for fear of camming out and stripping the heads. I would like to replace them with square drive screws where I can apply a bit more torque. What is the screw size? (material, depth, head size, etc.). Thank you to Che-Wei + Taylor for designing and manufacturing a great pen! Best-- Ray.

Please, never stop making these

Best pen I've ever used. When I saw you made it in black, grabbed another right away. I hope these two last me the rest of my life.

Functional, sturdy, beautiful

It fits my large hands better than I imagined. Perfect to clip into the sketchbook. Also my son loves to borrow it from me... often. Bravo.

Gifted Pen

I got this as a gift for father's day. He plays a lot of sudoku and he loves it for keeping his place and filling in the boxes.

An amazing little pen

I've had a couple weeks now with my Pen Type-C and absolutely love it. It goes with me everywhere. It's surprisingly comfortable to hold, and while I can't quite achieve the neat little flip, the "cap" is very entertaining to fiddle with. Ultimately it's such a joy to see how so few thoughtfully designed parts can come together to create a perfect tool. I use it for long stretches of writing and quick notes in books. I'm honestly tempted to get another to use exclusively as a bookmark. One thing interesting is the effect of a small anywhere-anytime pen that's also a beautiful object. The beauty of it draws you to use it, and because of it's simplicity the activation energy to start using it is incredibly low. The ultimate effect being you write more! One thing I will mention, not a fault of the pen at all, but the Hi-tec C Coleto cartridges do run out rather quick. Luckily, it's quite satisfying to watch the inkline move down the pen in real-time. This _is_ soured a bit by the fact that as far as I can tell you can only purchase the refills individually wrapped in plastic, which just feels a little wasteful to me. I'm hoping to try out other refills (e.g Uni Style Fit ballpoint ones) to see if they fit and last longer. Anyways, the pen. It's useful, simple, beautiful to see, touch, and use. Highly recommend!
