The Journeyman Art Kit

The Journeyman Art Kit by Red Clouds Collective is sort of like Nock Co.’s Hightower bifold, but made from leather rather than nylon. Holds three pens on one side, and a notebook on the other. The Journeyman comes with a notebook and three micron pens (01, 03, and 05). Available in walnut (pictured above) or black for $135.

Nock Co. — Pen Cases and Writing Accessories

It’s been nine months since we first wrote about Nock Co., the pen-and-paper accessories startup co-founded by our friend Brad Dowdy. I won’t belabor any childbirth references here (well I guess I just did), but I’m excited to say that their store is finally open for business. If you’re like us and partial to nice pens and Field Notes notebooks, Nock Co.…

‘The Display’ — Pen and Notebook Holder

Mike Dudek, the guy who writes about pens over at The Clicky Post, also handcrafts some very nice pen-and-notebook holders. My favorite of the bunch is called ‘The Display’, because it displays your pens nicely (up to 5) and also holds a few Field Notes notebooks.

The Move Pen

I’m one of those people who always finds a way to lose pens, no matter what I do. I’ll leave one in a specific spot, only to find that it was somehow magicked away the next time I need it.

Ranging from the The Chimneytop, a mini pop-up case with a single zipper for 6-7 pens to The Brasstown, a zippered roll case for pens, pencils, small tools and more. All of Nock Co’s items are…

The Best Fine-Tip Gell Ink Pen: Uni-ball Signo DX 0.38

For a long time the well-known Pilot G2 0.38mm was my favorite daily driver pen. I love the ultra-fine tip because it’s fine but not over-the-edge fine like a 0.28mm. I love that the tip is just a little bit scratchy because I find that it makes it easier to write with. I love that it’s gel ink. And I especially love…

The Pilot G2 0.38mm Gel Ink Pen

On a recent episode of The B&B Podcast, Ben Brooks and I got into a discussion about pens. All you need to know is that the Pilot G2 0.38mm gel pen is just about the best pen money can buy. If I have to use any other pen I almost prefer not to write at all.
