Description Technical Specs
 
Brushed Titanium: These pens are tumble polished then painstakingly hand brushed to achieve a classic brushed look. The benefit of this finish is that while elegant, it also wears well dues to the surface finish being "pre-worn". Pictures really don't do this cross-hatched finish justice.


There are a lot of cool pens, some of them made out of titanium, available out there. Nice pretty pens with cute little clips. Ours is not one of them. Everything about our pen screams over-designed, over-engineered and over-built. Think of this as an evolution of our previous design... in -drum roll, please- titanium. It's a "clicky" pen with a body and tip machined out of solid titanium. For proper balance (everyone knows that a real writing pen should have the balance tipped forward), the tip has been re-profiled and is also made out of Grade 5 titanium. Swanky, right? To stay put in your pocket, we updated the nearly bullet-proof torch stamped titanium clip and left it raw for aesthetics. We use a machined Delrin spacer for fitting multiple cartridges (Fisher / Foray / Parker / Schmidt / Franklin-Christoph) and a machined cam advancing mechanism (no cheap stamped parts here) with a ball bearing cam design for silky smooth operation (so smooth, it doesn't "click"... it's actually cooler this way).

In addition we've improved on the original version. The new tip has been re-profiled and the wall thickness increased. We've also loosened up the tolerances on the nib to allow for more flexibility when choosing difference replacement cartridges (most cartridges are stamped and have more manufacturing float then our machining). Finally, we adjusted the balance to be more tip forward for a better feel when writing.


Why titanium? In short, titanium is about 45 percent lighter than steel, 60 percent heavier than aluminum and more than three times stronger than either of them. This version of the pen uses 6AL4V Grade 5 (medical grade) titanium which is light in weight and yet stronger than steel. It's both corrosion resistant and exceedingly durable.

What makes it special? Unlike other pens which use tubing, our pens are machined from solid titanium bar stock with considerable wall thickness. This makes for a much more precise finish, better threading and more durable pen. It's more costly and time consuming to do it this way but the end result is precision machined excellence like no other.

Good Pen November 27, 2014
Reviewer: Tom Beaver from mocksville, NC United States  
The pen feels good but the 3 "O" rings on the nib area of the pen do not feel good and create an imbalance in the pen when writing.  I removed the "O" rings and the pen feels much better

Fine Craftsmanship Fine Service December 18, 2013
Reviewer: Mark from Sharon, MA United States  
I just received the Tuff Writer Titanium pen, brushed finish -- it's a thing of beauty. Your craftsmanship is superb! It's well-balanced, and the brushed surface gives just the right amount grip -- for a hefty pen it's a pleasure to write with. This is a well-thought-out, well-crafted tool, rare in this day and age. I really appreciate the personal attention you gave me as well. You have a loyal customer.
