Machine Era Markup | Stainless



After years of getting requests about putting a clip on our Original Machine Era Pen, we’ve finally come up with a solution worthy of this well-known design.

Originally released in 2015, the Machine Era Original Brass quickly became our most popular item.

We’ve decided to clean up some lines, dial in some finishing work, add a 3D machined pocket to hold the well made (in USA) extra flexible clip in place, and actually laser engrave our logo so you know it’s the real deal- It’s inspired quite a few copies.

Adding a 3D machined clip holding pocket doubles production time, but securely holds the made in USA extra flexible spring steel clip- no spinning, scratching the body, or coming loose. 

The Machine Era Markup comes pre-loaded with a felt tip Fineliner by Schmidt. We fell in love with this new ink, and thought it worked perfectly with this design. But don’t worry, if that’s not your thing, it still fits standard Pilot g2 cartridges. The internals are the same as our Original. 100% machined. No springs or any other moving parts. 


The 1.0mm Schmidt 6040 Fineliner is a Reservoir based refill with a spring loaded felt tip. For those of you who aren't familiar with fineliners- it writes like well flowing (non-permanent) marker.

"If you're going to carry something everyday, it should be well crafted and reliable"


Originally formed in 2013, our two man team (Ryan & Adam) are designers, innovators, craftsmen, machinists, and a few other things. That gives us a unique ability to bring products from concept to completion- a process we are obsessive about. We're dedicated to crafting the highest quality machined everyday carry items.

By using Swiss-type turning techniques, we're able to deliver parts that are extremely accurate with the best possible surface finish. We operate in tolerances usually reserved for medical and aerospace industries.


This method gives us the ability to add features, and control product weight/balance in ways not possible with other methods.
