PRE-SALE NOW AVAILABLE. 4-6 WEEKS UNTIL PRODUCT SHIPS. GET IN THE QUEUE AND CLAIM THIS SLEEK, STYLISH PEN WHILE SUPPLY LASTS!! Unleash your creative genius with the luxury Bolt Action Pen by Bastion Gear. A stylish conversation starter. Unique addition to any everyday carry (EDC). Very solid construction, all metal, bolt-action open/close. CNC machined out of carbon fiber and stainless steel; it's precisely designed for sketching and writing, making it the perfect companion to have at your desk or when you're on the go. Carbon fiber is rarely used in pens due to its high cost and manufacturing complexity. We figured out how to incorporate a carbon fiber barrel with stainless steel ends for a durable, unique pen. Consists of a solid carbon fiber tube over a stainless core tube. It is difficult to thread into carbon fiber, so the stainless threads will guarantee that the threads last forever, no matter how many times you change the refills. The bolt action is inspired by the mechanism used in rifles. It provides an elegant and secure mechanical lock without parts that will wear out or break. The ISO standard G2 "Parker style" refills are super simple to replace. There are many colors, inks and tip styles available from Parker and other refill manufactures. It's easy to swap colors, and never run out of ink. Length: 5.28 inches Width: 0.45 inches Weight: 2.3 ounces
Purchased two via Kickstarter campaign. Very satisfied.
Using with Itoya Needle Point 0.7 mm Gel Refill (see photo).
Note: In the two pens I received, the springs differed (did not have the same inside diameter). The smaller diameter spring was too tight for some Parker refill options. I actually replaced both with the springs from inexpensive Uniball 207 Gel click pens. The Uniball spring has a slightly larger diameter, and is less resistant to compression, giving the bolt motion a better "feel".
