The designers at Eighty Eight Industry have returned once again to Kickstarter to launch their second generation Stealth Pen which is now available to back with early bird pledges available from $68 or roughly £51. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the unique design of the Stealth Pen V2, which will start shipping out tobaccos during August 2019 if everything progresses smoothly.
“We are back after popular demand to create the next version of the Stealth pen. As some of you might know we don’t design basic products. We treat our designs like art, pushing the boundaries of what is possible. The Stealth pen project was created out of my own needs to create a pen that could reduce fatigue when I was sketching for long periods of time. The unique tear drop shape of the pen was inspired by airfoil profile of a wing. It took us over 300 hundred sketches and 20 different physical prototypes to get the perfect shape. “
A wide aerodynamic provides unique ergonomics according to its designers thanks to the larger surface area when compared to standard cylindrical writing utensils. The wider surface provides more comfortable ways to hold and grip the pen and the slotted design reduces the pens wait as well as providing easy access to see the internal ink cartridge.
