We are super pumped to be back with a new project! It's no secret that we love making unique pens from scratch that nobody else has. Mainly because we love versatile everyday objects that are disguised in clean and minimal-looking bodies. We've spent countless hours making sure that the 2 pens function well and stay true to our clean design aesthetic.
2 Titanium Click Pens
This project started with a vision to create 2 truly amazing titanium click pens from the ground-up. It has been a big challenge and a project that we have been working towards for over a year now. We can't even begin to tell you how many times we have been emailed and had requests to make a click pen version of our solid titanium pen + stylus. So, we listened and made what we felt are 2 of the most refill-friendly and versatile click pens ever.
Ti-Click PRO & Ti Click RTS
Our Ti-Click PRO is a pen that accepts a lot of the same popular refills that our Solid Titanium Pen + Stylus takes. You can see the full list of compatible refills further down the page. We will continue to update the list throughout the project.
Our Ti Click RTS is a slightly shorter pen that accepts the much requested Fisher space pen refill along with other Parker-Style refills. You can see the full list of compatible refills further down the page. We will continue to update the list throughout the project.
The Body and Tip Design
The body is a sleek, unbranded, and timeless design that will hold it's own for generations to come. The tip has our signature 3 ring finger detail to add some style and prevent your fingers from sliding down.
Ti Pocket Clip
One of the most challenging components to integrate was the titanium pocket clip. For most people the clip is an afterthought that's solved by buying an aftermarket clip, fastening 2 screws into the body and calling it a day. That's clearly not our style. We wanted the clip to purposefully flow into the overall pen design and not be interrupted by additional hardware and obtrusive screw heads. Easy, right? :) Not so much.
We spent around 2 months testing the strongest way to integrate the clip into the pen to find the perfect placement for balance, length, and tension. Not to mention, working out how all the internal moving parts could co-exist together in harmony. The seemingly effortless appearance is very deceiving of how much time and attention to detail has gone into making the the pen and clip look so simple and function well.
Worry-Free Tension Spring & Internal Mechanisms
We don't like to worry about or keep up with the springs and inside parts that usually fall out and get lost when you take most click pens apart. That's why we designed all our inside parts, including the spring to securely stay in place at all times. Changing refills has never been easier.
• Bead-blasted matte black (DLC - Diamond Like Carbon Coating)
• Bead-blasted matte silver (PVD Coating - Physical Vapor Deposition)
• High-polished & chrome coated
• Raw "stonewashed" finish (See update #5)
Custom Designed & Engineered Internal Mechanism
The internal click mechanism used in the pen is our own unique and custom design that we are going to have tooled. The mechanism will be make from an industry time-tested and high-strength ABS for smooth and reliable performance. We prefer to custom make our own parts because it allows us to ensure that every part being used fit perfectly, functions properly, and provides the best audible "click" sound for years to come.
Spring-Loaded Stylus Tip
We've spring-loaded the back plunger so the stylus stays upright and can be used at all times. It also eliminates any noise or plunger rattle that most traditional click pens have when the pen is engaged.
Conductive Silicone Stylus Tip
The stylus tips are the same responsive tips that we used on our previous titanium pens. They are 8mm tips and can be quickly replaced in a few seconds if you ever wear it out or if it gets damaged. They also are Red, Blue, & Black so you quickly see what color ink you have inside or just add some color to your pen.

Making unique products from scratch is something we are very comfortable with doing. We have been working for months to ensure everything is lined up to get started once we have the necessary funding in place. Making something new always requires creative thinking once production issues surface. This is why we will be working with the same time-tested and trust-worthy network of people that we have been with all of our other pen projects and prototypes. We enjoy sharing exclusive info, images, and news about the projects to keep everyone involved in the production process and share what it takes to make the pens from scratch.
It's so nice to meet you too...

Risks and challenges
Similar to our past projects, we have put a lot of work, time, and thought into each aspect of what it will take to successfully complete this project. Our biggest challenge will be meeting our shipping delivery dates if the project is extremely over funded. Taking a product from a prototype into mass production will always surface new challenges that have to be addressed. It takes time and patience to make the right call and can even lead to minor changes and tweaks in the appearance than what the prototypes currently show. Since this will be the first production run, we may have to change some things and will let everyone know about any changes via project updates. We have experience with large scale manufacturing and have established solid relationships with our manufacturing partners to minimize our risks and to help deliver the best rewards possible for backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
