We are staunch believers that everyone should carry a pen with them at all times. But it’s also true that not all of them are created equal. Some barely even qualify as writing instruments, whereas others are superior examples of both well-thought-out design and superb functionality. The Machine Era Field Pen is certainly the latter.
Made from rust and corrosion proof 300-series stainless steel, this pen is well balanced, compact, durable, and dependable. The clip is machined from aerospace-grade aluminum for good tension and security – and it is integrated into the clicking mechanism, giving the whole device a sleek look free of the clumsiness of a top-mounted or bolt-style clicker. It also comes loaded with a Schmidt Megaline pressurized cartridge and fits Fisher Space Pen refills – both of which can write in zero gravity or underwater. For just $84, you can get this excellent example of a true everyday carry pen for yourself. [Purchase]
