Ateleia Brass Pen And Leather Journal

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2014-10-10

The ATELEIA brass pen and leather journal set was designed to be a functional head-turner. The pen features a minimalist design, that is both slim and weighty in the hand. Although originally designed to house the Pilot Hi-Tec-C cartridges, several other popular refill cartridges fit the housing with the aid of springs and/or spacers. For the journal, slip pockets on the front and rear cover hold two pens securely, while the brass hardware and vegetable tanned leather take on patina and the signs of use as they age. The main body is constructed of one single piece of hide, and held together by brass rivets. The loop closure system prevents the journal from popping open when you don’t want it to do so.

@ Anders Sandholm: The A5 journal should fit larger notebooks - I've tried specifically with Moleskine A5 books and the Muji Easy Open 96 page notebooks. They are a bit snug at first, but as you guessed, the leather does stretch with use. If you have any further issues or doubts about the journal cover you received, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will fix any problems. I hope it gives you years and years of use! Best,
Chris

I would like to retract my last comment, the journal do fit the Leuchtturm 1917 and the webnotebook, I was just to careful of the journal and with a bit of fiddling around the journal fit but its snug. I guess the leather will stretch and form after the journal after a bit of time which would mean a really nice fit. Super happy customer, love the pen love the journal ;)

Just got the pen and the journal (A5) and I really love the pen. It feels solid and very nice writer. On the other hand the journal is a bit of disappointment. I thought you could fit a "normal" A5 journal such as a Leuchtturm 1917 or the Rhoda webnotebook, but you can't closing the journal when the book is fitted. Therefore the only notebook this journal can handle is the thinner staplebound notebook which makes the journal 3x thicker then then notebook itself and sort of defeats its purpose.

Am loving the beautiful pen. It feels great in my hand. Unthreading the top is surprisingly meditative (once I adjusted to not just popping it off). The pen writes well. I used it to mark up a contract today and it just felt good, smooth and hefty...exactly like one wants to feel when dealing with legal agreements! I wish you great success in your venture.

@Anders Sandholm: Sending you a personal
message to break down some different options in more detail, but there are a couple ways to claim both the journal and the pen with both inserts.
Anders Sandholm
Review from Kickstarter
I am a bit confused with how the options are setup. I would like to have a journal and the pen with both inserts, but this is not possible because either I choose the pen with both inserts, or I select the journal with a pen but here I can only have the first insert.... So for people who want a journal can never have the second insert, which is a real pitty

Thank you Chris for the stretch goal release...

Review from Kickstarter
That would be great if there was an option to upgrade to a pen with both inserts.

+1 for the signo DX insert option later...

Review from Kickstarter
David, Your first statement is correct; the stretch goal's target is to release an additional threaded insert. In essence, it will be the same pen but holding different refills. My last comment was an attempt to answer John Delos Santos' question (I interpreted as) asking if we will be selling just the small threaded insert as a stand alone product. As of now, my plan is to sell the pens as complete wholes - one with the 1st iteration insert and another with the 2nd (or a combo reward of both). I appreciate the suggestion to offer a pen with both inserts - I will crunch some numbers to see if that is a possibility. I do want to limit the number of reward packages I offer, though, too many offerings make for a very complicated fulfillment process. Thanks,
Chris

Review from Kickstarter
Would it be possible to make a video with both the larger journal and the small journal. I have a really hard time choosing if I should go with the larger or smaller one and just knowing the size difference would make a huge difference.
David Rolfe
Review from Kickstarter
The stretch target sounded like an additional insert for the same pen - what it sounds like you are saying is that it is going to be a completely separate pen. If you could develop a couple of interchangeable inserts for the same tube then I'd personally say that would be a much better idea.
Christopher Williams
Review from Kickstarter
John, I don't anticipate offering just the inserts in this campaign, but if we hit the stretch goal and release the Signo/EnerGel pen, all backers will be free to switch over from the first iteration pen to the second. There will also likely be a combo pack reward for ordering both pens. Hope this answers your question. Chris

Review from Kickstarter
Would there be an option to purchase the other insert for Uniball Signo and Energel?

Chris,
This looks like a Beautiful minimalist design pen in brass with a great sleeve which is understated but matches the pen perfectly & I can't wait to get my hands on them.

Anders,
Thank you for the suggestion. I am definitely open to adding more sizes in the future.

Arnhem Productions,
You have raised some worthy concerns about how the pen functions. I'll do my best to address a few points, but, ultimately, it's your decision to decide what type of pen fits your needs best when using the journal. When designing a pen for the journal, I wanted one with a cap - and a cap that wouldn't just fall off incidentally. The threads help keep the cap on the pen securely, but, as a consequence, it takes a second or two to remove the cap. I also acknowledge, in certain situations, there isn't a desk or flat surface available to set the cap on. If using the journal, though, the cap fits perfectly in the slip pocket that the pen is usually stowed in - if I'm out and about, I most often put the cap there while writing. While designing, there were certain sacrifices in ultimate utility made in order to create a clean aesthetic. But I do stand by the design and feel confident saying that is highly functional. Those who have bought or reviewed the prototypes also concur that is a functional design. But again, ultimately it is your decision what type of pen best meets your needs. It sounds like a clicky pen might be more along the lines of what you are looking for. There are several excellent clicky pens being produced by small shops and big corporations alike. Karas Kustoms and Tactile Turn have both sold really cool brass pens here on Kickstarter - they would fit in the journal and I won't have any hard feelings if you decide to buy from them. I think they make quality products, just as I believe the ATELEIA pen is a quality, functional, and beautiful product. Hope this helps.

I love the look of the journal, my only concern is the format, in Europe A4/A5... is the leading standard. If you would offer the journal in an A4 format I believe a lot more Europeans would sign up.

Review from Kickstarter
Adam and Byrd, thanks for the compliments. Your feedback and suggestions have been indispensable from the very beginning!
Arnhem Productions
Review from Kickstarter
The more I think about the pen after seeing it, the more concerned I get about its use in the field, the fact that it's twist on and off means there's no real quick way to access the pen, and where would the cap go once I'm using the pen? At a desk sure you could just set it down, but on location somewhere and I could see it getting lost very easily. It's a shame because it looks beautiful but I'm starting to doubt it's functionality. Please let me know what you think.
Adam Miller
Review from Kickstarter
I feel fortunate to have been give early prototypes of both the pen and the wallet, both of which I love. The pen just feels cool to use and looks awesome (for the reasons Byrd stated). And the wallet's design is pretty nifty -- simple and slim, with enough room to hold all the essentials. After two years of use it fits three credit cards, an ATM card, and a couple gift cards on one side; two ID cards, two insurance cards, and a few business cards on the other side; and several bills in the middle. I'm really looking forward to the journal!
Byrd
Review from Kickstarter
This is a great pen. The weight, length and the way it's held when writing is by far one of the nicest I've used. The patina looks great as well. Hoping for the Signo DX stretch goal too. TY...
