NEW Titanium “Click” Pen

Yes, the rumors are true…

The titanium “click” pen I’ve been working on is finally launching.

Here’s a little sneak preview of the pen (before it goes live on Kickstarter in a couple of days):





Before I continue…

You need to know that this click-style pen is different to most (and possibly ALL) other click pens.

While there have been titanium click pens before — hell, I’ve bought a few in my time — this is probably the first click pen that is 100% Grade 5 Titanium. Yes, you got it, there is not a single plastic part to be found on the pen.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “But Magnus, what about the spring, surely THAT has got to be a steel spring?”

Sorry to disappoint – but even the spring is a precision cnc-machined component that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before (I won’t reveal the spring yet …but I promise you’re going to love it).

Here’s the other cool thing…

I’ve designed this pen to look virtually identical the Titanium Mechanical Pencil I made last year – take a look:



Oh, one more thing:

The pen will use only one type of refill… Fisher Space Pen. Yes, this is the refill that can write upside down, underwater, in ultra-low temperatures and ultra-high temperatures.

In other words, this combination of the Fisher refill and the 100% Titanium pen creates a pen that is built to handle anything and everything you can throw at it. From writing at the top of Mount Everest …all the way down to bottom of the seabed …this pen going to function.

And here’s the crazy thing – it does it without looking “rugged” or “clucky”. It’s still a minimalist and ultra-elegant pen you can take to business meetings.

Any comments? I’d love to hear them.

P.S. This will be launching on Kickstarter in the next couple of days

  • Dennis says:

    This is an amazing ideas. Looking forward to picking it up.

  • Mark says:

    Magnus, this is nice mate….. πŸ™‚

  • anael says:

    Any plan to made one with Montblanc refill?

    • Jon says:

      +1 I would be all over a pen like that. Even more so if it were compatible with the fineliner

    • EdgeScience says:

      Fineliner needs a cap or it will dry out. Montblanc, too expensive for what you get (offers nothing over the G2 other than the screw in capability). Then there is the Space Pen. Fisher refills do not offer a quality writing experience in my opinion. They are popular with some and that’s fine, but the Pilot G2 refill is the best in many areas. Variety of colors, tips sizes (.38, .5, .7 and BOLD 1.0) Not to dmention they are widely available and cheap at about $1-$2 each. Magnus, I dig your style and like the look of this pen but I’m going to have to wait for a rollerball, G2 compatible version as writing performance is just too important for me personally. Thanks for doing what you do.

  • Verm says:

    I love ALMOST everything about it. However the Fisher Space Pen refill isn’t doing it for me. I have a few over the years they did write great. In recent years the quality of the refill has diminished. Also the lack of anything below “fine” point is a problem. It’s just not fine enough.

    Still, I appreciate the craftsmanship that went into this and I might grab a pencil myself.

  • Michael says:

    This looks amazing. But, I’m a die-hard fan of G2. Months ago, I bought a titanium pen that accepts G2 refills, and it works great! If there’s anyway to make that work with this pen… backed/sold!

  • Lonn says:

    The pencil has a great form factor. Don’t love the fisher cartridge. Any chance for a spacer to fit the Schmidt Megaline 4867?

  • Eric says:

    I’m not a huge fan of the space pen refill. Sure it can write in a lot of environments, but it’s not exactly a beautiful elegant writing cartridge, even the fine tipped ones I’ve tried. Maybe it’s my altitude or something that makes them write poorly. I personally am a bigger fan of the fine tipped G2 or Hi-Tec-C cartridge. That won’t stop me from trying to get one though I’m sure. I would looooove to see and hear the mechanism. I hope it’s not all sealed up and impossible to get a look at in the finished product

  • Frank Becker says:

    Hi Magnus, i like your Idee from the Click Pen and I hope if you Made them it is not to extensive. I wait for the result. Tanks Frank from Germany

  • Ryan says:


    I have to agree. I can’t go back to anything but a gel these days. I wish Pilot made all of it’s Frixion gel erasable refills available in America. Sadly I have to import my .38 Frixion refills from Japan.

    My requirements are a gel at a .5mm minimum!

  • Adam says:

    I must be the only person here that loves the fisher space pen refills!
    I hated the Mont Blanc type that fitted the first pen, I realise I’m in the minority here but I’m so glad it takes fisher refills.

  • Brant says:

    You had me until Fisher…..

  • John says:

    Dude cant wait for the Kickstarter…AGAIN :D! Like that its the space pen refills!!!!!! #titaniumpen

  • Greg says:

    Looking forward to getting one or three

  • Kelvin says:

    Mate, this is primo. What makes it better than primo or a fisher refill is to have a metal like piece of extender to accommodate certain lengths of refills making it adaptable to many refills. Of course there is always a limitation for certain types of refills e.g. broad or too short refills etc. I know you like impossibly high standards, perhaps a challenge then?

  • J. C. de Oliveira says:

    You may wish to have a look at a Ti pen that accepts pretty much any cartridge you can think off. That was a clever design that was recently ok KS. Maybe you can work in a design in those lines? I got that pen (and the previous one from the same individual) and they are by far the best Ti pens available. I do have your previous “mont blanc” pen as well, but I dislike it dearly. BTW, mine rattles quite a bit with the mont blank cartridge. The click pen design looks interesting though.

    • Brant says:

      I bought a Ti Click. Yes, they were titanium on the outside but they were full of cheap Chinese junk in the click mechanism and the brass thread that held the clicker on only engaged by two threads. All up it was a cheap junk pen. I am hoping this one does not use a Chinese click mechanism hidden inside.

  • Hussein Al-Sahlan says:

    This looks great, amazing job as usual Magnus. One thing though, it would be nice to know roughly the dimensions. But i’m guessing since it uses a fisher space pen refill, it would be a EDC sized pen and not one of those long street lamp sized ones.

  • Lorenz says:

    Hello Magnus
    I love the previous pen and pencil, but this new pen is just what I was looking for πŸ™‚
    I never really liked the Fisher Space Pen :-/
    Could you please find a way to use montblancrefills, too?
    Thank you for many more great Ti products!
    Best wishes from Switzerland, Lorenz

  • scott says:

    No Fisher refill, please! Gel refills would be my preference. No one cares about writing underwater or upside down. I care most about a very fine, clean line. Any way to make the pen so it accommodate different refills? The Montblancs are also way too broad tipped.

  • Michael says:

    I agree with not wanting a “clucky” pen!

  • ian says:

    Please please make it work the parker style refills

  • Evert says:

    Looking forward to ordering one! πŸ™‚

  • William H says:

    I loved everything about the pen except the refill choice. I, personally, don’t like fisher space pen. Any chance there’s another refill type that would work? Would love to see this with a montblanc or pilot g2 refill.

  • David says:

    I guess I am also in the minority here, I do like the Fisher Space Pen. Sometimes I am writing outside in the rain or very cold weather and at odd angles. Since it looks so much like the pencil, any change you can anodize the click tip so when the pen and pencil are together I tell them apart easier? Especially if I get a couple of your possible pen holders and use one for a pencil as well.

  • Hugo says:

    I’d buy one of these if you’d designed it for a nice refill (G2, Montblanc etc), rather than the Fisher. Space Pens are fine, but they don’t feel any better to write with than a $1 biro…

  • Anson says:

    Fisher refil is a deal-breaker… never used one that has been satisfactory ;(

  • Jim says:

    G2 for me as well. Would get a matching pen for each of my pencils but need the blue ink and tip of a G2 refill. For work. Please reconsider the option.

  • DON says:

    Was on board too until I saw Fisher. Pass. Looks great, however.

  • Aras says:

    Hopefully, there will be a pledge-level with both the new pen and pencil? They really match each other πŸ˜‰

  • Blane says:

    I concur… G2! I would have never known how awesome they are until I noticed so many Micro Pen Manufacturers utilizing them. I actually enjoy writing again… Whod’a Thunk?

    It is a darn sexy pen!!! Take it one more step Bud!

  • Michael Jaycox says:

    I truly love the original (One Pen) and pencil. My only problem was making sure I didn’t loose the cap when writing in the field. This click pen will be an amazing addition to the original two. I am definitely in on this one.

  • Abang Din says:

    Fisher Space pen? Please no. I understand that Montblanc refills aren’t suitable for clicky pens, but I never have the need to write underwater or upside down.

  • Adam Schwartzberg says:

    Yes please…

  • Jeff Flowers says:

    Didn’t realize the great debate on the type of refills people like/don’t like.

    Perhaps have a google survey or sheet to see the fav?

  • S.Dahl says:

    MATE. KEEP THE ?? ??

  • Michael says:

    I like it. I can’t wait to see more. I would ask for one thing however. Put something on the pen so I can differentiate the pen from the pencil when they are both in my pocket. This could be an engraving on the top of the button, a groove in the pocket clip…something so it’s easy to figure out which is which…It would be nice if it was both visual and tactile.

    I’m a fan of the Fisher Space Pen refills…thank you.

  • Evan says:

    I want to love the fisher space pen refill and have a space pen but I’ve just not had a good experience. It’s not smooth writing and the ink doesn’t have much depth to the color.

  • Evan says:

    Pen design looks great though!

  • Richard says:

    I have to chime in, one more for the G2 refill! I have used (and hated) Space Pen refills for about 4 years in a titanium EDC pen. Yes, they may write in many unusual situations, but the writing looks terrible. I’m afraid the refill is a deal breaker, but the pen looks brilliant.

  • Luis says:

    Love the idea! I have The One- my EDC, a bit bummed to see it’s a Fisher refill- if it were a MB ballpoint I would say, “Shut up and take my money!!!”

  • Konrad says:

    Agree with the sentiment pertaining to refill.
    Sadly I will wait for a gel refill as I am also not enamoured of the fisher performance.

  • Joe Turner says:

    I understand the choice of the Fisher refill, except your other pen uses Montblanc (which I’ve already got), so I expected this to use the same…

  • BuyingCogentAgain says:

    Darn, I was hoping I could skip the next Cogent product. I’ve bought so many, I really need to slow down. Unfortunately now that you’ve chosen to use the Fisher Space Pen refill, I’m going to have to buy at least one of these titanium click pens. Maybe I’ll buy a couple extra to give as presents to very special pens. I never bought the mechanical pencil, so I won’t have trouble confusing one for the other. Ugh, my wallet isn’t going to be happy…

  • Jon says:

    I have your prior pen (love it) and would really like one of these, but I’m with several others in not being a fan of the Fisher space pen (that puts it in the maybe, instead of definitely buy, category). Frixion would be fantastic, but many other good choices. Was really hoping it was going to say Montblanc so I could use the same refills as my other pen.

  • Michelle says:

    Love the idea of a click pen to match my mechanical pencil! But I need a fine point & would pass if it’s a Fisher refill. And don’t Mont Blanc refills dry out too quickly without a cap? Choose G2 instead, which allows for Schmidt Megaline P950M pressurised refills for Space Pen capabilities. Refills are key. How about a survey to find out? Keeping my fingers crossed….

  • Paul Sandhu says:

    It’s awesome!

    Well done Magnus

    Beautiful workmanship and design – another great cogent creation.

    Must have one. I like the fisher refill. Maybe the Parker which the fisher can fit in might satisfy most?

  • Clement says:

    It looks really nice, if not for the Fisher space pen refill …
    If you can fit in a Parker or G2 refill, it would be nice.

  • Rob Erlick says:

    Count me in!


    Red, Black and Blue wish it was compatible with G2, I do.
    That said, Magnus of Cogent designs, creates, makes and “Lifetime Guarantees” TITANIUM products of outstanding quality, fit and finish which is good enough for me. This “Early Bird wants y’all to know, When this KS projects a “GO” regardless of the refill being Fischer Space or G2,

    Exceptionally Satisfied Backer,
    Adam “Three Screens”

  • Nicolas says:

    Sweet! I love the pencil and together with the clicky will make a great set. Just the Fisher refill is a misser to me. When this would accommodate a parker style filling, the pen would offer the largest choice in fillings and even fit a Fisher refill. The G2 route would also allow to use MB. Wouldn’t it be possible to have a wider range of fillings that can be used?

  • Jake says:

    G2 would be a fine choice if you want a office pen, used by people who never get out of their seat.

    What about a refill to be used in a variety of jobs and places?

  • Tomas says:

    Don’t listen to the detractors, the space pen refill is the only type of pen I use for the same reason I love titanium. It always works when I need it. Please don’t scrap your existing plans.

  • David says:

    1. space refill premium fine point
    2. Mont blanc fine point
    3. whatever

  • Jerry Welch says:

    The Parker “G2” is a good one, use it.

  • Jon says:

    Maagnus, it would be criminal if you didn’t try a Lamy M66 Rollerball Cartridge. I’ve had at least one for over 20 years, and it is without a doubt the best writing pen in the world. When considering your impossibly high standards, I’d think it’s the only one that fits. They are available from the company website: Cheers!

  • O Guy says:

    I hope optional without the pen clip.

  • Brian Fawcett says:


    The Ti pen you made last time (with cap) was very good…… or two with a slightly rattly cap but good nonetheless. My gripe is that it was more of a Lady’s pen. Too slim for me so I think I will give this one a miss Mate. Sorry

  • Mike says:

    +1 on G2. Nothing but gel for me.

  • Robert Ferguson says:

    Magnus, I bought 3 of your “The Pens”. I have a few Fisher Space Pens, but my pen refill of choice is the Cross. I have been using them for over 45 years. After much thought, I have decided that I don’t need another pen. I have way too many. Ballpoints, rollerballs, and fountain pens. If, however, you would make the new Ti pen to accommodate the Cross refill, then I would definitely buy one.

  • Tommy Buchanan says:

    Looks great! Haven’t purchased a Mag product in a while but I’m looking forward to this one. As far as the refills go, I do prefer writing with the Parker style refill but normally a pen with a Fisher refill can be a bit shorter. If the overall pen length could be significantly shorter with the Fisher refill then it would get my vote. If the length would be the same I’d go with the Parker. Maybe design one for each? Might just be a matter of making the barrel shorter. If so… Sign me up for one of each.

  • Victor Gaenzel III says:

    G2 IS EASILY BOUGHT AT ANY WALMART or office store in the USA. I have gone to both the G2 and SCHMIDT 888. The G2 is about .01 longer and i have to drill a little out of the barrels. and drill about .2 deeper into the nib area to accommodate the longer and wider plastic ink housing at the tip. These are approximates as i am not at my solid works computer. I am lazy and just drill the .250 the same depth. Its the only pen OD I use to place the nib appropriatly.

  • Vince says:

    Not a fan of the Fischer refill. I keep one in the car for emergencies because it will always write in hot or cold conditions, but the preference is for G2 or Uniball Jetstream.

    Per the video question, the G2 favorite is the following:

  • Wayne says:

    Gel rollerball refills for pens like the Pilot G2 are great for pens that live on desks and only write on clean paper sitting on horizontal surfaces. No one needs a titanium pen for that. The G2 refill belongs in the plastic, ninety-cent G2 clicky it comes in. I buy them by the dozen and keep them in my desk drawer. My EDC pen gets used on vertical surfaces, on paper that has been exposed to moisture or grease, on wood, on plastic, in hundred degree summer heat, and in sub-freezing winter heat. It’s Fisher or nothing for me.

  • Craig Byron says:

    +1 for keeping it Space Pen compatible – I too dont use my pens at home they are for field work on dirty surfaces. Magnus – can the Space Pen still fit as well as the Parker style with maybe some sort of extension to fit the other style?

  • Gagan says:

    Looks great. What are the dimensions of the pen?

  • Karl says:

    Fisher hands down. I don’t want or need smears. ALL water-based ink refills do smear, even when given a chnace to dry thoroughly. If you doubt me, raed your outside notes after a rain when using water-based inks. I expect this to be a rugged pen and function appropriately.

  • Frank says:

    Another vote for the MontBlanc refill. Quality, my man, stick with quality! Oh, and by the way, widely available!

  • Mike says:

    How’s the new click pen coming along bro?
    I don’t have a lot of writing time with the space pen. I hear they are nice. I know MontBlanc is a quality product I hope they offer a Bold…1.4 type Bold ball point.


  • Ben says:

    Please, I implore you, go with a Parker style refill. They are common as dirt, and many people make many different refills in that form factor.

    You can still use a Space Pen refill, with the Parker adapter that comes in the blister pack with the refill.

  • Mike Tesznar says:

    Was wondering how this is going? Cant wait to get mine!

  • Cristian says:

    Still no news about the pen? And the pre orders? πŸ™

  • Michael BARNES says:

    It’s now November. I quess the “click pen” didn’t ship.
