After nearly 10 years of requests, we’ve finally gotten around to “officially” working with titanium on a pen. Over the course of the last three years, we’ve invested time and money into our machines, programs, and tools to set ourselves up for success on this journey. In 2019, we realized expanding our pens to include bronze and titanium was something that would happen sooner or later, and we immediately began taking steps to make that happen. During our 2020 planning meetings, we sketched out a path to releasing the Bolt V2 in titanium which ended up taking nearly two years to realize. The final product was the launch of the Tumbled Titanium Bolt V2 at the end of 2021. Now we’re officially adding titanium to the EDK V2 as well. We’re extremely excited to announce the addition of titanium as a production option to our pocket ballpoint pen, the EDK V2.
The Tumbled Titanium EDK V2 is machined from barstock, grade 5 (6Al 4V) titanium that is custom-ground to our specifications. The lower and upper body are all machined on our CNC Swiss lathes with upgraded tooling and programming. Final machining on the upper bodies for the clip slot and threads is then completed on our CNC mills. All of the parts have then been tumbled in a liquid and ceramic media for a minimum of 6 hours to give a unified look and “soft” but tactile feel to the body of the pen. Using a custom setup we then smooth the inside of the upper barrel for smooth operation. We’ve used our tumbled stainless steel clip and screws for this release. When checking out, you’ll be prompted to select your refill type. Ships in our recyclable packaging with a custom vinyl sticker.
