Enter to Win a Machined Schon DSGN Pen Made Entirely in the USA *UPDATE*

By The ITS Crew

Schon DSGN Pen

Update: The contest is now over. Thanks to everyone who entered!

Schon DSGN is based in Boston MA out of a small prototyping space where founder Ian Schon, designs, engineers and produces machined metal products. Some of you may have first seen Schon DSGN through their Kickstarter project awhile back and at the launch of that project, there was only one pen available. Currently, Schon DSGN produces two more variants of the original design in aluminum and titanium.

“After several years of engineering school, I started to develop a passion for product design. I challenged myself to design an everyday object that I would be able to fabricate myself, embarking on a mission to design a pen to be carried with me every day.

Recently, the project took a different form when I decided to do a manufacturing run of these pens. The project went from design and fabrication to a mission to keep this project local in Massachusetts, keep the footprint low and to take it to market. Over the past year I have worked hard to make this happen.”

We featured Schon DSGN in our Christmas Gift Guide and he wanted to show his thanks by giving away three of his pens to ITS readers. Manufactured right outside of Boston, these Schon DSGN pens are a 100% USA made product. Post machining, the pens are either finished to a bright silver shine or anodized black in small batches by a local vendor using a unique multi-step process. The included Fisher Space Pen cartridge is held by a brass slotted set screw, cut by one of the oldest screw manufacturers in Massachusetts.
