What if I designed my own pen? That is the question Dave Colliver asked himself, and the result is the appropriately titled if… Pen, now live on Kickstarter.
What sets the if… Pen apart is the way the tip of the refill is protected when not writing, and how a squeeze of the grip gets the pen ready to write. Dave calls this Single Motion Activation, where a simple press retracts the integrated cap and exposes the refill. One click of the end cap snaps the protective cap back in place. It’s quite a unique mechanism.
The barrel of the pen is injection molded in one Titanium piece and features an integrated clip. This allows for a strong attachment to your pocket or backpack and you never have to worry about the clip breaking or bending. The barrel is also designed with a low center of gravity to keep the if… Pen from rolling away.
Any Parker-style (International G2) refill will fit, including the Fisher Space Pen and Schmidt P900. All Kickstarter orders will be coded with an 01 so you know your pen came from the first batch.
Starting at $66, the if… Pen is now available on Kickstarter, so click over and check out all the unique features this pen offers.
My thanks to Dave and the if… Pen for sponsoring The Pen Addict this week.
