It's time to power up the ol' CRT TV, dig your favorite gaming system out of the attic, and blow some dust out of the cartridges. Built once again on both the Side Click and Slim Side Click models our latest Seasonal Release, the 8-Bit, is inspired by early video game consoles with a black and gray matte Cerakote finish, a bright orange clip with a deep-engraved pattern, and a red "reset" button for when you're done jotting down notes or run out of extra lives.
In lieu of the typical metal commemorative card, we decided to have some fun and got custom 8-Bit tokens made by Osborne Coinage, America's oldest private mint who's been making coins, tokens, and more since 1835.
Borrowing from one of the most iconic gaming accessories of all time, we deep engraved a "ray gun" design on the clips before hitting them with orange Cerakote. The result is a subtle, retro look on an otherwise bright accent piece – perfect for staying up late and saving the world.
We added a "RESET" engraving on the pen body in 8-bit font next to the red side click button. Hit it you're done taking notes or run out of lives.
Cerakote is a thin coating of ceramic that's applied to the surface of our titanium pens. It's abrasion, chemical, temperature, and scratch-resistant but not proof. Hard wear will still show on Cerakote but we love that it gives us the ability to put colors on our pens without adding serious weight or thickness.
