How OUR PENs ARE MADE

STEP 1

Cut each piece out of a solid block of metal

First the cone and the body are cut out of a solid block of premium metal independently. This gives us the overall shape of the pen and parts we can now work with.

STEP 2

Assemble the pen

Once we have the cone and the body, we thread each of them to screw the solid pieces of premium metal together. The fit is already impressively snug, for most manufacturers this would be “good enough.” But, for Modern Fuel, we want to ensure the pen is flawless.

STEP 3

FINISHING ON THE CNC SWISS LATHE

With the full pen assembled, we run the piece through the lathe at an extremely high speed. This gives the metal a smooth finish and mates the cone and body so they appear as a single unit. This process results in a pen that is completely unique. No cone will perfectly fit the body like the two mated together in the production process.

STEP 4

Finish the one-of-a-kind product

Finally, the pen has its custom interior parts that fit the body perfectly added and tightened. Then, your unique pen is hand-finished, inspected to exacting standards, given a serial number, and packaged up.

MEET THE METALS

BRONZE

Luxury watch grade bronze

Bronze has long been used as a durable metal for ship fittings and diving equipment. We’re the only pen out there that uses a solid piece of C52100 bronze, a high quality bronze often reserved for high-end luxury watches. Bronze has a significant weight to it, the user can truly feel the stable balance and all-metal construction. The bronze pen will have a matte patina over time as it ages. Choose bronze if you’re looking for a softer metal that ages with character offers an antique feel.

COPPER

VINTAGE HEIRLOOM FEEL

Copper has a distinct look and feel that ages with character. Often used for high end home finishings like faucets. Copper is a softer metal that will embody it’s usage and patina over time. For the discerning user looking for a pen with heft, copper is our heaviest pen. Choose copper if you’re looking for a distinct metal with heft that ages with the user for a beautiful antique heirloom piece.

STAINLESS STEEL

SLEEK, LOW-MAINTENANCE ELEGANCE

Stainless steel is a hard metal with excellent resistance to corrosion. It is one of the most common metals used in luxury watches for a highly practical clean, sleek look. The pen is heavy enough to feel the heft of quality, but not too heavy. It will not dull or patina over time, leaving you with the same pristine pen for decades to come. Choose stainless steel if you want a moderately heavy pen that will look as good as new in 50 years.

TITANIUM

Unparalleled strength

Titanium is as hard as steel and 45% lighter. Unaffected by fatigue, cracking, aging, or corrosion. Titanium is trusted for the toughest jobs on the planet, including use inside jet engines. The titanium pen is the lightest pen by far. Choose titanium if you want a light, nearly indestructible pen that will withstand even the harshest conditions and still look brand new.

FAQ

What are the dimensions of The Pen?

Length: 140 mm

Diameter: 9.5 mm

What is the diameter of the pen tip?

Our pen uses a Fisher Space Pen medium point pressurized cartridge that's 1.1mm in diameter at the tip. This is a medium weight, not fine or heavy.

Is The Pen heavy?

Yes, all the pens have a reasonable heft to them as they are made out of solid metal. Titanium is by far the lightest pen if you’re looking for a lightweight pen for longer writing sessions.


Below are the weights per metal:

Bronze - 48g (1.7 oz)

Copper - 48g (1.7 oz)

Stainless Steel - 44g (1.6 oz)

Titanium - 28g (.99 oz) 

Where do I get refills for the ink?

The pen uses Fisher Space pen refills, it is a Parker G2 style refill. They can be purchased anywhere. The pen does not take a Pilot G2 refill.

What does patina mean?

Patina is the process of a metal reacting to oxygenation and showing its age. Typically it comes in a green/brown coloration for both Bronze and Copper. The natural process gives your pencil an aged or heirloom look and feel to it. Most customers like the distinguished look, however, if desired you may remove the patina by wiping with a salt and vinegar solution.

How long does it take for the Bronze or Copper pen to patina?

The process of patina can vary dramatically depending the elements the pencil is exposed to. However, generally speaking, the pencil will begin to show patina within a year and may take several years to develop a more mature patina look.

Can I get rid of the patina if I don’t want it?

Most customers like the distinguished look, however, if desired you may remove the patina by wiping with a salt and vinegar solution.

Is the pen slippy without a grip? 

The pen has a smooth finish, but is not slippery to grip. The surface finish and weight of the pen means you need less grip to hold it resulting in a more relaxed grip. 

Which material is best for long periods of writing? 

Titanium is lightest and customers often find that most comfortable for longer periods of writing.

What’s Andrew's favorite material?

This is like making a father choose his favorite child. However, if forced to choose, Andrew does like the bronze and the titanium.

What grade of Ti (nickel content because of a nickel allergy)?

We use Ti-6Al-4V (Grade 5).

What grade of stainless steel do you use? 

We use SS303.

What grade of copper do you use? 

We use CU145.

What grade of bronze do you use? 

We use C52100.

What other type of refills fit the pen?

It is designed to take any G2 Parker style refill. The Parker Quink Gel 0.7 refill or Itoya gel Aquaroller refill are the most popular none ballpoint refills.

What happens if I break it? 

Our 100 year guarantee covers all craftsmanship and materials. If the pencil breaks for any reason under normal use, we will happily fix or replace it.

Why is it so expensive? 

The largest driver of price is simply the extremely high quality materials used in the pencil. Instead of cheap plastic parts in the interior, we have a custom metal mechanism that will withstand the use of millions of cycles. The exterior of the pencil is made out of solid premium metals.


Lastly, the process we use to mate the body and cone is an additional, somewhat laborious process.


In short, attention to detail and quality materials are unfortunately expensive. We believe the quality and life of the pencil more than makes up for the cost.
