TiScribe-Bolt™: Ultimate Titanium Bolt-Action Fidget Pen

$95,120

THE PROBLEM: The majority of bolt-action pens use a single-point bolt button (usually a screw). The bolt button unthreads after repeated use, thus forcing the customer to constantly re-tighten.      

THE SOLUTION: The TiScribe-Bolt integrates the clip, bolt button, and bolt carrier into one unit. The entire assembly is held together using a three-point system. This means the bolt button will never loosen. Furthermore, the clip/bolt and spring create a delightfully addicting fidget toy. Each swipe of the bolt feels just as good as the last one.

Addicting Fidget Toy!

ABOUT THE PEN: The TiScribe-Bolt is a 100% CNC machined pen made from titanium, copper, or brass. Hundreds of pens were reviewed when designing the TiScribe-Bolt. Most were huge and heavy, so it was designed to be light and sleek. Most were aluminum, so we went with exotic materials. All non-essential components were removed, resulting in a ultra-minimalist/ultra-portable design.  

Below are some additional design challenges and how they were solved:

  • Titanium Pocket Clip & Bolt Carrier: Standard (CNC Machined from Grade 5 Titanium)
  • All Parts Machined with Tight Tolerances (Bolt/Clip WILL NOT Scratch the Pen)
  • Stainless Steel Spring: Standard (Resists Corrosion & has Fantastic Strength Properties) 
  • Only 0.375in Diameter (Designed to be Super Light & Comfortable in Hand or Pocket)

All of my kickstarter's are machined in-house at Urban Survival Gear HQ. The main difference with this project is that the mill and lathe have been upgraded, namely Robodrill Mill and GT-2750 Lathe. These machines have increased speed and quality by +300%

Risks and challenges

We've produced over 2000 TiScribe's so far. The TiScribe-Bolt is a derivative of the TiScribe series, therefore the machine code is virtually identical. My last Kickstarter (TiScribe-HL) was a TiScribe variant also and that project shipped in five weeks.

Will the TiScribe-Bolt really take until June 2017 to ship? This is the "Zombie Apocalypse" date. At USG we don't stop cranking until the project is done!
