We love Hi-Tec-C pens! Pen Type-A is a stainless steel replacement for the Hi-Tec-C's cheapo plastic housing. Read more

Lots of you saw the pen featured on Fab.com today. It's a stainless steel pen in a ruler sleeve that bears an uncanny resemblance to Pen Type-A. Thanks for your emails and messages bringing this to our attention. This was a complete surprise to us when we saw it. Just to be clear, we are not affiliated with those pens in any way, except that we immediately recognized Allen from the images on their site. He is the US half of the two person duo we hired to manufacture the pens in China. (He hugged us when we last saw him!)
We’re looking into this and we’ll update you when we find out more.
Thanks for all your support. The adventure continues!
Remaining pens will be shipping out shortly (early next week). We did have a small delay with the screws we've been waiting for. The family run Vermont shop had a family emergency, but they're back on their feet and screws are shipping to us in the morning. (We've all had a tough week, but theirs was definitely the worst. Our thoughts are with them). Once we have all those screws, we'll assemble them and ship them out.
lots of love
time for sleep
