The Best EDC Pens

As technology pushes us towards a paperless world, the pen has become somewhat of an endangered species. For many, it’s still an invaluable tool, and one that’s worthwhile to carry. If you’ve ever had to borrow a pen and are considering adding one to your daily kit, we’ve got you covered in this installment of Carry Smarter. After consulting with fellow EDCer friends and resident pen experts, Ed Jelley and the Pen Addict himself, Brad Dowdy, we present our top ten pens that are truly mightier than the sword.


These solid pens from BigIDesign combine a pen and a touch-screen stylus into one sleek tool. Constructed from a durable, lightweight aluminum with a super deep-riding pocket clip, the pens are easy to carry...

My Bag EDC :
+ Gerber Multitool
+Camera (either Canon G9 or FujiFilm X10)
+Larger Moleskin notebook + Caran D’Ache pencil Editor’s Note: Interesting carry, nice and streamlined too. Everything looks good together and should work cohesively, though if I had to make a suggestion I’d say maybe look into the Spyderco Ladybug SS to replace your KISS. It’s another small minimalist knife that would fit your aesthetic but has better steel, but no pocket clip unfortunately… Otherwise, keep it up, and thanks for sharing!
