Every proper EDC loadout needs a hardwearing pen, so you can jot down crucial details and capture ideas on-the-fly. The full-size Stilwell is The James Brand’s rendition of the compact pen, and it's a reliable go-anywhere writing tool. With a D1 Style Replaceable Ink Cartridge housed in a sleek aluminum body, this ball-point pen is built to go the distance. And it’s small enough to fit in the coin pocket of your jeans, so you can take it everywhere and deploy it one-handed thanks to the attached lanyard. The minimalist writing tool will hold up to any adventure on the horizon.
The pen itself is great. It's a nice compact pen design and feels great in the hand. The only issue that I have with it is the D1 cartridge that the pen comes with does not seem to be of any quality at all as the ink will stop rolling periodically. I also had a complete failure with the cartridge which caused all of the ink to run out the back of the cartridge. Make sure you get decent D1 refills from a brand like Kaweco, Jaymo, Zebra, etc.
