As an artist, Jac Zagoory revels in the rare and unique, creating desktop accessories with a new dimension of form and grace. Educated in jewelry design and fabrication at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Zagoory found early inspiration as a metal sculptor applying essential elements of design to his creations. After spending a year in the Far East and Europe, he began his "cylindrical obsession" with pens.

Realizing the growing need for desk accessories that not only created order but also highlighted the individual, the artist began designing an extensive assortment of desk accessories that exist as art in and of themselves. With his vision, the office, the home and the desk have become places where great beauty melds with function.

Was going to give this to my boyfriend's father, who's quite handy, but I ended up getting him something a bit higher quality. The packaging looks very cheap. Very disappointed. Wish I could return it.

    Husband Didn't Use

    from CT

    Pros

    • Cool design

    Cons

    • Doesn't Write On Brick

    Best Uses

      Comments about UncommonGoods Contractor Pen:

      My husband was very excited about it however when he went to use it he found that it was difficult to write on wood let alone any non-standard surface. He is a professional carpenter so I was hoping he'd be able to use it every day. He tried it a few times and, since it didn't work to his satisfaction, it's been sitting in one of our office drawers for 4 months. A great concept, just didn't work out for us.

          By 

          from Westchester, NY

          Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Comments about UncommonGoods Contractor Pen:

              The pen works as advertised; it wrote on every surface I tried. I was a little worried it might fall out of its holster when not in use, but it is well designed and holds securely with the pen facing in or out.

              The first one I received was missing the magnetic strip piece, but uncommongoods customer service replaced it with a good one (see below).

              Service and delivery comments:

              I bought this pen for my father's birthday and it was delivered in less than 2 business days.

              However, when we opened it we found the magnetic strip that is supposed embedded in the bottom of the item was missing. I contacted uncommongoods via email and included a picture of the pen sans magnetic strip; they responded in about an hour and shipped a replacement immediately. The replacement also arrived in less than 2 business days.

              Service doesn't get any better, and I'll certainly be shopping here again because of that.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Contractor Pen:

                My husband the contractor was always loosing those silly contractor pencils and when he did find one he needed to sharpen it with a knife, which was never around, this thing is great no sharpening needed and all the guys on the job wanted to see if it wrote on everything so they took turns finding metal, plastic, wood and dry wall to try out the pen and the level. We used it last weekend to hang new house numbers and the pen marked the holes to drill on brick! Then We used the level to make sure the numbers were straight. It worked great! Fun tool and very helpful
