Home > Tuff Pens > Titanium

There are a lot of cool pens, some of them made out of titanium, available our 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 pure titanium. Swanky, right? To stay put in your pocket, we updated the nearly bullet-proof clip and also made it out of Grade 5 / 6AL4V titanium, then heat treated it to perfection. We use an adjustable machined Delrin spacer for fitting multiple cartridges (Fisher / Foray / Parker / Schmidt / Franklin-Christoph and many others) along with our famous 416SS machined advancing mechanism (no cheap stamped parts here) with a ball bearing cam design for silky smooth operation (so smooth, it doesn't actually "click"!).

The latest batch has a re-profiled tip and the wall thickness is now 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 much more manufacturing float then our machining process). Finally, we adjusted the balance to be more tip forward for a better feel when writing.

Why titanium?
Because it's awesome. Seriously... awesome, not joking here.

Even though titanium is much, much harder to machine its specific strength (strength to weight) is impressive and it is naturally corrosion resistant. Plus, it looks great.


Tell me more about this "titanium" stuff.

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.

We've decided to go with Grade 5 / 6AL4V (medical and aerospace grade) titanium which is significantly stronger than commercially pure titanium while having the same stiffness. This grade is an excellent combination of strength, corrosion resistance, weld and fabricability (although it's a bear to machine).

These titanium pens are CNC'ed on a multi-axis precision lathe. Both the body and tip will be run to .001" tolerances.
