It must be pen Kickstarter season, because I feel like I've been writing one of these alerts on an almost weekly basis! Today is the launch of the Steel & Flint Pen, a "soft-close" magnetic pen from the UK. I've been following Steel & Flint on Instagram over the past couple of months and have been drooling over this pen design, both the cool opening/closing mechanism and the knurling on the grip. The pen uses the Schmidt Easyflow 9000 Refill (a hybrid ballpoint) and is compatible with any Parker-style refill. It also ships with a Solid Oak desk display/pen rest.
The Steel & Flint Pen is available on Kickstarter at early bird pricing of just £45. Colors include Basalt Black, Satin Silver & Champagne Gold. I have a prototype on the way, so look for a review in the next couple weeks.
