About this project
We here at Everyman put a lot of thought into the items we carry with us everyday, and next to our wallet the thing we care most about is our pen. While everyone has their favorite pen, we all have things we’d change or improve about them. People who love the Pilot G2, wish they weren’t plastic, throw-away pens. People who love the Zebra F-701 wish the clip was stronger and wrote more smoothly. And people who love the Fisher space pen wish for a clicky-pen version with a better grip. After scouring EDC forums it seemed to us that there is a void in the market for a well designed, refillable, buy-for-life pen that takes G2 and Space Pen refills AND that doesn't break the bank... so... we set out to create what we think is the Perfect EDC pen.
We started our design by taking our favorite elements from pens we've been carrying for years and then incorporated those into a thoughtfully designed, 100% aluminum pen body. After months of prototyping and testing, we gave the latest prototype to our friend and award-winning children’s author & illustrator, Jon Klassen, for a spin (see the results in the video above). We're pretty happy with what we (and he) came up with...
Designed to fit in with your minimal everyday carry, built to last and priced about $20 cheaper than it's closest competitor - the Grafton is the EDC pen you've always wanted. With your help, we hope to have the Grafton in your pockets and on your desks in just few short months.

Risks and challenges
We learned a lot during the process of completing our last campaign (The Porter Key Knife) and feel like we have gained the experience to make this an even more successful campaign and product. We are very confident in our ability to deliver a great product and in a timely manner. If the Grafton is successfully funded, we will have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadline. We have manufacturing, operations, and logistics set up and ready to go. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for production and manufacturing of the Grafton Pen. Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always indirect or unseen tasks that may present itself during the process of productions. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible and also ahead of schedule to make this a great experience for our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
