Choices, choices...

Hello everyone, Brian here... I get a lot of questions about the Spoke Model 3... with so many configuration possibilities, some people just can't decide what to order.  When people reach out to me, I tell them the solution is simple... order several different ones;) But seriously, the whole goal with the model 3 was to give people a chance to customize a pencil to their liking... Lead Size... this is pretty straightforward... if you like thin lines and aren't overly heavy handed... go with the .5mm.  If you on the other end... go .9mm.  If you're not sure... then go right in the middle with the .7mm.  Overall, orders are pretty evenly split between the 3 sizes... there's really no 'most popular' selection. Grip Diameter... I provide 2 options with the diameter of the grips.  The 8.3 diameter is slightly more popular.  This size is about the same diameter as a standard Bic stick pen... so go find one of those and see if you like that size... or would like something a bit larger.  The larger size is 9.2mm... and while 0.9mm on a diameter sounds like a minimal difference... it's actually quite noticeable.  Both sizes have machined lines to give a bit more tactile grip.  The grip size works in combination with... Grip Material... there are multiple choices here.  Beyond the obvious appearance differences, the grip material plays a huge role in how the pencil feels from a balance standpoint.  From light to heavy... (Lighter) Aluminum Grip ->Titanium Grip-> Stainless Steel Grip-> Brass Grip (Heavier) If you like the lightest overall weight... go with an aluminum grip.  If you like a 'tip heavy' pencil... go brass or Stainless.  Additionally the grip diameter comes into play with weighting/balance... a 8.3mm Titanium Grip is lighter than the 9.2 Titanium grip.  The 'feel' difference between a pencil with a 8.3mm aluminum grip and a pencil with a 9.2mm brass grip is very, very apparent.  Which combo is best?  It all just really comes down to personal preference. Barrel Color... the back barrel is currently only available in aluminum.... but does come in several anodized colors... so you can pick a cool color combination you like! Thanks for stopping by... feel free to shoot me a note if you have any further question! Best/Brian@Spoke

Spoke Model 4 now available!

Hello!   The Spoke model 3 has ended up being a limited edition... they're just to much of a pain for the shop to machine.  Most Titanium pens and pencils start with Titanium tube... but I wanted to machine the model 3 from Titanium rod.  I made the stepped shape to make it obvious that this pencil is not simply from a turned tube.  The depth of drilling the rod has caused issues with yield... so only ~100 were made.  No worries... on to the model 4!

About time to get Spoke going again!

Hello! Spoke Pencil was my first Kickstarter project way back in 2012.  It lead me on an interesting path of serial Kickstarter projects going in several different fun directions.  I'm still exploring and creating... but it seems like now is a good time to revisit Spoke Pencil.   I tired to do it with a model 3... but the design in titanium is just too problematic to reasonably produce.  I have a limited number on the site now... and won't be making any more of those.   With model 3 'retired'...  that leaves Model 4 to lead the Spoke Pencil resurgence.  I have a new design in the works that will provide a lot of options. I'm currently planning on doing it on Kickstarter... probably a September launch (yes September 2017;) Keep and eye out for it and thanks for stopping by! Best/Brian

Happy 2016!

Hello! So, 2015 came and went without much happening on the Spoke Pencil front.  Those who know me from my Kickstarter projects know I've been quite busy developing my STRONG LIKE BULL Magnets brand.   For 2016, among my many resolutions is the release of the Spoke Triple Dot pencil.  The original single dot Spoke was my first entry into the mechanical pencil space.  The Spoke Double dot was a refinement... slimming and sleeking the design.  The triple dot is a major departure... keeping the Spoke flavor, but with some dramatic geometric alterations.  If all goes per plan, the initial pencils will show up on the site in January, 2016. Thanks for stopping by & Happy New Year! Best, Brian
