We buy the best equipment available to turn exceptional raw materials into finished goods. Everything we make is designed to be an heirloom-quality item that can be passed on to future generations so we never skimp on quality. Because of this drive, we only work with the best materials we can get our hands on. Here are our current offerings:

Titanium is the best selling of all of the materials we work with. It's not quite as light as aluminium, but significantly lighter than stainless steel, brass, and copper. Titanium is tough, lightweight, and extremely corrosion resistant. If there is one material we suggest over all others, it's titanium.


Because we don’t coat any of our pens, this material will patina and darken with time and use. Patina is a thin tarnish layer that forms on certain surfaces through oxidation or other chemical processes. It acts as a protective covering and also provides one of the coolest aspects of copper – it improves over time.


Bronze is an alloy consisting mostly of copper, tin, and other metals like aluminium, manganese, nickel, or zinc. It machines beautifully and looks great when highly polished or when it has some patina.


A small fraction of zircon is converted to the metal, which finds various niche applications because of its excellent resistance to corrosion. It is a lustrous, grey-white, strong transition metal that closely resembles hafnium and, to a lesser extent, titanium.


The alloy of brass we use has a fairly high copper content so it has many of the same antimicrobial properties that copper does. It machines beautifully and if you watch the machining videos you’ll see why we like to work with it. All parts of these pens are made from brass except the clip which is stainless steel and the mechanism which is titanium.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steels are most notable for their corrosion and staining resistance, which increases with increasing chromium content. This resistance, the low maintenance, and familiar luster make it an ideal material for many applications where both the strength of steel and corrosion resistance are required.

Anodized Aluminum

Aluminum metal has an appearance ranging from silvery white to dull gray, depending on the surface roughness. In most applications various alloys are used instead of pure because of their higher strength and hardness. It’s easily machined and an excellent thermal and electrical conductor, having 59% the conductivity of copper while only having 30% of the density.
