TIPEN: Redefining EDC Pen.

£75,362

Take less, do more.  A lot of people within the EDC community have a fascination with tiny things -- myself included. There's something incredibly pleasing about carrying and using a tool that's small, lightweight and can still get the job done. We wanted a pen is much more than just a ultra-portable mini writing instrument. It is a super tough, must have in your EDC and backcountry kit. 

A Pen That Completely Changes The Rules. YSMART TIPEN is the world’s smallest and lightest pen. It’s as small as a key and is even lighter. But don’t think that it’s fragile. It’s waterproof, fireproof and tough as nails. Its tungsten carbide tip can even be used to slice and puncture. 

Minimal Appearance, Maximum Functionality. The most striking quality of the TIPEN is its size. At 50mm long and weighing only 4.3 grams, the pen stays true to its name. Combined with its lanyard-compatible keyring attachment point, the TIPEN offers so many ways to carry it so you'll never be without a pen. 

The most obvious way to go is on your keys, but you can also wear it on a necklace, use it as a zipper pull for a jacket or bag, or even carry it loose in your coin pocket or travel wallet.  

YSMART TIPEN is small enough to carry wherever you go.

Aside from making notes, the Tungsten Carbide ballpoint tip also works for opening packages in a pinch and even doubles as an emergency impact tool should the dire need ever arise

Now For the Nitty-gritty

Wow, you've really made your way down the page. Maybe that's because you're looking for more details. Well, lucky for you we didn't spare a single one.

Risks and challenges

There are always challenges and unforeseen obstacles that arise when trying to bring a product to life. Fortunately, we learned a lot from our first campaign which fulfilled 8000+ units to 2000+ backers successfully.

During the production process, we expect to make minor changes to optimize the design for mass production.

We will be using a professional fulfilment company to handle the logistics of shipping, in order to ensure that the side of the operation is well covered.

If any issues arise, we'll contact you as timely and openly as possible.
