Tactile Turn DLC Coated Titanium Glider Bolt Action Pen
This run was the only one during this half of 2017 and is very limited in supply.
Titanium is tough, lightweight, and extremely corrosion resistant. The center section of these pens is grade 9 titanium and all other parts are grade 5, also known as 6AL-4V. All parts of this pen are titanium except for the stainless steel clip.
The DLC coating is a special treatment. Physical vapor deposition coatings are extremely tough coatings that are mostly found to improve wear characteristics on machine tools and since the coatings are quite expensive they also are found on high end watches. Diamond Like Carbon aka DLC, is a beautiful black coating that will hold up great no matter how tough you are on your pens. DLC will only be available on the titanium pens.
The main piece that makes these pens really interesting is the bolt action. I use a shape unlike any other pen out there. It is one fluid motion to advance or retract the refill. Because the surfaces of both the interior part and the inside surface have been carefully machined to be extra smooth, the action feels amazingly satisfying.
The Glider series uses the popular Pilot G-2 refill, while the shorter Slider houses a Parker-style Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 ballpoint refill. 1.3 ounces (36 grams), 5.6" long.
