8-Bit Seasonal Release

8-Bit Seasonal Release

Launching April 27, 2023 @ Noon Central

It's time to power up the old CRT TV, dig your favorite gaming system out of the attic, and blow some dust out of the cartridges. Our latest Seasonal Release, 8-Bit, is inspired by early video game consoles with a black and gray matte Cerakote finish, a bright orange clip with a deep-engraved pattern, and a red "reset" Side Click button for when you're done jotting down notes or run out of extra lives.

Built once again on both the Side Click and Slim Side Click models in our three lengths (Standard, Short, and Mini), 8-Bit comes with a themed box and arcade token in lieu of metal cards from previous releases. This is also the first time we're featuring a contrasted tip and body and subtle "RESET" side engraving.

Our hope was to capture the excitement from long nights trying to beat that one level. While the retro nostalgia might not hit the same for every generation, we think the design is a worthy homage to anyone who appreciates the classics. 8-Bit is available for purchase starting April 27, 2023 until June 27, 2023.

Fully 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.

Available for a Limited Time Only
