A lot of people within the EDC community have a fascination with tiny things — myself included. There’s something incredibly pleasing about carrying and using a tool that’s small, lightweight and can still get the job done.
SLUGHAUS is no stranger to tiny gear. They successfully funded two Kickstarter campaigns for both versions of the world’s tiniest flashlights, BULLET. They’re now back at it again with a miniature ballpoint pen that makes the Fisher Space Pen Bullet look big.
The NanoPen measures just under 2 inches (5 centimeters) long and 0.3 inches (0.75 centimeters) in diameter. Made of aluminum, it weighs just 0.16 ounces (4.5 grams) and the tip is made of tungsten carbide, making it incredibly strong.
The NanoPen is already fully funded on Kickstarter with 58 days left in the campaign. You can grab a three-pack of NanoPens for just $18, or an early bird price for a two three-packs for $24. They’re expected to ship in December 2018.
