Squire Pen: Minimalist Craftsmanship From Baron Fig

by: Joseph On  Thursday, November 12, 2015


People don’t use pens as much as they used to, but the people who do have standards of quality that are higher than ever. For them, there’s the Squire pen by Baron Fig, the same company that released the Confidant notebook a couple of years ago.

It’s hard to describe the Squire pen without getting lost in a jungle of adjectives, so hang onto your machete, I’ll be done in a minute: Sturdy, durable, precision-weighted, ergonomically designed, and compatible with capless rollerball ink refills that you can buy at any stationary store (or from Baron Fig itself, if you’d prefer).

The Baron Fig Squire pen is currently burning up Kickstarter here, where it’s taken in more than $35,000 on top of its original $15,000 goal. And good news for procrastinators: You’ve got another month to get in on the action, with pre-orders starting at $50 and deliveries scheduled to begin in March of next year.
