How about the pens we carry? One company I have been buying from lately is Karas Kustoms . They are a US company in Mesa, Arizona. They have several pen options, and continue to expand their line. They have a pen specifically designed for EDC called their Karas Kustoms EDK Pen . I'll let you read all about it at their site, and then let us know what you think! Karas' The Cube- Notebook is a really cool item too. It is a solid, heavy chunk of aluminum designed to hold three pens and two or three small notebooks. It sits solidly on your desk and stays put if bumped.
