Ko-Axis™ Rail Pen by TEC Accessories

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2018-03-09

Enjoy a more natural and elegant writing experience with the Ko-Axis™ Rail Pen by TEC Accessories. A welcome departure from traditional pen design, the Ko-Axis™ simultaneously offers ergonomic comfort and beauty while you write. Its 4.5-inch length provides a fluid writing experience while being compact enough to bring with you every day. It also has a 6mm low-profile body, making it even more convenient to carry and stash in a notebook. The magnetic twin-rail mechanism extends and retracts the ink refill with a satisfying snap, eliminating the need for a separate cap. Furthermore, you can easily replace the ink of the Ko-Axis™ Rail Pen in an instant and without any tools. The pen is available in an ultra-light anodized aluminum version and an indestructible titanium version. The Ko-Axis™ accepts industry standard D1 ink refills and will change the way you feel about your pen.

@Paul Cartee I would buy that book.
Gaf
Just got charged for this, can’t wait for the surveys and to finally receive it
Paul Cartee
I would like to thank @CJ for keeping the mark of the devil off this project. You are our Kickstarter Jesus. As for the twitching and jerking movements mentioned by @Pretentious Preventions, it’s hard to tell if the cause of those maladies are from being treated like any other backer by people who I consider family, or if it’s the effects of multiple blows to the head sustained in the early years of my life while attending Catholic grade schools. Independent (read smart ass) thinking was frowned upon in those institutions. I’m hoping to use this wonderful pen to transcribe those years into a novel that will be both, a therapeutic venture through my childhood and a best seller. The sooner I get this pen, the sooner the healing starts. No pressure.
Eric Griggs
Cannot wait to get my pen, I've been following this campaign for a while and I think these pens look incredible.
TEC Accessories
@Pretentious Preventions : Over the coming weeks, we will continue to release information that will surely make the twitching and those jerking movements even worse...
TEC Accessories
@CJ : I think I can speak for everyone here in expressing our utmost gratitude. Thank you!
Pretentious Preventions
Be on the lookout for twitching and other jerking movements @Paul Cartee. It is a symptom of not getting the first pen.
Pretentious Preventions
@CJ how dare you!
CJ
I couldn’t let this project end at 666% funded. You are all welcome.
Pretentious Preventions
best campaigns
Paul Cartee
Mom, is it Christmas yet? How many more days until I get my pen? No, I'm not looking forward to this at all.
Paul Cartee
LOL
TEC Accessories
@Paul Cartee : Perhaps you have something in your eye? :-)
Paul Cartee
TEC Accessories people, First, I would like to congratulate you on getting 600% of your backing goal. It just goes to show that this pen is a great idea and many other people think likewise. Great job. As for me and @Pretentious Preventions’ unreasonable and selfish request to have our pens sent to us first, we apologize. We understand how you can’t say publicly that you would give us preferential treatment. We get it. If you said you would send our pens first, there could be an uproar and who knows what craziness would ensue. So, we’ll take our rightful place in line, wink, wink, and wait patiently for our pens. We promise to keep it quiet if for some unforeseen reason, our pens arrive a week or two earlier than the rest of your backers because we don’t expect any special treatment whatsoever. Thanks for not sending our pens early, wink, wink.
Roy Rios
The simplicity of the design is genius.
Pretentious Preventions
@TEC thanks for the most recent update.
YEH CHIH CHENG
It's a pity, but thanks for your reply
TEC Accessories
@YEH CHIC CHENG : We do have the ability to do laser engraving, but we have not offered this as an option due to the added setup/production labor and tooling cost for this process. We are very much trying to focus on delivering this new product to our backers on schedule, and are trying to avoid any process that will cause delays from our published timeline.
YEH CHIH CHENG
I support a metal razor. The founder provided laser engraving in order to enhance the product's personalization. Do you have such considerations? Apart from the optional accessories, this is also a personal representative.
Pretentious Preventions
I DEMAND that @Paul gets the first pen. Don't make me double my pledge you animals...
Pretentious Preventions
@Paul Cartee we will stand together. Maybe 2nd and 3rd pens would work? OR they can send us solid gold with diamonds inlayed for us to make up for us not being first?
TEC Accessories
@Roy Rios : The design is complete and has been submitted for price quotes this morning. If it looks feasible from a cost standpoint, I'll post the CAD image. Otherwise, I don't want to post a product image we will not produce. I hope to know by early next week(?)
Roy Rios
Could you guys make a cad of the stand?
Paul Cartee
Pretentious Preventions, thanks for having my back. It’s people like you that make this world and the internet a better place. I applaud the solidarity not often displayed in these times. However, this campaign and the internet needs people like you, so please, don’t quit either. You my friend, are a hero standing up for the little man (me) where most would simply step on him while staring at their phone as they mindlessly walk through life. Instead of quitting, let’s become allies in my perusal of unreasonable requests from this campaign. I don’t know about you, but I am unencumbered by logic and common sense. Together, with undying determination and no reference for what is fair or reasonable, we can lobby this campaign for the ridiculous, for the outrageous, for the unrealistic, and maybe, just maybe, we’ll entertain one or two people, and if we’re lucky, still get our pens. We are an army of two and I suspect we are growing!
TEC Accessories
@Andrew : In order to minimize confusion, the pocket clip will come standard with the pen. If you want the key ring hook, you will need to purchase it separately. It will come with 2 screws, and most likely small hex wrenches to swap out the part (the 2 screw styles are different and will likely require 2 different wrench sizes). But they will be entirely interchangeable so you can swap them out anytime. We are also trying to keep accessories like this VERY affordable, but we have not established pricing yet. But you will have the chance to get them at a special Kickstarter discount as well!
Andrew
If I were to opt in for the key ring hook add-on, is that a separate piece or does it replace the standard clip? Can they be swapped after the fact?
TEC Accessories
@Pretentious Preventions : Oh wow, what a can of worms! We may have to give everyone the first pen...
All I can say is that we are diligently working on the schedule to make sure we get these assembled as fast as humanly possible, we want you all to have them! Your feedback is important, so the sooner we ship them the sooner we will hear back from you.
Pretentious Preventions
@TEC Accessories I am #255 I would love to give him the first pen. If you don't I will totally unback and quit the internet forever. Please, send his pen first.
TEC Accessories
@Paul Cartee : Ha, well if for any other reason it would be for the good laugh you provided. But you know, if you can refer one or two hundred additional pledges I will see what we can do!
Paul Cartee
OK, OK, so you can't make my pen first, I get that. I have another request. I'm backer 239, practically number 1, if not for the other 238 miscreants who jump in line ahead of me. With that kind of status, and taking into account our long ties in business, going back what, a few weeks now, we're the next best thing to family, you should seriously consider sending out my pen first, if not before that. Do me a solid, thanks. ,--.--._

Very excited about the possibility of stainless steel sliders! Really hope you can do this one!
TEC Accessories
@Roy Rios : Like many other things, it's on the list :-)
Roy Rios
I recall you guys have a YouTube channel right? Did you guys ever considered making a series videos of all the stuff you’re doing? Cause that be pretty cool.
TEC Accessories
@Tyler Rufo : No worries. But we were thinking about it, just discussing all the options amongst the mayhem. BTW, we received the material yesterday, hoping to post an update with a pic today!
Tyler Rufo
@TEC Accessories Thanks for the response. I was actually the first to pledge for the Timascus so it was more of a joke. The second I saw the design I knew I had to have it; I'm a sucker for Damascus and titanium in general so why not have both =). Anyway, love the project and hope to see more cool stuff (more Timascus?) in the future.
Roy Rios
Awesome! I wish you guys luck then!
TEC Accessories
@Roy Rios : We will accommodate both materials where applicable!
Roy Rios
Will accessories be made of aluminum and titanium or only one of them? Cause personally I prefer titanium
TEC Accessories
@Roy Rios : Yes, we will have additional accessories and parts available on our site. You will have the option to purchase them at a Kickstarter discount and we can include them in your shipment with your reward(s). I will be releasing specific info on what will be available soon!
Roy Rios
I was wondering once finish the campaign will you guys sell the extra parts in your website?
TEC Accessories
@Bill R Pedler : I like your notes!
Bill R Pedler
Note to self: Stealth Titanium x1, Aluminum Ko-Axis rail x2 (Red & Blue)
TEC Accessories
@Tyler Rufo : We discussed this internally, and are still considering it but not making any promises. But unfortunately #1 and #2 are already taken. First come, first serve :-(
Tyler Rufo
Just out of curiosity, are the Timascus ones going to be individually numbered? (P.s. I'll take pen number 1 if it's up for grabs.)
Eric Bette
@creator Fair enough, best of luck on your KS campaign!
TEC Accessories
@Eric Bette : Hello fellow Tusconian! Yes, perhaps we should bring more attention to that fact. We love to support our community, and as part of that we also employ a number of Veterans. However we believe quality can be achieved regardless of geographical location, just as can poor quality. That is why we focus on strict quality standards for both parts and properly trained personnel to ensure we can compete in this worldwide marketplace. And thanks for your support!
Eric Bette
Stunningly-designed product made in my home town? This is a no-brainer for me to back. @creator I recommend that you highlight the "Made in USA" aspect of this project more prominently. I actively search for USA-made products, both for their (generally) higher quality and the chance to support domestic workers and industries. With so many Kickstarter projects manufactured overseas, drawing attention to the fact that you design and build these beautiful pens in the USA can only help your sales.
Paul Cartee
LOL, I guess I'll wait then.
TEC Accessories
@Paul Cartee WELL, perhaps if it is one of the Titanium Damascus versions... ;-)
Paul Cartee
I have one request.
Make my pen first. Thanks ;~) .--.___.----.___.--._
