It’s good to always have a pen handy; it’s a fundamental piece of EDC gear. But sometimes a full-size pen can be too much for everyday carry. That’s why we created the Stilwell; the TJB take on the compact pen. It’s small in size, but punches well above its weight class. With its minimal form, it will easily ride in your pocket all day, but when it’s time to do work the Stilwell is all business.
The Stilwell fits perfectly in your coin pocket, but it’s easily deployed with one hand using the removable lanyard. The lanyard tucks away inside the cap when in use, and is designed to be rattle-free. To ensure that the Stilwell writes well in whatever conditions you get yourself into, we use a black D1 roller-ball ink cartridge. The D1 cartridge is ubiquitous; easily found all over the world. With its titanium or aluminum construction, it’s designed to stand up to hard daily use. The Stilwell uses a triple O-ring construction to securely lock the cap in place, in both the open and closed position.
The Benton uses a 304 stainless steel barrel design, which means you won’t crack your cartridge – keeping the ink where it’s meant to be, on the page. With its pusher-mounted lanyard, you can pull it from your pocket easily, or you can keep it at the ready with the PVD-coated steel pocket clip (or both). The Benton will become a staple of your everyday-carry before you know it.
