Kickstarter Highlight: Titaner Bolt Pen
Crowdfunding is fast becoming the world’s go-to platform for new releases. But do you ever find it hard to cut through the noise and pin down the ones worth your hard-earned? Well, that’s where this sponsored series comes in. We’re vetting carry Kickstarters for you, digging up the facts, and shedding light on the ones we think are worth a closer look.
This week’s selection: Titaner and their Bolt Pen.
Let down by your daily pen?
Rummage in your bag or pat down your pockets and you’ll probably find a pen. And why not? Whether you’re scribbling down shopping lists, meeting notes or contact details, having a pen within easy reach makes sense. What doesn’t make sense? Not getting the most out of your EDC, and for a lot of folks their daily pen leaves a lot to be desired. So Titaner, experts in making titanium camping, survival and tactical gear, set their minds towards solving a conundrum. Can you create a pen that’s beautiful, multifunctional, durable, satisfying and comfortable to use every day?
Guess what? You can. And they did. Meet the Titaner Bolt Pen.
The everyday pen, elevated
Lightweight durability, everyday functionality and a few hidden tricks, all in one easily portable piece? No problem for the Titaner Bolt Pen. The pen is crafted with one of the ultimate EDC materials, featuring a machined Grade 5 titanium chassis. Loved by enthusiasts for its excellent weight to strength ratio, titanium is durable enough to withstand daily use for years on end, while light enough that it won’t weigh you down on the go.
And hey, the fact that it brings suave style to any setting certainly doesn’t hurt either. There’s even three finishes to suit personal tastes including a subtle sandblasted matte, a sleek silver satin and a stealthy black porcelain.
As the name suggests, the Bolt Pen features a satisfying bolt action, but stands out from the crowd with a bolt that’s welded in place. The design allows for secure and convenient one-handed bolt action use.
Like to change up your writing from time to time, or worried that your preferred refill won’t fit? The Bolt Pen provides an elegant solution to this potential problem with an adjustable refill barrel that accepts a variety of refills. Even better, the clever design uses the removable pen clip as a screwdriver to easily adjust the barrel, so you don’t need to waste time hunting for a separate screwdriver.
More than meets the eye
Titaner figured if you’re going to carry something every day, wouldn’t it be better if it could perform multiple functions instead of just one? So they designed the Bolt Pen to do just that. Not only is it an elegant EDC pen, but it also includes a tungsten glass breaker for emergency use and a hidden mini pin that’s very handy for removing SIM cards or pressing device reset buttons.
A balance of style and comfort
The Bolt Pen has been carefully crafted to be well balanced for user comfort. Additionally, the pen includes o-ring grips for improved control and grip. Lightweight, strong, durable, and corrosion resistant, this is the kind of pen you’ll enjoy using for years to come. And with its sturdy yet chic style, you’ll feel right at home reaching for it at work, during your downtime or out and about.
Take your EDC to the next level with Titaner and their Bolt Pen, available through their Kickstarter campaign which runs until 9 February 2018.
Note: this is a sponsored series, but only the best candidates are given this feature placement.
