Inspired by rockets, the Rocket Pen + Launch Pad is a sleek click pen that is machined from solid alloy aluminum for a one-piece pen body. No screw-on tip!
The Rocket Pen is designed to be:
- Parker Compatible
Write in Zero Gravity!
The Rocket Pen ships with the Fisher Space Pen refill (of course), so you can write in space or any terrestrial angle.
With several successful Kickstarter projects under my belt, a click pen continues to be one of the most requested pen designs.
The Rocket Pen has an "Anti-Gravity" feature, a flat edge on the pen body to prevent the pen from rolling!
The flat edge also makes a great finger grip while writing!

Risks and challenges
I have successfully delivered several other Kickstarter pen projects, including:
The 'Rocket Pen' will be made in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which eliminates the issue of dealing with out of state machine shops and shipping logistics.
Production costs and allowances have already been established.
My machinists experience and successful delivery of other Kickstarter projects, gives me great insight to production considerations, e.g. how to design the 'Rocket Pen' and time effective production and delivery.
The material used for the 'Rocket Pen' have good availability and are not subject to extreme pricing spikes or shortages.
If I need to ramp up production speed or in the unlikely event I get hit by a bus, I have another local machine shop that will assist.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
