Ti Ultra :  3-in-1 Pen That Gives You Ultimate Control

Our newest pen design is a solid grade 5 titanium pen that lets you dramatically transform and customize it to write exactly how you want. Plus it provides the freedom for you to explore, switch and drastically reconfigure your writing experience in only seconds.

The Why

We've always found it pretty frustrating that large pen companies essentially offer the same exact pens in 3 configurations. They usually sell a ballpoint, rollerball, or fountain pen version but you're forced to pick one or buy multiple pens. Also, the parts and threads are rarely engineered to be cross-compatible so you do not have the flexibility to convert your existing pen to another style without buying an entirely new pen. 

Although we understand why pen companies make you buy multiple versions of essentially the same pen ($$$), we wanted to design one titanium "chameleon" pen that provided the ability to be all three pen types without the 3x price tag or ever locking you into just one pen type.

The Solution

We love having options and letting you have control over what inks or refills you want to use. For the past three years, we've been quietly designing and refining the Ti Ultra so it would be more than just a nice stand alone pen.  Ultimately, we had a vision to make a pen that would allow you dramatically change your writing experience without having to buy multiple pens.

The Ti Ultra lets you customize and create the perfect writing experience for your individual style. It provides freedom for you to explore, experiment, and has the flexibility to transform from a fountain pen, ballpoint pen, or rollerball pen in seconds. No hacks, no spacers, no complicated setup...it simply works with virtually any refill/ink you can toss inside to provide the most customizable and flexible writing experience we've designed yet. 

The same pen can transform into a fountain pen, rollerball, or ballpoint any time you want.

Explore, Play, Reconfigure...Ultimately You Decide

Don't worry, we totally get it...if you aren't a regular/avid fountain pen user then picking one up for the first time can be really intimidating. Additionally, some work environment (and papers) honestly favor a ballpoint or rollerball style refill. Having the freedom to explore, experiment and quickly reconfigure your pen without having to buy another lets you have virtually limitless options on how you want to setup the perfect pen for your day.

All About The Ink

Arguably, what ink or refill you have inside your pen plays a huge factor in providing a pleasant writing experience for you. There seems to be an endless sea of options on the market and being able to experiment and find your perfect setup or switch back and forth as needed has never been easier.

 Works With 750+ Ballpoint & Rollerball Refills

We are known for making pens are compatible with more refills than any other brand, it's kind of our thing. With so many great refills on the market, we don't see the point in locking you into using only one if we can engineer a way for them all to fit perfectly inside without any hacks, modifications, or spacers. 

So, that's exactly what we did...we spent the time and effort to make it possible for over 750+ refills from major manufactures all fit like they were custom designed to be the star.

Patent-pending grip accepts 750+ refills without any adapters, spacers, hacks, or annoying tip-wiggle.

Risks and challenges

This is our 27th Kickstarter project so we are very comfortable knowing what it will take to bring this project to a successful completion. The only risks we foresee would be the project taking a little longer to produce and fulfill if it's extremely over funded or having a couple pieces lost in the mail. To help with these possibilities we always make extras and add in some extra lead time to be safe.
