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.

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.

Matt P. (Bethesda, US)
Great pen

Solid construction and feel. Get to use the G2 cartridge I love and I think it writes better in this pen. Now I have a screw capped pen so if it won't mark up my pants and my wife won't kill me when it goes through the wash. Only thing it's missing is a clip so I got another Rustico pen with a clip.

Love! Beautiful, high quality, heavyweight pen.

Rustico is AMAZING!! I haven’t purchased anything from Rustico that I haven’t absolutely loved and been very impressed with. In an age of China-produced and low quality products, it feels great to support a “Made in the USA” business that takes pride and care in delivering the highest quality products available. Upscale products across the board!
