Ti2 Stealth Tip Pen Giveaway

Ti2 Stealth

The Ti2 project on Kickstarter is down to its final week, and to mark that last push to the finish line the team behind the project has offered up a special giveaway to readers of The Pen Addict.

Up for grabs is one of the special models of the Ti2 Pen - the Ti2 with Stealth Tip. This is a limited run of the Ti2 featuring a chemically blackened Pilot Hi-Tec-C tip. As a bonus, if there are more than 500 entries on this post a second winner will be chosen and will also win a Stealth Tip Ti2!

Since I really want to give away that second pen, I am running this giveaway for a longer time frame than normal, so please read the rules below on how to enter.

  1. Leave one comment on this post anytime between now, and Saturday night at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. You are limited to one entry. This contest is open to US and International readers!

  2. For this contest, I will pick one winner at random from the comments section of this post. The comments will be numbered in the order they are received, i.e. the first comment is #1, the second #2, and so on. The Random Integer Generator at will be used to pick the number of the winner. If there are over 500 entries, a second winner will be selected in the same manner.

  3. The contest winner will be posted on Sunday, June 17th. The winner will have one week to email me via the Contact button at the top of the page.

Thank you to the Ti2 Pen team for providing these products for giveaway. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter for future updates.

Ti2 Pen Hands-On

Ti2 Titanium Pen

I mentioned in last week’s Kickstarter post that I had a Ti2 sample on the way, and now that it has arrived I wanted to share my first impressions. I do apologize for the poor lighting in the photos. Time constraints!

The very first thing that stood out when I unpackaged the Ti2 is how perfect the weight and balance felt. You feel like you are holding a strong and durable pen but it is not as heavy as you think it might be. With the cap posted it is a touch long and has a different balance point but is still very comfortable to write with. I have found myself using it mostly unposted so far.

I was curious to see how the o-rings would work on the barrel and they do surprisingly well. The ones in the grip area provide that little extra without getting in the way and both ends do a great job of holding the cap firmly in place. There is no play on the cap at all when it is on either end. We will see how they handle wear and tear over time but at least they are easily replaceable.

Overall, I think the Ti2 is a great barrel option for the Pilot Hi-Tec-C refill. At $50 it is not cheap, but it is in line with other Kickstarter options. If you really want to step your game up take a look at the recently added Ti2 Black Edition. It is out of my budget at $125 but wow is it good looking.

Big thanks to the Ti2 team for sending me this sample!
