I wish more companies made items out of bronze
Dang. Would have got titanium if I'd gotten the email before the last day.
momsafake
I hear you. We put as many as we can on the site and it seems like it's never enough. The titaniam's really don't last more than a day.
I'd be all over this if the Parker-style converter kit was optionally available as part of the drop.
If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times...it sure would be nice if Massdrop would let us know, or at the very least allude to the fact that an item or items in a drop are limited in quantity.
jc78
Agreed. Major fail by MD this time.
Goes to buy Titanium. Titanium is sold out. Saves $79.99.
joelellis
Same
tsweat
Yup me too, That was fast.
With the clip being part of the bolt action, will the clip end up scratching the body as it moves about multiple times a day, day after day?
glennac
There's 0.015" of space between the clip and pen body. This is to prevent the two from making contact and scratching.
Instructions are included with every pen to show the proper use method. Also, go to any pen description page on urbansurvivalgear.net and see the pen actuation GIF.
Titanium sold out fast... wish I would have seen the email notification sooner,

Sorry about that. Titanium always goes quick. Especially when at a discount
UrbanSurvivalGear
It wasn't for me anyway. I bought one direct a few months ago. A friend of mine commented on it and I thought that seeing it at a bit of a discount would give him the push to buy one.
It's a great pen by the way. They sell out fast for good reason.
Anyone know if this is the newer updated version with Ti Torx screws holding in the bolt? Doesn't seem to mention it anywhere.
pentaerythritol
V2 is the newer version, so it should be like in the photos. Also, that is the version with the logo on the clip (like in the photo) rather than the top.
Can't absolutely guarantee it, but if it says V2 it should be the newer one. I have the Ti which I bought direct (not Massdrop) and I love it. Took some work to break it in, but it's a great pen. Expensive and silly, but still amazing. Absolutely not for someone who loses pens though...if someone borrowed this pen and tried to walk off there might be a scene.
pentaerythritol
Yes, these come with the torx screws installed.
How sturdy are the rivets/bolts attaching the clip? I had a bad experience with a chintzier milled pen (*cough* Grafton) where the bolts loosened during the first week of use and eventually the clip just fell off.

Can you provide context of your situation and email? Screws don't fall out; they back out. Did you remove the clip and reinstall? What torque setting did you use when reinstalling?
My appologies, if you did not remove the clip. Perhaps you ordered a previous version. If so which one?
UrbanSurvivalGear
The pen I am referring to was from a previous massdrop order(MD-43856-2112120) In stonewashed Ti. I have never loosened a screw, much less removed the clip. I noticed the screw missing one night when I removed the pen from my pocket and placed it on the shelf whe I keep my pens. as far as the email, “I have a tiscribe titanium pen that one of the screws in the pocket clip has disappeared. If it’s possible could you send me a few extra screws. ....” was sunmitted via the support page on the website. i requested a few because I liked the pen that I received from the massdrop order so much that I bought a different one directly from the website, and wanted another(screw) in case one of the ones from the other pen decided to “back out”.
For anyone who curious about the price it is approximately $9 different from USG website and massdrop.
What was the drop price?
That is rich. I get a mail for this drop. And it's in-active and not only that: comments are 32 weeks old? WTH?
hgoor
I believed the last drop was only for 25 units. When I checked the drop, both the Ti and Cu versions were already sold out and only left the Br version
Akhyar
Still ridiculous
Anybody who joined the V2 drop already received his? Mine still on transit, although shipped out on the 20th. Could be due to the holidays
A Conversion Kit is in the set ?
Mine are for sale. Inside Europe. Have two unused (Just arrived) Ti Stonewashed and Copper. On reddit Troif.

Just got my copper pen today and, while I love the design, the pen itself leaves a little to be desired. My main complaint is that milled hole for the bolt/clip is quite sharp. I don't think that it'll cut me or anything but a slight chamfer or some sanding would have made the action much more comfortable. Maybe this step was skipped in part because of my second complaint which is that the copper (and I assume brass and titanium) is very thin. In comparison to most pens out there this is a non-issue but compared to my other machined pens including a Tactile Turn titanium Glider, Fellhoelter brass deluxe TiBolt, and Karas Kustoms copper "Bolt" the TiScribe-Bolt is considerably thinner and does't have the same heft that I've grown to love. Very nice but could be much better...
Edit: Photo added to show what I mean
Edit 2: Also just realized the copper pen that I got on the drop is on sale straight from Urban Survival Gear for only $70. Total BS, Massdrop.

Soon lol
thedupuisner
I just got mine today and I also agree that the edges of the clip feels a bit sharp, not to the point where it'll cut me, but it's a bit uncomfortable to play with it. I also think that a slight chamfer or rounding of the edges of the clip would make it more comfortable, but that would add extra labor/time/cost to production. There's also a bit of left-right wobble to the clip in comparison to the knob of my Fellhoelter TiBolt which feels more solid and tight by comparison.
And what's with manufacturers putting in the fattest tip refill? My Fellhoelter TiBolt came with a Schmidt EasyFlow 9000 Broad tip (vs Medium) and this TiScribe came with the 1.0mm tip. At least the Pilot G2 refills are cheap so I can try out the Fine (0.7mm) and Extra Fine (0.5mm) tips for minimal cost compared to the Schmidt refills.
That being said, I do like the slimmer size and lighter weight of the TiScribe over the fatter and heavier TiBolt which was the main reason I bought it. Yeah, and the sale price on USG's website, even with Int'l shipping is still $7.25 USD cheaper than what I paid on MD. Plus the Parker-style adapter kit is available on their website whereas it wasn't available as an option on MD.
So the drop ends and the pen goes on sale a few hours later?

Actually, I got the prices mixed up. The Massdrop price was more than the sales price plus shipping on his website. Anyway, I'm planning to get a pen and pencil combo from his next Kickstarter campaign, where the prices will probably be lower than the retail prices he will charge after the campaign ends.

I like the pen and joined for a titanium pen in stonewashed finish. I was shopping around and got this over the Tactile Turn Glider.
It just irks me how there's a sale after the drop ends.
Darn! Missed this drop by what seems to be just a couple hours. @UrbanSurvivalGear do you have any more info on the Aug 1 Drop mentioned by @GreatLifeGear ?

You can get the pen directly at urbansurivalgear.net. It's on sale for $79.99 for the Ti model.
I carry my pen next to my knife in my pocket, is the copper or the titanium less prone to scuffing? Thanks!

Hey Kelvin, Love the pens. Do you ever think you will make a mini version?
moose2638
The pencil comes out next week and we have one more project coming out after that. Maybe January
Any chance we could get a picture of a copper stonewashed from someone? I know that there is an image above and on the TiScribe site, but I was hoping to see one that is in "real time" lol.
Does anyone know if this pen will take the caran d'ache goliath refills? I like them a lot and they are easier to use than the ones in the description

Hi I just checked with the manufacturer, the tip has a 2mm diameter. Does that sound about right or do you need something more precise?
WhySoSerious
No that's fine! It'll work
As an industrial designer and registered *ehem* pen-o-phile... I received my titanium stonewash during Kelvin's kickstarter and it has been an awesome addition to my titanium and black leather edc. 10/10 pen. I do recommend. I thought it was going to be heavy and for sketching that is not the best. This pen's weight feels so freaking good in my hand! The action is still not that smooth as I haven't been playing with it that much (I just received it recently) but like every Buy It For Life product it is only going to get better with time. The clip geometry is perfect. Don't have to worry about it falling out of my pockets. A modern day classic.
KebertXela
Thank you! Glad you like it!
Got this from a backer. Why does everyone take better pictures than me? LOL

UrbanSurvivalGear
Hey, that's my pic! Thanks for posting it, Kelvin! I carried the titanium V1 daily until I got your titanium V2. Now it's my EDC pen. I can't imagine a better EDC pen than these. Perfect diameter and weight and takes my preferred refill, the Pilot G2 .38.
srvctec
Thank you!
$75 for a pen. This is why I don't take this site seriously any more.

Urban Survival Gear is the name of the company; the pen is called the TiScribe - bolt.
You're paying $75 for a limited-production, brass/copper/titanium pen, with a novelty extend/retract mechanism. The "limited-production" part + the cost of the materials + keeping the one guy who runs the show mildly happy (so he has the energy to focus, be creative, and provide customer service) is what you're paying for.
somePurchaser
The $75 part is not directed to you @Chad69
I hope this isn't a silly question. Does the price include two pens or just one? The photos on your web store show two pens in the picture but nothing in the description states that two are included. Just want to make sure before I order mine. Thanks!
niacobelli
Good question! The price is for one pen only. Kelvin
Even robots like the TiScribe-Bolt (Click the Link)!

UrbanSurvivalGear
Ok. Let me look at that. I started backing KSprojects again after 5 years, I think. :D
No Parker Style conversion kit?

On your site i can't check out my order to calculate shipping method. I can't even find email connect on it. That's some issue for me.

This pen is revolutionary. I don't know how a pen could be simpler. I got 3 from Kelvin through his KS project. I got another on a special with no grips on the body in Titanium. I swapped in my preferred refill in and it is the smoothest writing I have had in any pen yet. The pen diameter is so small...hard to believe it could get much smaller. Kelvin backs you up if you have problems. I got a pen in a finish I didn't order, told him about it, and the replacement was out ASAP. Got it in two days along with other needed stuff...and all of this was before I got the wrong item back to him. Thanks Kelvin!
TrashMan
I take care of my backers ;). Thanks bro!
I purchased a Ti UrbanSurvival pen through Kickstarter and although it looks nice, the bolt action is still grinding on mine (Yes, it's been through the motions of oiling and break-in period) Kelvin was kind to send replacement screws for the clip, but how does this stuff get overlooked when quality control was preached throughout the entire production? Lastly, I'm definitely not impressed with the MassDrop price point. I'm not here to kill business for the guy, just giving my two cents. Dont inflate your expectations on this item.

He sure did. How many times did I have to contact him to get my pen to function properly? Answer: 3 Does it now function smoothly? Answer: No I'm speaking from my personal experience. I know quality when I see it and it just wasn't there.
Rastopher
Man, sorry to hear that. That's hard to Believe as what he did for me it's far beyond what I expected and/or deserved. And for a note here: I wasn't even a backer. I saw the pen and ordered it through his website. Try reaching out to him in a friendly email, as I'm sure there's a misunderstanding somewhere. Good luck man.
