The Bolt Machined Bolt Action Pen

Yes, this is another Kickstarter project about a pen. Right now, it’s only a project video, but eventually it will probably end up in the Approved: list. So, what makes The Bolt different? There’s a sweet bolt action mechanism to release the ink. There’s no cap to lose. The materials are being left raw so the pen will develop its own patina over time. Karas Kustoms has a proven track record of success with the Render-K. We’re excited about the pen, but even more stoked about the guys and the process behind it. No. Overseas. Manufacturing. At all. You’re not going to pledge to support this pen and have to wait six-to-nine lifetimes to get it. It’s all made in the US by friends, family and neighbors of Karas Kustoms, and the guys are going to put the entire process on the Internet. It’s like being able to support an episode of a Discovery Channel show except you also get a sweet pen out of the deal.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
