I will be machining three different pens all with a stainless cap.
- Titanium Grade II CP
- Stainless Steel 303
- Aluminum 606
The ink refill will go in the back, and is held in place with a set screw. I will include the ink cartridge and a tool to remove the set screw.
The finish will be lightly hand polished to give a good shine and remove any major blemishes or tool marks.

Risks and challenges
The challenges I have with the compression pen are that none of the production aspect of the project will be subbed out to outside machine shops; at the same time creating the pen entirely in house will eliminate the problems and unpredictability of relying on someone else's work and time challenges, and also allow me to keep the price down for the backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
