Ultimate Clicky Pen
The Ultimate Clicky Pen is made in the USA, smooth as silk, designed to last a lifetime and quite possibly, the perfect clicky pen.
So what is The Ultimate Clicky Pen? It’s an all metal clicky pen with a body machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum. For proper balance, a tip machined out of 303 Stainless Steel. To stay put in your pocket, a clip pressed out of spring steel and then coated for durability and corrosion resistance. A spacer for fitting multiple cartridges (Fisher / Foray / Parker) and at its heart, a machined advancing mechanism with a ball bearing cam design for silky smooth operation.
What exactly makes this pen special, what makes it better? First of all this is no disposable plastic pen. It’s a machined beauty and designed to be entirely modular and last a lifetime. In addition to the thoughtful design, The Ultimate Clicky Pen is both functional and stunningly beautiful at once with a weight and balance that feels like magic in your hand and brings life to your words.
Having designed numerous pens before, about a year ago I started working on designing an all metal, machined clicky pen. Unfortunately, I found that unlike standard pens the leap between designing and building a machined clicky pen is bigger than I thought.
I have the designs, the mechanisms and functioning hand machined prototypes. What I need is your help and funding to create a first production run on a CNC and get custom springs made. Since we’ve already got the designs and prototypes, turn around time should be pretty quick (~2-3 months max including anodizing and assembly) and everything is being made in Arizona.
