As comfortable as the original Nomad Pen is to use, the Nomad Pen in Titanium is even better. That’s thanks to the lower weight (25g vs 32g) that is made possible by the use of titanium. If you like the aluminum and steel version, you are going to love this new titanium release!
- Unique look
- Easily replaced ink cartridge
- As long as you don’t lose it, the pen will likely last forever
- Still no pocket clip
- It’s pricey
Last February, I reviewed Nomad’s foray into the analog space with its Nomad Pen. It’s a beautiful, well-balanced pen that is 134.5mm long. 9.8mm thick, weighs 32g, and is made from high-quality aluminum and stainless steel. At $49.95, it is an affordable piece of daily-use luxury. Now Nomad has upped their game and introduced the Nomad Pen in Titanium.
Made from machined titanium, the pen has a PVD coating for abrasion and corrosion resistance.
The Nomad Pen in Titanium’s design is exactly the same as that of the stainless steel version, and like its predecessor, the flattened sides aren’t just for visual interest. Instead, they also make it comfortable to hold when using the pen.
The careful weight distribution also adds to the comfort when writing for an extended period of time. I used the stainless steel version for months and found it a comfortable pen to hold and use.

One customer review on the stainless steel version raves, “Just like every other product I’ve bought from Nomad in the past, this pen did not disappoint. I agree that it is a fantastic pen.
I find myself only using the Nomad Pen in Titanium anymore; in fact, it’s replaced all my other pens! Like the original version, the titanium pen doesn’t have a pocket clip; that’s still a bummer, but I’ve managed not to misplace the original pen, so I guess it’s not as big a deal as I expected it to be.
Of course, using a material like titanium instead of aluminum and stainless steel impacts the price; the original version of the Nomad Pen is $49.99, and the new Nomad Pen in Titanium is double that price. That may seem like a lot, but then again, so long as you don’t lose it (or your spouse doesn’t steal it from you), this is likely the last pen you will ever purchase.
The Nomad Pen in Titanium sells for $99.95; it is available directly from the manufacturer.
