Let's stop throwing away disposable pens. Let's start writing with something we can keep for generations to come.
At Hemlock & Oak, we're passionate about stationery that is made in North America. We'd like you to have access to high quality items and feel good about supporting ethically and environmentally-sound products. A practical and quality pen is a perfect companion to our Signature Planner, but they are not easy find.
Enter Tactile Turn. These pens are works of art that are machined and hand-assembled in Texas, started by Will Hodges with the intention of creating pens that could withstand a lifetime of use. These all-metal pens are simple and elegant, and use a Side Click mechanism which is incredibly satisfying in both feel and sound.
Tactile Turn is a company that's all about local, and we're happy to stock their products.
- Copper patinas matte with use
Natural antimicrobial properties. Creates a layer of tarnish (patina) that darkens with time and use.
- Bronze patinas with use
Alloy consisting mostly of copper and tin. Machines beautifully and, like copper, will patina with time and use.
Tough, lightweight, and extremely corrosion resistant. The best-selling material Tactile Turn works with.
Exists in small quantities, hence the added expense. Resistant to corrosion and resembles a dark grey titanium.
The pens shown in product photos are size Short (5.3").
*Patinas are a protection that coats over metals like bronze and copper, and they are considered an artistic effect. If you prefer the original shine, you can polish patinas with a metal polisher such as brasso.
