The basic ball-point pen has been around for over 75 years. You’d think someone would have perfected the design by now, but how many crappy, disposable plastic pens have you used in your life? Maybe it’s time to invest in a pen like the Benton. From its sleek, stainless-steel barrel to its metal clip and lanyard-loop clicker, this is a pen built from quality components, which means it won’t leak, snap or crack. Ever. It also takes an easily replaceable cartridge refill, so your ink won’t dry up. The barrel’s dimpled, laser-etched grip and 3/8” diameter make it supremely comfortable to hold, while the clip and lanyard make it easy to stash and pull from a pocket. The James Brand’s Benton is the ball-point pen, perfected.
