Our Take

We love seeking out artisans who have an amazing story to tell and unique products to offer. We met Ian Schon in our city of Boston just before he moved to Philly. His workshop was jam-packed with the coolest machines and tools to make beautifully executed pens and watches. Ian “strives to create heirloom quality objects that outlive their owners, the kind of products that have a very permanent feel, hence the solid metal construction of the pens.” We’re excited and proud to support Ian on his quest to make American made pens and watches.

Machined from solid grade 5 titanium barstock this pen is the brainchild of Ian Schon, a small pen manufacture now located in Philadelphia PA. With a background in engineering, manufacturing and design, Ian has been making these pens for the past 7 years, starting out of his garage and now owning all of his production equipment to enable him full creative and manufacturing control. EsperLuxe and Ian have teamed up to create this limited production of titanium pens using a custom anodizing of the titanium to create vivid colors on the outside of the front of the pen. These natural colors in blues and golden brown are meant to evoke horological finishes. Similarly the colors are revealed when the pen is opened up, in the same way that a watch movement's elaborate finish is only revealed when a watch is flipped around. These colors are created by subjecting the titanium to an electric current making the rich colors in the pens outer surface. This process is hand applied and hand finished, so each piece is unique.
