These new pens are an evolution of my original and extremely popular "EDC Ink" (Everyday Carry) pens. Designed to always be with you and ready when you need them.
This new design takes these beautifully minimal and seamless pens to the next level, by making them even more minimal while also adding the ability to screw the cap to the back of the pen. Making them longer when you are using them.
New STRATA Engraving - JUST ADDED!
Thanks to all of the Backers that voted for this new engraving... I'm making it available as one of the standard engraving option ($10 per pen).
CLIP Version • DEEP CARRY CLIP
I've worked very hard to completely integrate the clip into the minimal design of the pen. This elegant clip is fully functional and allows you to attach the pens to pockets, notebooks, bags, etc. The clip is cut from a solid piece of Grade 5 TITANIUM and hand finished.
This "Deep Carry" Clip design also allows the pen to sit almost flush with whatever it is clipped to.
The CLIP version is the perfect companion for compact travel notebooks or pocket carry.
"SPECIAL ARTIST EDITION" Engraving
Introducing Joy Han, an incredibly talented artist and illustrator that works on television, movie, and game design here in Los Angeles. Click here to see more of her beautiful work.
It's really enjoyable for me to collaborate with such a great artist, and to create something that I would have never come up with on my own!
This is a hand drawn graphic showing a flock of birds making their way up the pen barrel. For those that love the purity of the pens but want to add some delightful and unique graphic elements.
For the FLIGHT Engraving, add $15 per pen to your pledge amount (FLIGHT is available on CLIP, POCKET, & KEYCHAIN versions).
FLIGHT was by far the most popular engraving voted on by the Kickstarter Backers.
V2 • EDC Ink • PEN VERSIONS
The pens come in three versions.
CLIP Version : Beautifully integrated "Deep-Carry" clip allows you to easily attach the pen to just about anything.
POCKET Version : The purest most minimal version. You can't even tell it's a pen with its seamless design.
KEYCHAIN Version : Same as the POCKET version but has a hole in the cap with a small split-ring installed. This allows the pen to be attached to a keyring. (Large TITANIUM keyring can be added for $5 each)
V2 • EDC Ink • PEN DIMENSIONS
The CLIP version is slightly longer than the POCKET & KEYCHAIN versions.
V2 • EDC Ink • FINISH OPTIONS
I really love the look of the pure NAKED pen, but am offering several very cool finish options that add functionality as well as creating a very cool look. All finish options are available on the CLIP, POCKET, & KEYCHAIN versions.
The NAKED Version
The NAKED version has no engravings or finish and is extremely clean and elegant. You can't even tell it's a pen!
This cool new engraving is perfectly symmetrical, emanating from the very center of the pen. My goal was to create a beautiful design while also adding texture to the grip area of the pen.
For the ION Engraving, add $10 per pen to your pledge amount.
The PRO engraving adds additional function to your pen with both INCH and MM measurement scales on the same pen. It also adds some texture, making the pen a little easier to grip.
For the PRO Engraving, add $10 per pen to your pledge amount.
The PRO engraving will be offered in two versions as seen below. The MM scale is the same on both versions. The difference is on the INCH scale. The INCH Fractional scale is the more traditional scale seen on most rulers and tape measures. The INCH Decimal scale is the standard for the Design and Engineering industries and makes it easier to write decimal measurements.
So you can get the most out of your pen, you can choose the version you prefer after the campaign ends.
With this version, I was looking at ways to lighten the weight of the pen even more. The pattern is simple and allows you to see the inner workings of the pen, which is pretty cool! It takes a long time to drill all of those holes in Titanium!
For the SILENCER Option, add $20 per pen to your pledge amount.
V2 • EDC Ink • Awesome "D1" Ink Refill
All of the pens that I have made use this awesome refill. Each pen comes with the OHTO "D1" Needle Point refill with black ink. Installed and ready to use.
The "D1" refill is a standard size that you can find easily. This refill size is available from many manufactures, so you can experiment with different inks and colors. Including PILOT, LAMY, ZEBRA, SCHMIDT, UNI, KAWECO, and even the popular Fisher Space Pen refill (version U4F, U2F, and U1F).
For extra BLUE or BLACK ink refills, add $2.25 per refill to your pledge amount.
ADD ON : LARGE TITANIUM KEYRING
These large TITANIUM keyrings are the perfect companion to the KEYCHAIN version. I've looked everywhere to find the perfect TITANIUM keyring.
To add the LARGE TITANIUM KEYRING, add $5 per KEYRING to your pledge amount.
Each pen comes complete in a beautiful gift box with instructions, so they make a great gift to yourself, or someone you love!
NEW PATENT PENDING DESIGN
The threads are now hidden internally on the tip and back of the pen... allowing you to screw the cap onto the back of the pen! It is pretty awesome!
I've been working very hard on these so I really hope you love them! As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
Risks and challenges
I now have three very successful pen projects here on Kickstarter, so I know what to expect, and have my workshop setup and ready to go. Since I make all of the pens myself in my workshop here in Los Angeles you are guaranteed to get the highest quality.
The most challenging thing to estimate is the number of pens that I will need to make. My forecast is based on all of my past projects so it should be pretty close.
Regular updates - I always put a lot of effort into communicating the project's progress. Showing what is going on, so you can follow the journey since you are helping to make these pens possible.
Please check out the comments on my past projects. My goal is that you have a great experience and get an awesome reward!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
