New Mini-Click Pen and Mechanism KS Project launched!

1 like

I'm pleased to announce the launch of our new Mini-Click Kickstarter project. It's a new, smaller, lighter clicky pen with a 416SS advancing mechanism made just for us (yes, this is a big deal).

At the moment virtually every high-end or custom press pen uses an off-the-shelf mechanism. Well, we didn't just make a new pen (which by itself, is pretty cool), we actually made a new 416 stainless steel, precision machined mechanism to go along with it. It's a cam-action swiss-machined out of stainless steel, with a chrome steel bearing and milled race that's made in the good old USA. This might just be the finest press button pen mechanism made so far.

We've been working on this new design for over 6 months and hope you are as excited about it as we are.


Ti Bolt Pencil from Fellhoelter

My buddy Brian Fellhoelter has launched a project on Kickstarter for a new bolt-action automatic pencil. He's a good guy, a pretty decent designer and a great machinist. I've actually done a little solid modeling for him before so I know how well designed his gear is. If you're in the market for an awesome mechanical pencil (and can't wait for ours to come out) then you should really take a look at his project:


Ti Project is LIVE!

Good news; The Ultimate Titanium Clicky Pen project is finally live!

It's true, this took a little longer than we anticipated but as always we wanted to get everything just right (seriously, who would think that a guy who does precision manufactured pens is a little O.C.D right?).

A big thanks to Mike at Stay Safe Media who did a great job filming and editing our video and even made me look a bit taller on camera (we paid extra for that CGI).

So now here's the big question... we have a handful of amazing pre-production prototypes pens that were hand machined out of 6AL4V Grade 5 Ti and hand finished. Normally we don't release prototypes but anybody think we should make these as premium rewards and have them available to send out immediately at project close?

Ti Project Update Deux...

So here's the scoop. The video has been shot and is now being edited by Stay Safe Media. As soon as it's ready and we have a final cut the project will launch. Since our budget for CGI and celebrity cameos is pretty much nil, this shouldn't be too long (how long does it take to edit a 3 minute video anyway?).

Current rewards as we have them planned are:

  • Polished (hand polished, shinny)
  • Brushed (hand brushed finish, time consuming but wonderful)
  • Tumbled (standard ceramic media tumble, looks cool)
  • Blasted (smooth, satin finish)

We've also been experimenting with some more exotic finishes and will consider making them available as long as it doesn't affect the project delivery timeline (does anyone really need a cryogenically treated pen with a compressive surface finish? probably not).

Ti Project Update...

Ok, so here's the deal. We have filming for the Titanium Ultimate Clicky Pen project video scheduled for April 6th. That's right, out friend Mike Rigg from Stay Safe Media is coming out to film the video (I tried to book Michael Bay but he wouldn't return my phone calls). Figure another few days for editing and we should have the project launched by the second week in April.

Project launch checklist:

  • Video filming - scheduled
  • Tooling quotes - done
  • Material quotes - done
  • Functioning prototypes - completed
  • Sharks with lazers - on backorder

Am I forgetting anything?
