About this project
The birth of an idea -
Wallet, a pen, a knife and my phone. 4 things I never leave the house without but I have never been thoroughly pleased with the design or interface of any of the items readily available. I began solving this dilemma by redesigning or modifying each, one by one.
First was my wallet, you can find out more here. (I am just wrapping up Version 2 of this and it will soon be available in more colors and increased capacity.)
Second, was the knife. (originally designed by James. I took the project over, tweaked it bit and went to production).
Third, is the pen, which brings us here!
One day while assembling a batch of uFlick knives for shipment, my Smith and Wesson pen that I carried was laying next to one of the uFlick knife blades and it struck me that these two items need to be combined into a sleek package and thus the Utility Pen project began!
More than just the perfect pen.
The Utility Pen also includes a replaceable blade knife to truly make it the best in EDC gear. Machined from solid 6061 aluminum and then anodized in 1 of our 7 vibrant colors, the Utility Pen is sure to stand out. The included Parker Gel Medium point refill is a pleasure to write with and easily replaceable. The Utility Pen accepts all Parker style refills as well as Fisher Space Pen refills, all available at your local office supply, on Amazon or directly through Wastük Supply Company.
The opposite end is what sets the Wastük Utility Pen apart from the rest. Included is a #11 utility X-acto style utility blade making your pen a very useful tool for hobbyists, shipping clerks, craft workers, makers and artisans. The list could go on forever!
Any of the 1/4" shank blades will fit our holder but the blade must be under 1 7/8" for the cap to fit.
The Utility Pen is 6" long, 1/2" diameter. Caps are 2" and interchangeable from end to end. Weight is just 1.4 oounces. After machining, we tumble the components in ceramic media, clean, and anodize in one of the 7 available colors shown below. Additionally, We are offering these in fully machined brass and copper.
