About Unsharpen

Unsharpen.com is a website about pens, pencils, paper, and all manner of related things. The site has reviews of all sorts of stationery good as well as a database of information about pens, pencils, paper, and accessories.

Unsharpen.com was launched in February 2019 and is based in New York, in the United States.

Why “Unsharpen”?

As luck would have it, “Unsharpen.com” was a domain name in our (admittedly small) portfolio for years. It seems sort of related to writing and pens and literally has the word “pen” in it, so it seemed like a fit. It doesn’t mean anything past that, it’s just a cool (ish) fun word.

Why Read Unsharpen?

There is a lot of great information about pens, but almost all of it comes from manufacturers and resellers. Unsharpen.com is an independent source of information with access to a portfolio of many pens and pencils, a library of review videos, thousands of hours of hands-on testing time, and more paper than anyone would be comfortable admitting.
