Hello Kickstarter!!! 

We are Raymond and Michael. We are friends who love to design cool stuff, so we are always writing, sketching, and drawing plans. Which is why It became very necessary for Us to have a pen that is much more minimal, durable and comfortable of Our day to day operations. So We created a pen that is comfortable and will last forever!

The Process

Its called the MD-Pen. Minimal, durable and comfortable is the idea behind this pen. We spent several months working with our CAD Engineer to design the minimal, durable and comfortable pen which is able to accommodate many types of refills / cartridges.

With the 3D CAD data and 2D Technical drawings from our CAD Engineer we proceeded to the CNC machining process to make our prototype.

We wanted the pen to be comfortable in any ones hand so we spent a lot of time refining and adjusting the prototype, as well as trying different kinds of materials (brass, aluminum, cooper, stainless steel and steel) and then finally We got a prototype that met our requirements. A minimal, durable and comfortable pen, made out of 6061 Aluminum. The MD-pen is very durable, lightweight, and is engineered to be comfortable in just about any ones hand.

Support Many Refills / Cartridges

The MD-Pen is very unique. It has an internal small screw (two ways set-screw) which makes this pen compatible with many pens refills / cartridges even though the cartridges have different lengths.  Our Pen is compatible (tested) with refills / cartridges below :

  • Pilot Hi-Tec C (all size)
  • Pilot G2 (all size)
  • Pilot Q7 Refill (BL-Q7-MR-B)
  • Pilot Frixion  Ball
  • Mont Blanc Fineliner
  • Mont Blanc Rollerball
  • Cross Gel Rolling Ball 
  • Uni-Ball Signo (UMN 207 Micro)
  • Uni-Ball Signo (UMN 152.105)
  • Uni-Ball Jetstream (SX-217)
  • Zebra Gel Cartridge (RJF5-BK)

We are also still exploring the possibility of using other types of refill cartridges to our pen, please feel free to give us any suggestions about the pen refill you like to use, and we will consider it with our pen.
