What makes this 416SS mechanism so special?
Mostly the material choice and time consuming manufacturing process refinements. Virtually all high-end pen mechanisms are made from brass and plated (easier and cheaper to manufacture but not as durable as ours), we decided to go nuts and machine it out of 416 stainless steel (a much harder and more durable material). This meant we had to have it Swiss-CNC'ed which, while more costly, means we can hold much tighter tolerances (less than .0005" all day long on the Citizen L-20). The G-Code programming done by our friend's shop re-traces the race toolpaths to debur all edges, taking more time but it also means that the chrome steel bearing glides smoothly and the mechanism cycles like butter. It's much more expensive and time consuming to make it this way but it really is pretty awesome. Plus, the 416SS and chrome steel will wear better and last much longer than plated brass. It's complete overkill for a pen mechanism but hey... if you're going to make one, might as well make the best.

machined nock August 14, 2016
Reviewer: william monzingo from farmington, NM United States  
this nock starts off a little rough but with a bit of frog lube and use it smooths up. I love that it is so durable and dead sexy with the machined grooves. I will be replacing all my Schmidt nocks with yours.An excellent product. Now if you would make a tuff writer that can use a pilot g-2 insert.....perfection

416ss. Click mechanism July 26, 2016
Reviewer: Fred Nemiroff from The Villages, FL United States  
I received the click mechanism in 4 days. I installed it on my pen and depressed the push button. It was rough. I thought I would have to return it if it didn't smooth out. I gave the push button a few turns and tried it again. Smooth as silk! No problems since. Much better than the stock mechanism. I'm glad I upgraded.

Reviewer: Kris Roberts from Newburgh, NY United States  
It's a good mechanism.  Not 100 percent smooth. Better than anything else out there. Works for other pens. I have tactile turn shaker

High quality! April 22, 2016
Reviewer: Tim from Lakewood, CO United States  
This mechanism fits as a drop in replacement for the Schmidt SKM88 mechanism that is used on a lot of custom pens, but so far seems to be significantly smoother for me. The SKM88 seems to bind up pretty regularly, but the TuffWriter one hasn't so far. Quite a bit more expensive, but does seem higher quality.
