About

 

Thank you so much for checking out our page! 

We've created the ultimate everyday pen. Until about a year ago I only used cheap, plastic throw-away pens. That is, until I was introduced to the world of high-quality writing instruments... I couldn't believe that I was investing in journals, planners, and other tools but had been neglecting the pen - the actual connection between my thoughts and paper. 

 

There was a hole in the market that needed to be filled. The high-end fountain pens were a pleasure to write with but weren't suited for everyday notes or carrying around in my pocket. And the metal tactical pens were reliable but bulky and unattractive. 

We set out to design a pen that could be used for every occasion and be just as fasionable as a nice watch. This meant there were certain non-negotiable criteria that had to be met:

  • Made from the highest quality materials
  • Sleek and minimal design
  • Uncompromised writing experience

 

 This pen feels familiar, welcoming, and easy to use, making it a perfect everyday carry. Yet at the same time, it is refined and modern enough to proudly display on a desk.

There are no plastic parts here. The solid metal pen body flows seamlessly into the all metal click mechanism. The body is machined out of a single piece of metal here in the U.S.A. and the metal components are imported from Germany. 

The pen is made of only 3 metal parts plus the refill.

We went through dozens of ink refills before finding the perfect ceramic-tipped rollerball. It has the ink flow properties of a fountain pen, with the convenience of a ballpoint.

 

 

 

It's time to throw away that cheap, plastic ballpoint and replace it today at a fraction of the future retail price!

 

The first batch of pens is available in FOUR styles with your choice of blue or black ink.

The Stainless Steel pen has a beautiful machined finish and a solid weight. The steel compliments the chrome click mechanism for a true one-piece look.

The Brass pen is unfinished and will develop a unique patina over time. It's the heaviest of the four styles which makes it a perfect desk pen for signatures and quick notes.

The aluminum pens are anodized in a matte black or fiery red. The lightest in weight, these pens are great for long writing sessions or carrying around in your pocket.

In order to turn this dream into a reality, we need your support. Not only does this mean pledging for an awesome pen, but sharing the story with a friend. If the funding goal is not met....we get nothing.

We are doing everything we can to spread the word in a variety of ways. But if you could do something as simple as post this page on your Facebook, it can really go a long way.

 

 

 

Manufacturing projects, such as this, are generally only cost effective if you reach a certain quantity threshold. Setting up custom tooling only makes sense for large production runs, and component suppliers have minimum order quantities. We have spoken with and received quotes from our manufacturer here in the U.S.A., and they are ready to start production if this campaign is a success. 

We hope you will join us in this campaign to create the ultimate everyday pen. We cannot do it without your help, so please, hit the green button on the right to become a backer and help bring this to life.

Thanks and have a great day!

 

 

Risks and challenges

We already have quotes from our suppliers and had pre-production samples built by them. This means that all the design challenges have been discovered and addressed. We are ready for a full production run. The design elements or dimensions may need to be slightly adjusted during mass production to ensure we produce the best pens for everyone.

Problems can still arise, as with any production run, but we have done everything in our power to avoid delays. Should any issues occur, we will do everything we can to resolve them and stay on track.
