I have been a fan of Chadwick Parker and Joe Huang's Kickstarter pen designs since they released the PHX-1 back in 2011. While that pen no longer sees action in my rotation their Solid Titanium Pen + Stylus still hits the page frequently, loaded out with an 0.3 mm Pilot Hi-Tec-C Cavalier refill. The design is excellent, unless you want to post the pen. The Ti POST RAW changes that.
Chadwick was kind enough to loan me one of his prototypes for a quick look and I am pleased with the new design. The main feature is the cap is able to post much deeper into the barrel as opposed to near the very end of the barrel in the previous design. The threads are also wider and longer, making for a more secure fit when the cap is posted. This gives the pen an improved overall balance.
While this is essentially an iterative design, it is one that was much needed for those who want to securely post their Ti pen. The other features, such as the ability to add a stylus tip and use a wide variety of refills, have gone unchanged and provide the excellent options available in their other offerings.
Their Kickstarter campaign for the Ti POST RAW has cruised past it's initial $5000 goal and is sitting above $40K with three weeks to go. Be sure to check it out if you are looking for a great EDC titanium pen. I did.
Thanks for the loaner Chadwick! I'll be mailing it back your way this week.
