Pen + notebook + leather cover = your edc pocket assistant

PenHeroSens pens with notebooks 2017


How many times you've had a brilliant idea being born in your mind, but there was no paper and a pen at hand to write it down? And by the time you'd found your phone, opened the right application, or ran to the computer, the idea had evaporated as quickly as it appeared. Let's agree that it is vexing – after all, each unrecorded idea is another missed opportunity. I partially solved this problem for myself by inventing the minimalistic Sens pen and successfully implementing its kickstarter campaign.

But now its time for Sens to get a much needed pair - because record your ideas, there must be some paper next to the pen. I considered countless notebooks in search for the right option, but in all that diversity I couldn't find the one to match my criteria – I wanted it to be compact, practical and at the same time to please the eye. After some long fruitless searches, I realized that the best solution would be to create the one on my own.

That's how a unique set was born – combining a conveniently sized notepad with quality paper, a stylish pen, and a hand-sewn leather cover, which, in addition to the notebook and pen cover space, has a compartment for cards and other small things. Not only this set is handy but also is infinitely pleasant to use. Now you can also have an ideal everyday assistant without a single chance to miss that one-in-a-million idea.


All of my successfull projects began their life as sketches and notes in a notebook, and my experience can only prove the fact that people who write down their ideas and put effort in planning and organizing are far more often to reach their goals.

A lot of people switched to using their mobile apps for these tasks lately, thinking of them as of an easier solution. But is it really easy to focus while doing all your planning on your phone or tablet? The oversaturation of options and functions, constant reminders and signals, are a sure way to distract rather than help you concentrate.

The notebook has only one function and it does it well. There is also no battery to die and leave all of your ideas unrecorded. Not even mentioning the magic that happens when the pen touches the paper... It took a lot of effort to create a notebook that we would happily use ourselves. A handy notebook that is suitable for a variety of uses – from business meetings to quick street sketches.

We created this notebook with careful attention to every detail. We meticulously tested different types of paper, picking the one to stop ink from showing up on the other side of the page so you can write on the both sides. We made it 32 pages with rounded corners so it is still compact and not not too thick while having all the necessary space.

Besides that, we made the pages blank so only you can decide how they'll look. We gave the cover a marble look, because we think it is the embodiment of reliability and natural fineness. Lastly, the notebooks come in 3 different colors so you change them depending on your needs and likings.

The pen - was reinvented. It is so simple, that it only consists of two parts. A subtle teardrop shape, gives it a great balance to write with comfort and steadiness. The pen is made from aluminum, known for its durability and lightness. Precision machinery and skillful workers needed to shape its flowing curves.

We’ve designed a remarkable rotational mechanism, where one smooth twist, is all that’s required to begin writing. You’ll love it.

The cover is also a stylish accessory that's hard to let off your hands, moreover to forget at home.

The cover is made from natural vegetable tanned leather to give it strength and a nice texture. It also develops a rich tint as time goes on. The sewing patterns are made with a laser cutter for unparalleled precision and accuracy that are impossible to get while cutting by hand.

But sewing is only done by hands – it is far more difficult, but the stitches come out stronger and last longer. As a final step, we carefully treat the edges of the leather to give the cover its finished look and provide you with a product that is ideal in every detail.
