A good pocket pen is one of the staples of our everyday carry (EDC), so it’s no surprise that EDCpen piqued our interest. Machined from your choice of aluminum, stainless steel or brass, EDCpen is rugged, lightweight (the aluminum version weighs just 1.1-ounces), and measures a mere 4.5-inches long when capped. Fittingly, it writes using an equally rugged Fisher SpacePen PR4 cartridge that works upside down, under water, and – predictably – in space.
