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.

No one's allowed to borrow this pen

The smoothest writing I've ever done. I love this pen. I'll probably end up collecting all the varieties of this collection, the texture is so nice to hold and it has a good weight to it. I was turned onto these when my husband got me the journal and pen gift set for our anniversary, and I've been using the one that came with the journal for over a year. Unfortunately the ink refills are sold out, so I decided to invest in a whole new pen, and I think I like this one even more than the first. Definitely recommend!
