Let's stop throwing away disposable pens. Let's start writing with something we can keep for generations to come.

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.
Natural antimicrobial properties. Creates a layer of tarnish (patina) that darkens with time and use.

*Patinas are 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.
