Product Description

The Skilcraft B3 Black/Red Aviator Pen was originally designed for military uniforms since the manufacturer received feedback that normal pens were too thick to fit into the small, narrow pockets found on the flight suits and BDUs.

They also found that many people (other than those in uniform) enjoy the heavy, all-metal feel of the pen and the three-in-one functionality! This pen has become one of our “surprise” best sellers!

The B3 Aviator multi-function pen includes black and red medium ball point ink cartridges and a 0.5mm pencil. The screw-top eraser fits tightly on the pencil top meeting all Foreign Object Damage (FOD) requirements. The all metal construction provides added durability. Pen includes a special finish that won't reflect light. Fits securely in a flight suit uniform pocket.


  • Triple Function Pen includes Black & Red, as well as 0.5mm Pencil
  • Secure, screw-top eraser
  • Slim Design- Flight Suit & Uniform Pocket Compatible
  • Non-Reflective Finish
  • Sturdy All Metal Construction with 3600 twist action
  • Precision Balanced
  • Specifically Designed for the Armed Forces
  • Includes 2 replacement ink cartridges – one Black, one Red

Perfect pilot pen! Review by Andrew
As a military pilot, this pen is perfect for the paperwork that I fill out on a daily basis. It is a great design for inside and outside the jet. (Posted on 2/19/15)
Very happy so far. Review by Simon
After a slightly heart stopping moment where I nearly lost it on the first day, I've been very happy with this pen. Certainly comes in handy having 3-in-1 in your pocket. (Posted on 2/18/15)
Best Pen I Have!! Review by Juan
I got two of this pens when I was deployed in Kandahar Afghanistan. I am Avionics Mechanic and i used this pen everyday. It always fitted in my flight suit pockets and always good to have the RED Black and pencil combination in one. Now everything as far as records have changed to computers, but back when everything was done on paper, The forms required some things written in red some in black ink and some in pencil. No kidding, that was the requirement and this pen was made perfect for aviators and Techs..
After all these years I still have the very first pen i had and still use it at work. Now my coworkers know what i say "don't mess with my pen".

Best pen for flying and the office! Review by Fidel
This is the best pen I've used and it beats having to carry multiple pens/pencils around. Trying to find them in bulk for gifts over the holidays! (Posted on 10/29/14)
Great pen Review by Scar
Fits perfect in my flight suit sleeve & writes nicely. (Posted on 10/22/14)
Great product, excellent service, expensive shipping. Review by Tony
I've been using these pens for a couple of years and find them useful. Marv Golden provides excellent service, but shipping to Switzerland is expensive. (Posted on 10/9/14)
Great Pen Review by gmwallace
This is the best pen for the Army. Slim enough to fit int sleeve pocket. As a PBO, I like having black ink to sign documents, red ink to make corrections standout, and I replaced the black lead with red lead for posting changes. The only downfall is that the mechanical pencil has quit working on all my pens. I can get replacement ink in both red and black, but I wish I could get a replacement end for the pencil. Oh well, I am getting ready to open up a new one. Oh, since this has an NSN, it makes it easier for your GPC holder to get these through the system for you. (Posted on 10/5/14)
Forgot to add something Review by Hurticus
Don't wash this pen though, the ink cartridges are not sealed on the end, so they leak pretty badly if washed, and will gum up the pen, but if that happens, soak all the inked up parts in rubbing alcohol and it will remove the ink. (Posted on 7/17/14)
Awesome Pen/cil Review by Hurticus
Love this pen/cil. Found one in my old desk at Moody AFB, used it and loved it. Lost it unfortunately, but just had to have another. Good quality, writes well, handy as can be with the black/red/led. A must for military use! Works well for mx writing up or clearing symbols in forms as well as aircrew on mission. I highly recommend. (Posted on 7/17/14)
outstanding product Review by Ricciardo
durable, well designed, reasonably priced... what more could you ask for in a pen. (Posted on 7/10/14)
Amazing! Review by Justin
As an active duty Marine, this pen is Amazing! Very reliable and the three different functions always come in handy! Thank you for having it in stock. (Posted on 7/9/14)
Excellent Pen at an excellent price Review by Pilot46
I like multi-function pens/pencils, and this one is excellent. It will easily fit in the pen loop on my kneeboard strap. Marv Golden has the best price on this that I found on the internet. (Posted on 3/22/14)
Awesome pen! Review by Zach
I received this pen from a relative for Christmas 2 years ago and it served me well until I lost it last month. Bought it again--be warned, people WILL try to take it. I've started to carry around two pens: this one for my personal use and the other one to loan out to people. Makes a great gift! (Posted on 3/22/14)
All you need! Review by Weapons
Outstanding pen for flightline guys! Always on the move in need of a red/black pen and pencil. The B3 Aviator covers it all without taking up 3 pen slots. The clip is durable and holds securely so you don't have to worry about it falling out when in the mix. If you don't have one yet, get one! (Posted on 3/11/14)
Excellent service and product Review by Mark
Excellent service and product (Posted on 3/4/14)
Great pen- so slim for having 2 coloured inks plus a pencil in there- great design! Review by Kell All my reviews  (1)
Great pen- so slim for having 2 coloured inks plus a pencil in there- great design!
I had a Lamy pen/pencil for many years but I unfortunately lost it and as they don't make the model any more I could not find any other multi pens that were not too big and fat- until now of course. It feels solid and well made. Very happy with finding this pen on-line.

excellent Review by test
awesome pen. Would recommend it to anyone. (Posted on 1/27/14)
great pen for doing forms. Review by weapons loader
Its a great pen for doing forms, but where can one get replacement ink cartridges? I have used the replacements that came with the pen.
Webmaster's Note: Replacement Cartridges are available in "Related Products" to the right when you're on the product page.

Best pen for my Army uniform! Review by BamBam
This is one bad ass pen, if they were a little cheaper I'd buy one for all my soldiers. (Posted on 12/17/12)
My Favorite Pen! Review by Ben
This is the greatest pen I've ever used. It's thin enough to fit in my pocket, but still has the heavier metal feel a pen should have. It writes in black and red and in pencil. Since I bought one I never use another pen and I keep one on me at all times!! (Posted on 6/27/12)
EXTREMELY VALUABLE Review by c-130 crew chief
I was blessed to find one of these pens on the aircraft. Its the longest I have ever held on to a pen (almost 4 months) I lost it today because I let somebody borrow it... HE LEFT IT ON A DESK IN PLAIN SIGHT AND IT WAS SWIPED!!! I went around and asked everyone but I no one "SAID" they had it. I'm so disappointed...He better buy me a new one before this deployment is up. (Posted on 5/2/12)
Best pen ever used Review by Brian
I retired from the Air Force 2 years ago after 22 years of service, 17 of which were spent in flying positions. My original B3 pen is now dented and worn from years of use, and it is time to order. Although I no longer wear a flight suit (they are ideally suited for flight suits and BDUs), I've chosen to order B3s for my company because they present a professional image, have superb balance and weight, and are incredibly versatile (pencil, black, and red ink). They have the feel of a much more expensive pen.

Thank you for offering the B3! I was afraid I would not be able to find any now that I am in the civilian world.

A Maintainer's Best Friend Review by MartyrComplx
As an aircraft maintainer in the US Air Force, I have a daily -- if not near-constant -- need for a black pen, red pen, and a pencil. I was fortunate enough to be issued one of these pens while deployed. It became a treasured piece of equipment, and was constantly in danger of being permanently borrowed, if you know what I mean.

The metal did end up showing scratches, but despite numerous drops, crunches, and other forms of unintentional abuse, it still kept working. In the time I owned it, I did not have any problems with the clip coming off. And the screw on eraser cap meant that it wouldn't come loose and lost on accident.

Highly recommend for anyone in or out of service, for its durability and multi-use design.
