Sprout Seasonal Release

Sprout Seasonal Release

Chlorophyll, photosynthesis, xylem, and phloem. While not all of us are born with green thumbs it doesn't take a botanist to appreciate the beauty of plant life. Inspired by the humble houseplant providing freshness and greenery in unnatural, modern environments, Sprout borrows design elements from the Plantae kingdom – adding a welcome pop of color to your desk, pocket, or backpack with no water or sunlight required.

This is our first time offering a Seasonal Release in 4 different titanium pen models: the Side Click, Bolt Action, Slim Side Click, and Slim Bolt Action. Each are available in Standard, Short, and Mini lengths for maximal ink refill compatibility. The Sprout colorway consists of a two-tone, glossy green Cerakote painted body, white screw and bolt accents, and a complex foliage laser engraving on a terracotta brown clip. And for a little springtime fun, each pen comes with commemorative box, sticker, and seed packet (domestic orders only, sorry).

Stretching the theme across our catalog is new and exciting but it also means a lot more SKUs for our production and paint teams to juggle with a short turnaround time. We'll do our best to have all models and lengths on hand for the entire duration but a particular pen is out of stock, sign up to be automatically notified when we add inventory.

Sprout will be available for purchase starting April 30 at noon Central until June 30, 2024.

Custom Cerakote Finishing

Cerakote is a thin coating of ceramic that we apply to the surface of titanium pens in our own paint shop. It's abrasion, chemical, temperature, and scratch resistance but not proof. Hard wear will still show on Cerakote but we love that it gives us the ability to put colors on our pens without adding any serious weight or thickness. Every step from raw material to customer service and fulfillment, including the painting, is handled in our Dallas, TX shop.
