Hi Kosmonauts! Last year we brought the KOSMOS Pen to life with your help. By now we shipped over 3000 pens around the world. Many of you have been waiting for a Titanium Version and after months of refinement we are finally able to present: the KOSMOS Titan.   

With your support we will be able to realize the production run of this ultimate Titanium Version of KOSMOS in two beautiful surface finishes. 

Just shift the Cap! - The magnetic forces inside KOSMOS are perfectly balanced. A strong Neodymium magnet holds the cap safely in the idle and writing position.

The best Material for a Lifetime Product - each part of KOSMOS is lathed from a solid block of highly durable Grade-5 Titanium.

The KOSMOS Titan is precision-machined out of solid Grade-5 Titanium. This remarkable material combines highest durability with exceptional light weight. We worked hard to achieve KOSMOS’ ultra-high tolerances with Titanium. The effort paid off: the magnetic mechanism works more smoothly than ever which gives the pen a unique feel of quality.

The Titan comes in two distinct finishes: a mirror polished version and a matt version.

The KOSMOS Titan comes in a redesigned matt-laminated premium packaging in all black.

The Mirror-Polished Version of Titan runs through multiple extensive polishing stages to make it shine like a mirror.

The classic version of KOSMOS is precision-machined from solid Grade-6 Aluminium. It comes with a matt surface finish, which runs through a special anodisation process. This makes the pen very resistant against scratches and wear.

For this new Kickstarter campaign, we improved the functionality of the classic Aluminium KOSMOS entirely. This 2.0 version of our original pen is not available anywhere else yet. Same as the KOSMOS Titan it comes with refined tolerances and a even smoother mechanism.

You can choose from 3 reward tiers: the KOSMOS Titan in a single pack, the KOSMOS Titan in a 2-pack and the classic KOSMOS Aluminium. 

If you’d like to receive multiple rewards, simply add the respective amount to your pledge:

  • €89 KOSMOS Titan
  • €169 KOSMOS Titan 2-pack
  • €45 KOSMOS Aluminium

You will select the color you'd like to get in a Backerkit survey after the campaign.

The stilform Accessories will be available in the Backerkit Survey after the campaign.

To make your KOSMOS Pen truly the perfect everyday carry, we created a Leather Pouch that protects and holds it safely while you're on the go.
The Walnut Holder is the perfect place to keep your KOSMOS and present its design even better – wherever it may be: whether on your desk at work or at home in your living room.

   

Specifications:

  • KOSMOS Titan Material: Grade-5 Titanium, Weight: 42
  • KOSMOS Classic Material: Grade-6 Aluminium, Weight: 26 g
  • Black Premium Cartridge with German Ink and Swiss Tungsten Tip included, Size M
  • Compatible with all G2 Standard Refills (Parker-Style Refills)
  • Gift Box Packaging

We have been working together with our trusted manufacturer for a long time. The production of the KOSMOS Titan is all set up and we have already produced a small batch of the polished version. In the process we gained valuable experience and resolved the production challenges of the Titanium material. So now we can make sure the production of all Kickstarter rewards runs as smoothly as possible.
To speed up the production process we arranged special condition with our manufacturer: We will order the raw material and start first lathing operations even before the campaign has ended. So you will receive your highly anticipated KOSMOS Titan as early as possible.

The final quality control of the pens will be done by ourselves personally. Afterwards a professional fulfillment partner will take care of the shipping of packages to your homes.

Sometimes the simplest things are the most profound. Attention to detail is of utmost importance when you want to look good.

Design and style should work toward making you look good and feel good without a lot of effort so you can get on with the things that matter. Follow us on our journey! - stilform 

   

Risks and challenges

The main risks and challenges are as follows:

Production delays:
We are working with extremely experienced machining and finishing suppliers that are used to handling quantities well over the amount that are typical for Kickstarter which means that there is little risk of a production bottleneck. Though it is unlikely, delays can still happen as machinery can break down, raw materials can arrive late etc. which can create unanticipated setbacks. If this highly unlikely scenario takes place, frequent communication and transparency with our backers is our top priority.

Pens are popular on Kickstarter so our funding goal could be exceeded significantly. Maintaining consistent quality - There are separate quality control procedures at every manufacturing step so defect rates are very low. We have the experience to realize high quality products through our background as a industrial design agency.

Shipping large volumes - If we will get highly overfunded, all products will be packaged and sent by a professional logistics warehouse so we will be able to pack shipments quickly and without mistakes.
