Pocket pens are a sneaky little side hobby for me. I enjoy the creativity of the designs and how they overcome the constraints of the pocket pen brief. It’s remarkable how many different solutions there are to the same problems. And as a result I’ve ended up with quite a few over the years, several of which I’ve reviewed here.
But one thing I haven’t done is a roundup of pocket pens, and I figured that might be useful to show a size comparison and some of the trade-offs you might make when picking one.
In this video I cover the Kaweco Sport and Art Sport, the Schon Pocket Six in brass, the Ensso Piuma Pocket in titanium, and the Namisu N1 in titanium. I wish I still had the Montegrappa Gnomo to include!
Coming soon I’ll be able to add the Elbwood Pocketmaster and Gravitas Pocket to the list too — but I think this is a good start.
What’s your favourite pocket pen?
