Pen Type-C

"I carry this pen clipped to my wallet so I am never without one. It strikes a great balance between being thin and light enough that it doesn't add annoying bulk, but is still actually comfortable to write with since it's flat and wide enough that it doesn't feel tiny in the hand. Plus, it uses a much nicer refill than any of the other "space saving" pens I've used. It kind of reminds me of a flat carpenter's pencil in the hand. I gave one away to a doctor who expressed interest in it and immediately ordered a replacement!"

- Tim L. (USA)
"The design, the quality, and usability are incomparable. Now my ‘must’ have with me wherever I go. Clips to a notebook perfectly."

- John P. (USA)

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.

Love my Type-C 002

I have a few CW&T items, but this pens is quickly becoming my daily driver. It's light and compact, the .4 hi-tec-c coleto ink feels great and the way the ink is exposed is a really nice touch. Also, I have other "ruler/pens," but this is the first one I've actually used.

Just buy it!!

This is such a great pen! It’s actually perfect for my intended purpose, EDC wallet pen! I own dozens of iconic EDC pens. Fisher Space Pen galore, several modded Zebra F-701s, Parker Jotters, Hinderer Investigators, Fellhoelter TiBolts, USG TiScribes, etc. The Pen Type-C is my favorite to carry. It just disappears in the pocket and it’s almost always a conversation starter when someone sees it! This is my second one as they’re just so very rad!! If you’re even remotely considering this just buy it!

2nd Pen Type-C

Bought this one for my wife. However, it seems due to the powder coating on the bar it doesn’t spin as well as the regular uncoated stainless steel bar. My wife loved the color though.

You will flip for this pen!

Clip it just about anywhere, this pen cam be a bookmark, a tie clip, or just a colorful pen. Flip away the tip guard and you are ready to write, draw or just doodle!

faulty metal pivot bar

Not sure the technical name of this piece but when it arrived it was loose and the alignment was off. It didn't stay in place or rotate around and lock into place as it should. I had to bend it myself little by little to fine tune it. A bit disappointing tbh as I have two if these pens and love them. I can’t fault CW&T too much as I love their company and products, I guess I got a lemon. Pen itself is tip top just the above mentioned element was subpar.
