Pick a Pen Series: The Tech Force Pen by Josh Wilson

My name is Josh Wilson and I am the creator of the Tech Force Pen. I have always been a design minded person and often find myself daydreaming about different ways to combine popular tools and products into each other. I use pens and rulers in my job and in my free time and the idea of marrying two common instruments seemed natural to me. With the help of a few friends in manufacturing my idea was made reality with the help of kickstarter. The Tech Force Pen was born.

The Tech Force Pen is housed in a sleeve that is etched with metric and imperial ruler indications. Both pen and sleeve are made of aircraft grade aluminium and are manufactured using a cnc lathe and mill. The ruler indications are then etched on using a CO2 laser. The Tech Force Pen is a solid housing for the HI-Tec C Ink Cartridge which is noteworthy for its ink composition and tip design and has been proved very popular among architects and designers.

Pen and sleeve are sold as a set and are available in brushed aluminium or black anodized. The set comes with 3 sizes of Hi-Tec C ink cartridges, 3mm, 4mm and 25mm.
It took me roughly a year to bring this pen idea from conception to reality and I am ecstatic that I have the opportunity to offer this to the wider public.
