The Wallet Pen

3" Sterling Silver Pens

A Mighty Pen

In picturesque Charlotte, Vermont, in a building filled with local businesses and artisans, Tom O'Brien is making pens… by hand. Each of his sterling silver Wallet Pens is sized so it fits discreetly into your wallet, checkbook or purse without adding any bulk. It’s tiny, simple and elegant.

You may be surprised that a pen could elicit strong emotions, but longtime Wallet Pen loyalists rave about its performance, utility, and
the pleasure it brings them year after year. We had to find out for ourselves, and it didn’t take long to win over the Daily Grommet team. Once you experience its smooth, crisp strokes, you’ll never want to settle for a throwaway plastic pen. Plus, the Wallet Pen is guaranteed for life, so if you ever have a problem with one, Tom will make it right.

Since it’s easy to tuck into your wallet or purse, you’ll always have the Wallet Pen with you to capture names and addresses, jot down a great book someone just mentioned, or record special memories while you’re in the moment. What will you (or your lucky gift recipients) use it for?

    Hi Tom,

    I was just scratching my head trying to think of a gift for my husband for Christmas. This looks terrific. I have given him a number of fancy expensive pens but they seem to get lost and left places. I like that he can keep it in his wallet (which has not gotten lost yet!). Best of luck to you!

    I got these pens as gifts for friends. Clever, quality, cool. Tom is a craftsman with style. AND, he can personalize the pens with cool is that.

    It is amazing how many people have had my pens for years, like 5 years+ They are amazed they haven't lost them. Part of the reason its that the clip is much stronger than on most pens, it is made of a thick Sterling Wire that hold on forever.

    I was just presented this pen, engraved, for my birthday. It was a very thoughtful gift and has already come in handy several times. It's the perfect size - added zero bulk to my wallet. Absolutely love it.

    Cool pen, but I have to wonder - what about refills for this? Are they easy to find? Expensive?

    @drsar: We sell a set of three refills, right here at Daily Grommet, and they are very reasonably priced. You can find them by clicking on the 'choose an option' dropdown in the shopping area just to the right of the Wallet Pen video.
