The Move Mini Bolt-Action Pen

Kickstarter pens and an EDC load out go together like peanut butter and jelly around these parts. Actually, we go one step further than that. No EDC kit is complete without a quality pen. A lot of the really good options you have for writing instruments these days are based on, or started as, pens from Kickstarter. ... continue reading

EDC Pen

Spend enough time using anything and you're bound to come up with some little improvements and tweaks the original creator didn't think of. When independent designers are pumping out pens on Kicstarter at the frenetic pace they are, it becomes even more relevant. This is especially true because when you come up with ... continue reading

Triumvir Tri-Color Pen

We already have plenty of pens from Kickstarter. They run the gamut in materials, operating mechanisms, colors and cost. We're buying the Triumvir anyways because a) we have to collect them all, and b) we don't have a tri-color pen from Kickstarter. It's actually kind of baffling to us that it took someone this long ... continue reading

Pens of Kickstarter

Thanks to Kickstarter, putting pen to paper is hardly a thing of the past. In all fairness it never really went away, but Kickstarter helped put lots of cool options in our hands, bags and desk drawers. They all have a few things in common: they’re better than anything you’d find in a big box store; they’re pricier than a crate of BICs and they’re generally made out of a durable material like aluminum or brass. Here are some of our ... ... continue reading

FriXion Erasable Pens

Erasable pens aren't new. Good erasable pens are. Most of the ones you can find at your local drug store are junk and leave clear evidence of your writing after you've "erased" the ink. These Pilot FriXion Erasale Pens finally get the idea right. The thermo-sensitive ink in the different pens (and highlighter) allow ... continue reading

A good pen is an investment. Unfortunately, that investment is usually in a writing instrument that is, as best we can put it, "stuffy." The Titanium Bolt Action pen is not. Designed by Rainer Wenning and knifemaker Thomas Braunagel, the Titanium Bolt Action Pen is as fine a writing device as it is a self-defense tool. ... continue reading

BAUX Pen

As you can clearly see from our backing history, we kinda have a thing for Kickstarter pen projects. Seriously, some of them are so similar and we still back each one.
