A premium ballpoint pen that doubles as a precision screwdriver set. Alt pen is designed to be a tool you can carry and use everywhere you go. The goal of this project is to equip you for whatever life might throw at you.
It's all about the details. Every centimeter of Alt pen's design has been considered. A mono-knurl is introduced, providing a tactile grip that is both ideal for writing and fastening screws. The diamond cut chamfers elevate the premium aesthetic.
Premium + ultra premium
The Alt pen will be available in 2 stunning options: A beautiful satin-finished Aluminum body design featuring our mono-knurl grip, and a mirror polished stainless steel for an even higher end product for those who desire it.
Alt pen’s patent pending design features a front loaded D1 ink refill held in place by a proprietary magnetic ink retention system made possible by the “pen bit.”
The pen bit and ink refill can be swapped for multiple precision tool bits. Alt pen uses standard precision tool bits so users can utilize their existing precision tool bits.
The bottom storage holds up to 4 precision tool bits. The rear magnetic compression cap allows the tool bits to be easily removed. The bottom cap also suppresses the tool bits to eliminate rattling noises; this gives a premium user experience that most similar tools cannot provide.
Alt pen ships with a premium box that doubles as a tool case to store Alt pen, extra D1 ink refills, and the 8 precision tool bits
The perfect addition to your everyday carry.
