Grafton – The Perfect EDC Pen

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2015-11-17

The thoughtfully designed, buy-for-life EDC pen that won’t break the bank. (Takes Pilot G2 and Fisher Space Pen refills) We here at Everyman put a lot of thought into the items we carry with us everyday, and next to our wallet the thing we care most about is our pen. While everyone has their favorite pen, we all have things we’d change or improve about them. People who love the Pilot G2, wish they weren’t plastic, throw-away pens. People who love the Zebra F-701 wish the clip was stronger and wrote more smoothly. And people who love the Fisher space pen wish for a clicky-pen version with a better grip. After scouring EDC forums it seemed to us that there is a void in the market for a well designed, refillable, buy-for-life pen that takes G2 and Space Pen refills AND that doesn’t break the bank… so… we set out to create what we think is the Perfect EDC pen. We started our design by taking our favorite elements from pens we’ve been carrying for years and then incorporated those into a thoughtfully designed, 100% aluminum pen body. Designed to fit in with your minimal everyday carry, built to last and priced about $20 cheaper than it’s closest competitor – the Grafton is the EDC pen you’ve always wanted.

well my pen just gave up the ghost. i had it clipped into a notepad (i.e. not even in use) and it came unthreaded and fell apart. i lost some of the inner workings and its dead weight. that threading near the grip just wasn't staying snug.

I still haven't received my pens, it's been a fucking year.
Not happy.

I cannot really judge the quality of the 2 pens I bought, I wrote just a few sentences and the refills gave. I had ordered 6 refills with the pens but all of them gave up after a short while. not a happy camper

Calling this pen EDC is at least disingenuous.

My push button on the top broke while carrying it in my pocket. Now the pen is useless... :-( looking at other comments seems that this is happening to others and I was surprised that the piece holding the cap on was a little plastic stem. Other than that I did like the pen.

I emailed over a month ago and haven't heard back. I ordered two pens, the black and the silver. The screws for the black one appear to be too small or stripped as I can't tighten them down. The clip ends up sliding back and forth, or one of the screws just falls out. Luckily it happened at my desk and I was able to retrieve the screw, but as of right now it's sitting in a drawer. Is it possible to get a replacement or a refund for the black one?

Review from Kickstarter
Had the tip of the pen pop off on my the other day. Not at the thread above the grip rings, the very tip. Splattered ink everywhere! Good grief... Any plans to fix this (and the other) design flaws?

Review from Kickstarter
Terrible clip. I am a teacher and constantly carry pens around with me. The clip is important to me allowing it to stay in my pocket well but this clip cannot hold up to just about any amount of use. I had two separate pens loose their clip since the school year started only a few months ago and had not used my pen prior to the school but once or twice to test out the ink. I am really disappointing.

As per instructions the clicker button was crocked, I untight, and was tightened, when the plastic broken. Today I have an useless pen, unless there are parts for repair.
Jason Greenlee
Review from Kickstarter
Terrible quality. Used this pen for 1 week, and it broke in 2 places. The aluminum is awful (already marked/scratched and bent), the screws have loosened (one missing now), and the clicking button snapped within the pen housing so the ink cartridge can no longer be retracted.

great to see the feedback from satisfied backers. I am still waiting for my pens. After 4 months or trying to contact someone, it still no pens and no replies.
am I the only one being conned?

NOT worth the $35 that they are charging. The aluminum body is soft and easily damaged (short fall to tile bent the tip opening in to make it unusable, until I used A PAPERCLIP to bend it back out), and the screws will not tighten enough to keep the clip in place (others have mentioned this problem, maybe wrong screw selection or, again, too soft material). After using for several months I can say save your money and go with another established brand that's made in America. This pen feels and performs cheaply for the price.

Review from Kickstarter
After having a pen that I loved for some many years go out of production I searched every where for a replacement and i found it with the Grafton Pen, I have large hands and it fits nicely and the weight is perfect. However being made of aluminum when it fell it dented the tip of the pen and now the pen doesn't stay out and is no longer working. Not sure if there is any way I can get this fixed. Are there parts I can buy?

I also loved my pen -- the plastic center strut that you push in snapped off on mine as well. Is there a way to get this replaced, because it is a really great product. Thanks!

I loved my pen -- right up until if fell onto the carpeted floor & the plastic center strut that you push in snapped off. Is there a way to get this replaced, because it is a really great product. Thanks!

I have now owned several of the Grafton pens for a number of months now, and have to say, without reservation, these are the best pens I have ever used or owned. Most excellent. Perfect balance, diameter, weight, and flexibility in refill selection. Truly a joyful writing instrument. Thanks!

Review from Kickstarter
I have had a previous issue with the clip which bent out too far on first receiving the Grafton. This was resolved by unscrewing the clip and bending the clip back. Today, after the Grafton was accidentally 'borrowed' by a client and returned, the clip was bent out again. This time unscrewing the screws and bending the clip has proven futile. The screws won't screw back in with the clip. Without the clip, the screws will screw in. This implies that: - 1. The screws are too short, or
2. The threads of the screws or the body are not machined well, or
3. The metal of the screws or the internals of the barrel too soft. I even tried filing the inside of clip on the part where the clip touches the barrel so that screws might 'bite' more into the barrel. This did not work. A picture of this can be seen via dropbox link below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yxhwjca9amvoawl/2016-07-21%20Grafton.jpg… As stated before, the quality of the clip and screws are not commensurate with the rest of the pen. Previously, the Grafton has been my constant companion and I have found it a more than able ally especially with a silicone grip from a disposable pen attached. Creators, any ideas for a solution?

Just wanted to relay my recent experience with the Grafton. I loved it, it worked beautifully--but after a week or two, the nose piece came detached, and would sometimes pop off when I clicked the button. I contacted Everyman, and they immediately sent me a replacement, which arrived today and is working like a charm. Thanks very much !

Well today was the day my pen was lost. Whether stolen or lost I know not, but it's gone.

Hallo, I enjoy the Grafton EDC Pen, it feels very very good in my hand, I like it to write every day with it (eg. in my job). But unfortunately: The front part loosened and went off completely!
How can this be fixed? Best regards,

Review from Kickstarter
Unfortunately I dropped my pen once while at work. The pen exploded into pieces and I think whatever holds the clicky in place was lost? Without potentially breaking the other pen I bought, I'm unable to see what is inside holding the clicky on. Any advice/ feedback on this issue please?

Review from Kickstarter
Has anyone had any issues w/ the screws on the clip. Its a well weighted pen but from the day I got it, the two small screws would get loose. I've now lost one and the clip consequently pivots making it ultimately futile sans keeping it from rolling. Just curious if this has happened to others and if there are any remedies. . . otherwise the pen is weighted well, has a great finish, and writes very well!

Review from Kickstarter
The spring doesn't match up with g2 refills like you say it does. My g2 refills have a fatter base that requires a shorter spring that's in the grafton. Am I buying the wrong g2 refills?

Review from Kickstarter
Just receive my two Graftons and am very happy with the smooth clickiness of them. Nicely balanced and good writing weight, I'm very much looking forward to making this a part of my edc rotation. As noted this is not a writing instrument of the mini or micro kind. The Grafton is precise, durable and handsome, and serves as a hardy and elegant go anywhere everyday writing instrument. Great job.

Review from Kickstarter
The first pen kept getting stuck with g2 refills. The second one worked, but it's clicker broke of after rolling off a table on to the floor. This is not an EDC pen. This is not a quality pen. This is a waste of money.

Review from Kickstarter
Had an issue with USPS losing the original shipment, but I was taken care of pretty quickly by Everyman! Got the pen in last week. This is a really awesome pen and it has now replaced my ~8 year old modified Zebra F-701 as my EDC. Great job guys!
