Designing For A Purpose

We are back after popular demand to create the next version of the Stealth pen. As some of you might know we don't design basic products. We treat our designs like art, pushing the boundaries of what is possible. The Stealth pen project was created out of my own needs to create a pen that could reduce fatigue when I was sketching for long periods of time.      

Aerodynamic Inspired Design

The unique tear drop shape of the pen was inspired by airfoil profile of a wing. It took us over 300 hundred sketches and 20 different physical prototypes to get the perfect shape. 

Unique Ergonomics  

 The wide aerodynamic shape gives the pen a larger surface area than a normal cylindrical writing utensils, the wider surface give your hands a variety of comfortable ways to hold and grip the pen. The slotted designs on the body offers a futuristic touch and cuts down on the weight of the pen while allowing the user a glance at the inside ink cartridge. Each pen body is tumbled, bead blasted, and anodized.   

Pocket Clip 

A challenge for the new version of the Stealth pen was to design a pocket clip that complimented the unique aerodynamic shaped body. We didn't want exposed screws, so we integrated the clip into the click mechanism. The pen clips are tumbled and polished to a mirror like finish.   

Click Mechanism and Tail Section

Next to the click mechanism is the tail section of the pen body, which helps prevent the refill from jamming into the pen opening if accidentally dropped. Click mechanisms are made by Schmidt in Germany. These mechanisms have a silky smooth ball bearing click action.   

Changing Ink Refills

The Stealth Pen V2 has a slotted front cap making it easy to change refills out from the front. All pens come with Schmidt EasyFlow 9000 refills. Stealth pen were designed around the Schmidt parker style G2 refills, below is a list of refills that we have tested and are known to be compatible with the pen:

-          Schmidt EasyFlow 9000, 950, 900

-          Parker Gel

-          Parker Quinkflow

-          Penatia Parker


Material & Dimensions

Each pen body and cap are cnc milled out of 6061-T6 aluminum and also known as aircraft grade aluminum. The pocket clip is made of 303 stainless steel.
