Introducing: The Machine Era Field Pen

Friends and followers,

This overhaul of our original Field Pen now features a custom made bolt action mechanism integrated with a fully machined (and yes, springy) aircraft grade aluminum clip. We’ve been in the prototyping phase for over a year now working out the design features, and are excited to finally get this into your hands!

Made for Everyday Carry

The Field Pen is specifically designed to be your everyday pen. It’s reliable, perfectly balanced, sports clean lines, solid construction, and is piece of EDC you’ll love to carry. It’s compact and durable with a solid in-hand feel. The shape of the bolt slot follows natural motion and allows for silky smooth action.

Fully machined from solid stock. That means every side and angle has been machine cut. By using Swiss-type turning techniques, we’re able to deliver parts that are extremely accurate (tenth of a thousandth of an inch). Not only is precision important for mechanical parts, it also creates a flawless finish on the pen body.

Whether you're out in the field, or in the office, it'll always be at the ready.

Ink

Being an all-purpose-every-situation pen, we designed it around the waterproof, zero gravity pressurized cartridge. Otherwise known as the space pen type cartridge. The Field Pen fits Fisher Space Pen, as well as the (space pen equivalent) Schmidt Megaline 4889 (included).

Materials

Two very different materials, same solid in hand feel. Brass will age nicely and will patina to a spent-shell-casing, golden brown. If patina isn’t your style, the stainless version will suit your needs well. It will never change color, rust, or corrode. Logos are fiber laser engraved for durability and optimal mark quality.

The Clip

The clip is cut from 7000 series high yield strength aluminium. By utilizing the properties of this material coupled with design, we were able to create a part that will flex and spring back into shape. Perfect for sliding into a pocket.

Rewards

In addition to Brass and Stainless versions of the Field Pen, we’re offering a special edition Machine Era Wallet with custom engravings (only available on Kickstarter). This discounted EDC Kit includes:

  • Black DLC Coated Stainless Wallet
