Dimond (Dy-mond) Point is based on the passion for finely crafted awesomeness and the testosterone boosting power of manly gear. The unique name of Dimond is derived from a deep heritage of Swiss quality and craftsmanship. The Patriot Pen looks to carry on this passion for precision right here in the good ole' US of A.

Featured On

We are so thankful for all the support we have received, so to show our gratitude for your complete awesomeness we are unlocking a new opportunity...Laser Etching for your pen! You can choose to have this on the right or left side of the pen, and you can have up to three words (incase your name is Chuck Norris VanDamme). We are working on finding the coolest font that will look the best on the pen. 

So how do you add laser etching to your Patriot Pen? Simply add $5 to your pledge and at the end of the funding period we will get all the details from you.

Every man needs gear that not only works well, but also testifies of his complete studliness. Backing this project will show your heightened sense of style and quality, and will ensure that every onlooker will know you are a man with real mettle.

The Patriot Pen is a lightweight, unique pen that doesn’t just write well—It looks killer doing it, which makes it perfect for every day carry. The Patriot Pen is machined from high-quality military grade 6063 aluminum. It's anodized black or silver (add $2 for silver), achieving a rugged Type III hardness, and is sure to handle the abuse of even the toughest pen writer.

The Patriot Pen grip comes in two finishes. For the rugged manly man we offer a knurled finish for an extra grip-tight hold. If you are a stealthy special ops type of guy you have the smooth finish which is ideal for prolonged writing situations. Either way you will find yourself knee deep in pure manliness.

Quick Facts

  • The pen refill is the popular Pilot® Dr. Grip refill. Available at nearly any local pen store, this refill is easy on the wallet and comes in a variety of colors and tip sizes. We are offering it in Black and Blue inks with a .7mm writing tip. 
  • The Patriot Pen's pocket clip is powder coated spring steel.
  • The two clip screws are coated with Loctite® for a hassle free long life.
  • The pen itself is three pieces: the cap, the grip and the body. Each piece is a precision-machined hunk of metal that is a beauty to behold.
  • The inspiration: the most unique feature that sets the Patriot Pen apart from other writing utensils is the “muzzle brake” styled tip.
  • Multi-lead threads allow for quick on and off of the pen cap while maintaining holding strength.

Risks and challenges

We are lucky in the sense that we already have our pen prototypes developed. We have several pens created, which you see in the videos on our project, so we do not anticipate many setbacks in the development area. Additionally, we are working with a highly skilled machinist who produces only the finest quality products.

We want you to know that being honest and keeping funders in the loop is a top priority for us. Any challenges we face will be effectively communicated with our backers and dealt with in a professional manner.

As we get the word out, we know this project can be successful! Please share The Patriot Pen on blogs, with social media friends and any other outlets available to you. Thank you for your support.
