About this project
The ultimate bolt-action pen is back as a pencil! Missed out on the original TiScribe-Bolt (TS-Bolt) campaign? No problem! Pledge any TiScribe-Pencil (TS-Pencil) and get the second Pencil or TiScribe-Bolt at the early bird price.
TiScribe-Pencil is a 100% CNC machined pen made from titanium, copper, or brass. It 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.
Features & Project Updates:
- GET THE SECOND PENCIL OR PEN AT THE EARLY BIRD PRICE (See Rewards)
- 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)
- Only 0.375in Diameter (Designed to be Super Light & Comfortable in Hand or Pocket)
- Pen & Pencil are Dimensionally Identical (Makes the Perfect Set)
- TiScribe-Pencil and TiScribe-Bolt Available in Stonewashed Only
Increased Clip Chamfer
The pocket clip chamfer has been increased to 0.015" due to backer feedback. This feature adds comfort to those 2 hour long fidget sessions.
Laser Engraved Logo
The USG Logo is laser engraved on every titanium pocket clip. Logo will no longer be engraved on the pen/pencil cap. Upgrade kits are available that will replace the legacy TiScribe-Bolt components (see rewards).

* TiScribe-Pencil & TiScribe-Bolt are available in stonewashed only
Unfortunately, the pen and pencil tip kits are not interchangeable, therefore separate tip kits must be pledged for each.
Tip kits are available in titanium, copper and brass. Available finishes are polished and stonewashed. Choose finish at project end. Additional materials may be available as the project progresses.
TiScribe-Pencil Tip Kits
TiScribe-Bolt Tip Kits
The TiScribe-Pencil comes preloaded with the Schmidt DSM 2006 pencil mechanism. Backers will choose their lead sizes via BackerKit at project end. Available sizes shown below:
The Schmidt 2006 was chosen for its flawless functionality and adherence to TIGHT TOLERANCES.
To reload, simply unthread the tip and remove the rear portion of the mechanism.
The TS-Bolt upgrade kit consists of a laser engraved pocket clip and plain endcap. These components make the TS-Pencil and legacy TS-Bolt a perfect matching set.
The TiScribe series has 3000+ backers to date. New backers sometimes ask for "real-time", user generated, photos for evaluation. Below are "real-time" photos showing the TiScribe-Bolt and TiScribe-Pencil in action. More photos will be added as the project progresses.
All of my Kickstarter's are machined in-house at Urban Survival Gear HQ. The main difference with this project is that we bought ANOTHER lathe! The GSK-27 expands our capabilities threefold. Now we can produce your pledges in half the time.
Weekly project updates will be provided on Kickstarter. Near daily production updates will be added on our Instagram (link above)

Risks and challenges
We've produced over 5000 TiScribe's so far. The TiScribe-Pencil is a derivative of the TiScribe-Bolt, therefore the machine code is identical. Producing more TS-Bolts & TS-Pencils is really plug-and-play at this point.
Will the TiScribe-Pencils really take until December 2017 to ship? Probably not due to the reusable tooling. We've also expanded our capabilities by adding another CNC lathe to the shop. The new lathe cuts production time is cut in HALF. At USG we don't stop cranking until the project is done!
Suppliers have been notified about this project and are awaiting our orders. We're confident that your pledge will get to you on-time or EARLY.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
