About this project
CHECK UPDATE # 1 FOR PEN CLIP AND MECHANICAL PENCIL.
Pen works with our cartridge and Pilot Coletos Cartridge. (D1 CARTRIDGE PENDING)
The first of its kind Triumvir an all alloy Tri - Color Pen
How it came about
Working with a 3 color click pen has its advantages. The main one being that it allows you to seamlessly switch between the selectable colors for fluid transitions. From taking notes to sketching to proofreading, it is a breeze to change from one color to another, without having to put your current writing instrument down.
That is where the idea for Triumvir came about. The Triumvir was designed to not just be functional, but also perfect to hold in the hand and beautiful to look at.
When one of the pen colors is pressed the depressed region will lead way to a “cutaway” color selected.
The Included ink Cartridge will be RED, BLACK AND BLUE.
The Triumvir was designed to be balance in your hand with a feeling that you’re holding something truly special.
A minimalistic design with unlimited potential to create greatness.
Triumvir as constructed does not only look incredibly beautiful but acts as an extension of the artist inside all of us. Everyone dreams of being part of innovative during their lifetime, so we're here asking you to join just that.
During the design process one of our requirement was to have the button be on top like any other standard pens, so we had to design our own custom three cartridge pen mechanism.
One of the main requirement for the Triumvir is that it has to have a good balance between weight and holding comfort. We perfectly balance the Triumvir by making the inner wall as thin as possible while retaining the materials rigidity and its weight.
The Triumvir will be offered in three amazing material:
7075 Aluminium, a much stronger and more durable option to the standard 6061 that most manufacturers use to save money.
Stainless Steel, providing even greater strength and a distinctive finish
Titanium, for those who crave the absolute best. Combines the best features of the previous two, strong as steel light as aluminum. Providing a one of a kind construction.
Ink Cartridge, our ink cartridge is manufactured to our spec as current ink cartridge on the market will not fit due to the way our Tri Clamp holds the cartridge.
Regardless of what you choose, the result will still be the same. You will receive not just a writing instrument, but a contemporary piece of art.
The pen is currently constructed of 14 different individual pieces that we will hand assemble.
The Triumvir will be offered in two amazing finish that we have selected:
Polish: All non Anodize parts will be hand polish to perfection. Using a polishing disk and 3 level of compound to bring out the shine that only something that is made with love can look.
Aluminum Oxide blast: All non Anodize parts will be hand aluminum oxide blasted to give it a durable matte look.
Made right here in the USA
90 percent of this pen will be manufactured and hand assembled by us. The only part that is being sourced are the ink Cartridge and one of the internal piece which can not be milled or edm.
At the conclusion of a successful campaign we will:
Put in the order for the packaging and ink Cartridge
Start manufacturing of the pen, as we manufacturing 90 percent of the pen our self we can control the quality and speed of production.
Quality control and testing to ensure functionality.
Final inspections and prep the Triumvir for shipping.
End on January or beginning of February.
Packing and shipping of the first orders of Triumvir. YAY!
Why we are on Kickstarter?
Although we manufacture most our things in house some components needs to be source, and the material needs to be purchase. We are here asking for your help into making our project a reality and to spread some beautiful design around the world.
Risks and challenges
As of current we have one working prototype that we hand lathe and assembled. One of the major thing we will be doing while the campaign is redesign some of the internal mechanics to speed up the assembly prototype, as our prototype took us about 30 minute just to assemble the one unit. The second thing we will be doing is sourcing ink cartridge manufacture to manufacture to our specs.
As with any project there are some risks involved when undertaking an order that may or may not meet the criterion that was predetermined. We are fully aware of this and are working hard to ensure that whatever situation arises, we will be adequately prepare to handle it. Manufacturing will be done in house in order to implement strict quality standards from the get go. There will also be the possibility of delays that will be out of our control, however we will do our best to make sure these problems are kept to a minimum.
