About

 Hi, Kickstarters! We are BoO Barcelona.

We have always wanted to design with carbon fiber, but we didn't just want visual elements without a real use. For this reason, we have been working the technical characteristics of carbon fiber for more than a year, to develop a 2 mm lead holder which can only be produced in carbon fiber: CARBONARA pencil.

 

The Carbonara pencil doesn't have any mechanisms and it works through bending of the carbon fiber 3K sarga with a bidirectional fiber orientation and aluminum 5000 serie. This set acts as a pen. When you press the carbon fiber it opens and the lead slides out and when you stop pressing, it closes.

Give a CARBONARA pencil as a present to your beloved ones and hand over this voucher for Christmas. Send us an email (carbonara@carbonarapencil.com) and we will include the name you want.

The CARBONARA pencil has a quick lead release. You only have to press the carbon fiber to release the aluminum tip and the lead will slide in and out. The hole that permits the bending of the carbon fiber can also be used as a lead window, to see the color of the lead, the hardness of it.

STRETCH GOALS:

  • Material: Carbon fiber 3K Sarga with a bidirectional fiber orientation, Aluminum 5000 serie, and Cerakote coatings ® in aluminum parts.
  • Weight (without lead): 7,3 grams (0,26 oz)
  • Length: 137 mm (5,39 inch) x Diameter: 10 mm (0,39 inch)

Carbon fiber is a high-performance material which is used mainly in the aerospace, nautical and sports industries. This material offers incomparable durability and rigidity, even during a life of intensive use. The excellent mechanical properties and its technological aesthetic make it a luxury product, differential, almost exclusive.

We have much experience managing a huge industrial production, and thanks to this we will ensure the highest quality of manufacturing.

We have already produced a small quantity of CARBONARA pencils. To speed up the production process we will start producing the Super Early Bird and the Early Bird rewards before the campaign has ended. So you will receive your CARBONARA pencil as early as possible.

To ensure a flawless quality of our product, we will revise every part of the production and make sure it is perfect to guarantee that your CARBONARA pencil will be faultless.

You can reach us by any of these following methods:

Risks and challenges

The main risks and challenges are production delays. Even though we are working with industrial machines there are few risks in delay of the raw materials, machines can break down, etc. If an unlikely scenario takes place, our first priority will be to communicate the situation to our backers.
