Mind meets hand.
The Benton uses a 304 stainless steel barrel design, which means you won’t crack your cartridge – keeping the ink where it’s meant to be, on the page. With its pusher-mounted lanyard, you can pull it from your pocket easily, or you can keep it at the ready with the PVD-coated steel pocket clip (or both). The Benton will become a staple of your everyday-carry before you know it.
Great overall pen
I was wondering if the $60 was worth it after mixed reviews. It was. I saw on some of the reviews that the pen had metal interior clicker part and the one I got was plastic. It works great, and I will just make sure I don't twist the top part on too tight when I switch the refills. If I find the inside parts will hold up, I'll likely buy a different color as a second.
Very nice EDC pen
The Benton is a very well made writing instrument and it's perfect for a pocket pen. The pen itself is very well built and writes well. It's extremely lightweight which is nice if it's rattling around in your pocket with everything else.
Beautiful pen. However....
Beautiful pen. Design and craftsmanship Personally, I was not impressed by the clicker. I thought the tolerances should be tighter (less wiggle). Reminded me of an ordinary click pen.
I already had a knife that I had bought from y’all awhile back but I lost my brother in-law to suicide last month and told his dad to put the knife from y’all in his coffin and that’s why I ended buying another one. I guess it makes me feel somewhat close to him. And I know he would have loved it but I guess sometimes we give out flowers to late. But I’ll be buying again sometime soon because I told his dad I would get him one. May he R.I.P Darrin Murphy and thank you James for great knifes.
Looks great, but the plunger action could be smoother
I purchased the James based on its unique design and attractive style. I also like the ceramic coating and would have opted for the white limited edition had it been available. My disappoint with the pen is the loose action when depressing the plunger – it does not feel smooth but rather sloppy. I have less expensive pens that feel smoother with what feels like better precision parts. I didn’t consider returning it because it looks spectacular, I just wish the action of the plunger was smoother.
