While elegant pens are common in the workplace, elegant pencils are not. Show your affinity for lead with the Sharp Kerry Mechanical Pencil from Pentel ($18). Available in both 0.5mm and 0.7mm models, the pen features a dual-purpose cap, silver accents, and is hand-assembled using watchmaker’s tools. Plus, it has a really cool name — maybe they are working on a “Dull Bush” model as well.
The CollegeCase ($30) is a stylish binder that helps college students organize important paperwork like bills, schedules and telephone numbers from chicks. It's got several tabs and pockets to help manage personal and financial stuff and also, somewhat strangely, has "advice on banking, credit cards, bills, health, travel, employment, cars, insurance and more." We're pretty sure some non-college guys could put this thing to use too.
We typically aren’t huge fans of gel ink pens, but the Ion Pen from Cross ($25) isn’t your ordinary pen. There is an assortment of different accessories available for the line of sturdy pens, including lanyards — and the design lets you see the color of the ink inside the pen. Oh, and the pen clicks closed in a way that cuts its height nearly in two, instead of in a way that causes ink to leak all over your shirt pocket.
