Never buy this pen. Mine showed up leaking ink all over everything. I cleaned it up and set it aside for another day. It was not until month later that I order refills for the pen (HI-TEC-C) only to learn that my pen was defective in manufacturing and the tip did not secure the ink refill. It is unusable. I contacted Massdrop and the support I got on a $70 pen that was complete junk on arrival? Zip. Nothing. I have email that says "Sorry". Yeah, that was worth $70.
I'm not a fan of this pen. It's very heavy. With a fine tip for precision writing, this pen will encumber your precision. More momentum means it's harder to quickly move directions and lift the pen from paper. I used this pen with a 0.4mm tip.
We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out!
Thanks again for the support guys. Make sure to share your experience with the Ti2 Pen on Massdrop.

Hi All,
We placed the order for The Ti2 Pen shortly after the drop ended.
Our vendor will be preparing it for shipment.
The moment we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you guys with updated information.
Expect an update from us on 11/7 or sooner if something comes up.
Cheers!
Darn shame the reasonable priced versions sold out or offered so few. I don't see the value in a double priced for a slightly darker (black) color. PVD finish in the watch industry is usually cheaper than raw metal in production, how is a PVD coating any more special. You don't see PVD black versions of watch models cost 2x the price. Usually it is the same price, or at most a 10-30% additional premium, certainly not 100$ (double). Yes, I know PVD coatings aren't all the same, that said you advertise this one to scratch and form patina over time, so this can't be that special of PVD coating. This is a classics looks premium for fashion, however, for such a supposed utilitarian minded company this line of pricing doesn't make sense.
Also, what is the point of the O rings, to hold the cap in place or do they serve another function?
I will commend you for getting me interested in owning a pen made of brushed titanium. I never thought I'd want a titanium pen before seeing this drop.

Would have liked an original one plus the PVD (if the PVD wasn't 2x the price) :(. I have PVD watches that are close in price to its ss ones. Any reason why the coating costs so much more?
beatstreet
Pretty sure Mike doesn't do the PVD in-house, and the shop who does it charges him a pretty penny. The other colors have always been offered at a sharp markup. I understand they do sell, but you may not be the intended market.
The O-rings indeed are the mechanism for securing the cap in this design.
I would like to join this drop, but am having problems...it won't let me order the original pen with cap (for the option of limited edition, which is a mandatory field, it only offers the black addition with clip and if this option is selected, the price is $119)...also I don't see any place I can select what color bands I want as the extra...please advise
Shermjack
Sherm -- Looks like the originals are sold out. All of the pens for this drop come with an assortment of orings .. Black installed and 4 each of Red, Green, and Blue.

Got it...thanks!
I bought this pen on first release. The ink cartridge leaks like crazy. Can't use it & can't find replacements. Disappointed
Mkay0219
Sorry for your disappointment, but it seems like it stems from lack of information rather than the product. Other readers need to realize how off base the prior comment is.
The cartridge is a Hi-Tec-C, one of the most popular options out there for writing / drafting aficionados. Any pen cartridge has the potential to leak; the Hi-Tec-C is not particularly prone to this problem. I've had a $15 Mont Blanc refill ruin clothing by leaking, but never a Hi-Tec-C. It's distributed as the G-Tec-C in the USA, and is commonly available. There are many sources for refills online and, literally at this very moment, Massdrop has a drop for a set of 10.
My short review: I use mine (original finish w/clip) day-in day-out for clinical notes. Never once has it ruined a suit/shirt by leaking. Replacement cartridges are easily and cheaply available. The 0.3mm is fantastic, my girlfriend loves the second one I got her for lab notes, and I'm getting another for backup. I definitely recommend adding the clip. The Ti finish of the original is very nonreflective and will show the first few marks, but over time burnishes into a very nice stable, uniform, half-matte patina.
My shorter review: This is, without qualification, the best Hi-Tec-C host available for EDC.

Where do you buy your refills from? I used jetpens to get the first couple, but their shipping is almost double the price of a refill. I would love to get some of the less common colors in thinner tip sizes, but I haven't really been able to find retailers who sell them, other than jetpens. Here's hoping you are also in the US.
A friend and I got a two of these pens on the last drop - black and regular. The regular is our favorite by far. The black isn't quite as eye-catching and the ink starts to accumulate near the tip for a messy look. It can happen with the regular one too, but it doesn't look as bad because of the grey tip.

The ink can be wiped off for the most part. It's not overly resistant to water, so get a wet cloth if it doesnt just rub off. I've smeared some ink on the tip of mine several times, and never had any issue getting it off. Both the black ink it came with and the purple ink I primarily use.
Also for those of you that care, you can find appropriately sized o rings in almost any color. I have purple for mine that I bought on ebay for about $2-3.

I would love to be able to get one of the black versions on the next drop.
would like the Louis Edition, looks like i will have to wait for next drop.
Which refill brands are compatible with this pen ?
Grnmo
Hi Tec C/G Tec C and I believe Uni-ball Signo UM-151 should fit as well. See this post for further details http://www.penaddict.com/blog/2012/6/6/ti2-pen-hands-on.html
Was going to join but no black ones is disappointing. Guess I will wait and hope we get a response on why they aren't available any more.
Chris_S
Chris -- We only had a few remaining. We are currently having more coated. It won't be long.
Are only the silver ones available with the current drop?
Skuloth
the other ones were available until today, it seems they ran out of them? quite dissapoiniting that hey ran out of two special colors with so few bought/comitted.
Hey, is it possible to get it with the green O rings that are in the video? And eventually can one change these O-rings himself and where to get the right ones? Btw i ordered one with the last drop already and been having some issues with the ink as well, that it stopped writing randomly, but i guess thats an issue with the pen part and not the housing.
rokzo
Also wondering this, would like to swap out the black o-rings for red, to match my Rotring pencils
Are the ink refills gel based or the regular ink roller ball points?

I've bought several products from Mike Bond who makes this pen and they're all excellent quality, if I hadn't late de bought these on Kickstarter, I'd buy them here! The maker of this Pen does everything in his own shop and never disappoints!
Has anyone had an issue with an ink drop forming due to the o-ring seals? I just received mine and I am having to use a tissue to remove excess ink from the tip. I tested two separate cartridges and get the same result. P.S. I also sent an email to the manufacturer.

I am having the same issue with excess ink, though i can't say if its from the seal...kinda surprised this happened. I paid quite a bit more for the pvd version too.
Kaufebeen
Kaufebeen -- El Rey has swapped out the refill and not having the issue anymore. You can send me a message to cncmikebond@gmail.com and I we can fix you up.
Hello! Just want to check roughly how long til the pen ships to Singapore? I'm guessing roughly 2 weeks from time of shipment? Thanks! =)

Hey everyone, We just got word that our order of the Ti2 Pen has been shipped out. We’ve already alerted our warehouse staff about the shipment, so we should be able to process it and get it shipped back out to you guys within 24 hours of its arrival. Cheers!
@dag they are both from people who put quality first! I've got a number of products from both Mike and Brad and I've never been disappointed by anything these guys make. As a matter of fact I've gotten in the habit of getting at least 2 of anything they make just because it's always top notch! They are completely separate entities but make parts for each other sometimes. I've got some TiPens and I love them! I've also got four Ti2 pawns on the way and can't wait to see them! As far as comparing? Hard to say, both will be great quality, just different styles. Guess the only way to find out is have one of each! :-)

Wish the black wasn't the same price as the pen its self

Vanity will cost you.
For a pen that'll last forever, it was worth it for me.
