About this project
A high quality USA Made precision machined pen with a unique magnetized cap. It weighs .082lbs and is 5.037" in length (capped). The pen body will fit standard 0.7mm gel ink refills, including the popular Pilot® G2 and others listed below. Body features a cnc machined knurled grip and a custom made screw for swapping refills. Each pen is machined from 300 and 400 series surgical grade stainless steel, right here in Rhode Island.
We were inspired by our success with the industrial themed “wave” cribbage board which we designed based on an idea and the desire to keep manufacturing local. This one idea has now spiraled to others.
“Makers” at heart we decided to try our hand at pen making. We feel the end result is truly unique and expect that you will too.
Each pen is precisely machined using a cnc swiss screw machine, laser weld, and passivated . . And the name? Well a super cool pen deserves a very cool name. E04 derives from the 304 Stainless Steel Metal used in the main body of the pen.

Why do we need pledges?
This is the prototype pen, in order to produce in higher quantities we need to secure funding for:
- Materials – Steel, magnets, and refills
- Labor – Manufacturing
Risks and challenges
Well.. Plenty, but we are committed to making sure that doesn't happen. The biggest hurdle will be demand and lead time. If we run into issues with materials, tooling, or manufacturing that could delay ship times, however given our experience and drive to make this happen – we’ll be all over it.
We are confident that we will be able to begin producing pens in August, with early birds shipping first. Immediately following the successful completion of the Kickstarter campaign, we will begin the first production run of the E04 INDUSTRIAL pen.
