Launching today on Kickstarter is one of the more unique projects I’ve seen in a long time: the Lattice Cubed Titanium Pen/Pencil from SALVO. Made possible through 3D printing technology, the body consists of only two titanium pieces joined by custom machined parts and finished with a gold or rhodium plated ring. By combining titanium with the lattice structure, the pen exhibits high strength while maintaining low weight.
The Lattice Cubed pen is available as either a pen or a mechanical pencil, both of which are operated via twist mechanism. The pen accepts widely available Parker-style refills (known as the “G2” outside the US, but not to be confused with the Pilot G2 refill). Further manufacturing specifications and measurements can be found on the Kickstarter project page.
This project is live as of this morning! (Link Here.) Pledges start at 200 Euros for a Super Early Bird, 225 Euros for an Early Bird, and 250 Euros for a regular backer, with delivery starting in May-June 2017.
Founded in 2016 by Ryan and Pia Salveson, SALVO was created as an innovative, technology-based design company, focusing on the application of 3D printing in pen design. With the goal of sharing their passion for 3D printing and technology, SALVO aims to bring 3D printing technology to everyday items.
