What Makes the TiScribe Different?

TiScribe is a 100% custom machined pen made from high quality TITANIUM, COPPER, or BRASS. I looked at hundreds of pens when designing the TiScribe. Most had ugly seams, so they were removed. Most pens were plastic, so I went with exotic metals. I continued removing all non-essential components resulting in a ultra-minimalist/ultra-portable design. Below are some additional design challenges and how they were solved.

  • Titanium pocket clips standard on all pens (CNC Machined from Grade 5 Titanium)
  • A pocket sized EDC Pen (Only 4.5in long. Won't spear you in the leg when sitting down)
  • Seamless Design (No ugly lines. Feels/looks like a one piece pen)
  • Each pen is finished to a high polish (Who doesn't like bling?)
  • Threaded Cap (Built to last! Pop tops generally wear out)
  • Cap does not post (Threads on the rear looked ugly)

Seamless

Great care was taken to remove all visible seams. The only remaining seam is hidden in the grip section = don't worry, your friends won't see it.

Most pocket clips are stamped, water-jet cut, or designed as an afterthought - this really bothered me. For the TiScribe, I broke the mold and CNC machined the entire clip from solid Grade 5 Titanium. Below is an excerpt from my YouTube channel explaining the pocket clip development.

Project Update Video (Posted Aug 17 2015)

 

I have a confession to make......I'm a YouTuber and an Instagram addict. I produce weekly CNC Machining videos very similar to Discovery Channel's "How It's Made". Weekly progress videos will be posted on my YouTube Channel. These videos will catalog the entire CNC machining process for the TiScribe. Never will you say "Where's my pen?". Furthermore, almost daily progress pictures/videos will be posted on my Instagram.

Risks and challenges

Each Scribe is 100% manufactured in-house at my shop. This is my second kickstarter, so I've done this before. My first kickstarter was completed and mailed 87% ahead of schedule. I can't think of any risks or challenges other than too many backers pledging the project; 1500+. I have already secured an agreement with other Kickstarters to take up the slack if that happens (shout out to TacticalKeychains y'all!). Each step of the manufacturing process will be cataloged weekly on my YouTube Channel. Here are the steps I will go through during fulfillment.

SCRIBE MANUFACTURING PROCESS:
1) Order Material
2) Machine Material
2a) Streamline CNC Code
3) Machine Material
3a) Streamline CNC Code
4) Machine Material (See a Pattern?)
5) Assemble Pens
6) Polish Pens
7) Clean Pens
8) Package Pens
9) Ship to Backers

I start fulfilling rewards the minute the project funds. I’m confident you’ll get your reward(s) on-time or EARLY!
