Care Instructions

Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.

Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!

Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleanerfor additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

Wonderful pen!

Taking G2 refills is great for me. Very well made & very retro! That's for your quick service!

5 year journal and Machine Era Brass Pen(s)

I have purchased many items over the past few years from Rustico and every time I have received my items on time (if not earlier) and the quality of all items is first rate. I purchased the 5 year journal for my daughter who is graduating from college in May 2023, so I will add to the review when I give it to her, but I am impressed with the quality of the leather, paper, and of course the concept. As for the Machine Era Brass Pen, I have now purchased 5 total and will be back for more. I have one in my car, one in my pocket most days, and you cannot do wrong by giving one as a gift. My brother received one for his birthday last year and he loves it. Rustico is fantastic to work with and I have never been let down on the quality. Thank you, and I will be ordering other gifts in the coming months/years from you.

The Machine Era Original Brass pen was pure perfection. The weight was substantial yet the shape was thin. It writes so smoothly - it glides across the page.

Rick Hunter (Grandview, US)
Great Open!

I love this pen. I use it constantly, even at work. I get a lot of compliments on it, especially how it feels in ones hand.

Marc Sadovnic (Ithaca, US)
Great pen for your pocket

I love this Machine Era Classic pen. It sits unobtrusively in my pocket when not in use and is well balanced and writes beautifully when the cap is screwed on. I’m a lefty and appreciate its symmetry. Great price, quickly shipped. I’m very happy with this order.
