EDC goods are supposed to be a lot of things: Pocketable: Check. Convenient: Check. Lightweight hardwearing? Checkity check. Full-sized? Not usually. But EDC specialist The James Brand makes taste out of the unusual. Such is the case with one of its more recent entries to the EDC fold: the collapsible Stilwell travel pen.
The James Brand Stilwell is a humble ballpoint at heart, that’s equally capable of transcription whether in its truncated state (just 3.5 inches, fit for a memo pad) or its fully deployed form (5.4 inches and…ready for action?).
Stilwell Travel Pen Features
From the outside looking in, the Stilwell travel pen might seem to overstate its intended understatement. But to avid everyday carriers, the architecture and functionality possessed by the deployable pocket pen is…notable (yeah, I’ll see myself out, just gimme a sec).
When the James Brand drew up the Stilwell, it must have taken lay of the everyday carry land, guided by the question “what’s missing here?” From there, the tastemaker/norm-shaker developed the collapsible pen’s thoughtful form, utility, stamina, and uniquity:
- Extra-light aluminum construction (just 0.71 ounces)
- Collapsible dual sheath assembly
- Triple-gasketed (ipso facto, ultra-secure) pen cap closure
- Accompanying lanyard (because keyrings are for those lesser EDC pens)
- Easily replaceable D1 cartridge
James Brand Stilwell Options & Pricing
The James Brand originally offered the Stilwell travel pen in three astute finishes: black, silver, titanium. At the time of writing, only black and silver remained. A Stilwell may very well last forever, but its production run is finite. So, once the supply runs out, that’ll be all The James Brand wrote.
Precise engineering, hardwearing aluminum, utile portability, and extensive potential comes at a cost – about $50 MSRP. But if an aluminum writing implement is your kind of metal, traipse over to Huckberry and get your EDC-hungry hand on one.
