We offer a range of weights and materials for your preference. Our most popular heavy option is the brass pen, weighing in at 3oz it has a significant weight in the hand and is adored by some as a desk pen and others as an every day carry.
Our lightest option is the aluminum pen. The refined machining of this nearly light white metal makes for a 1oz pen that writes like a dream, feels great in the hand, and will survive everyday carry for a lifetime while picking up a beautiful patina.
The titanium pen is our most sought after metal pen for those with a special appreciation for titanium’s exceptional material qualities, the perfect balance of weight and durability have made the go-to metal of choice in aerospace, medical devices, athletic gear and specialized consumer goods.
Each pen comes with a Schon DSGN Notebook, made as a collaboration with Write Notepads in Baltimore MD (where Ian Schon grew up).
When I initially designed these pens, I was making them one by one in my garage on my 1940s Clausing lathe. After sharing these pens with friends and family, I knew it was time to take the leap and launch a small batch production, which I chose to do locally in Massachusetts. The pens are turned from solid barstock and finished to give each different material a distinct look. I found joy in carrying pens that were made in a way that was meaningful to me and out of materials that were interesting due to their weight, feel, look or their changing characteristics overtime, like oxidation and patina. Sharing these pens with the world has been a way for me to support my local manufacturing economy in Massachusetts and also has given me a a platform for experimenting with new manufacturing processes, finishes and products.
I always had a fascination with heirloom objects or objects built so solidly that they could potentially outlast the user. I hope you enjoy this pen, forever.
