About

The Hi-Tec-C deserves a killer housing which promotes the iconic abilities of the cartridge with a housing that compliments the sleek elegance, enter stage right, the Venturi 1.

As seen on PenAddict.com

The Venturi 1 is hand machined from solid 304 Stainless Steel making it look and feel epic. We are also offering the same housing made from 925 Sterling Silver or 9ct Yellow Gold.

The Venturi 1's simplified design and materials make for a pen which can last a lifetime, the materials used will enable this pen to perform as well now as it will in 100 years time. Simply change out the Hi-Tec-C cartridge for a fresh one every now and then for a brand new writing experience.

 The Venturi 1 has an optional base, cast from concrete and polished to a dull shine, it compliments the marginally industrial look of the pen. The base turns the pair into a modern sculpture that reflects pens of old, standing upright in their ink wells.

 Stretch Goals will include polished stainless steel, additional refills, his & her combinations, caps & clips etc.....

Risks and challenges

The process of manufacturing is an established art form facilitated not by us, it will be by a machine shop in London. They have advised us that producing the pen will be a in addition to the work they already have on their books. Because of this they are looking to bring on another member of staff so they can meet the requirement of the Venturi One volume.
We are determined to have these out in the hands of our backers before Christmas so we will keep the machine shop upto date with the progress so they can order materials and employ staff before the end of this Kickstarter campaign.

We would also like to highlight that some of the team have also been working on another Kickstarter campaign called coffee Cuppa, this will not affect the delivery of the Venturi One pen's because the manufacture and fulfilment process is separate.
