Good Made Better

Penwell Craftsman Mini – Smoldered Black


Penwell Craftsman Mini – Smoldered Black

Our Smoldered collection brings the craggy texture and inky blackness of a smoldering campfire log to a number of our goods. This finish exposes the natural grain of the walnut giving it a more dimensional look while still being smooth to the touch. We finish these in a deep black with a satin varnish to really make the texture pop. 

Good tools make work more enjoyable, and the Penwell is no exception. Designed to make the use of capped pens simpler, work just got a shot of pleasure. Writing for leisure? We just made that better too.

Featuring a soft foam insert with an internal taper, the Penwell can accommodate a wide variety of pen cap sizes—the farther you insert the cap, the tighter it's held, allowing you single handed use of your favorite capped writing tool. It accommodates both slip fit and threaded caps, and is particularly handy for stop and go writing as the pen usually doesn't need to be fully capped between uses.

Keeping the Penwell itself secured to your writing surface is a microsuction pad that adheres with simple suction technology as the Penwell is pressed down. No adhesives or glues to bother with, the microsuction pad has a surprisingly strong grip and is easily removed, repositioned, and cleaned for continual reuse.

Our Craftsman Mini takes on the same profile as our concrete Craftsman models, albeit with slab sides and a bit smaller overall size.
