Polished Titanium: The multi-step polished surface has a glass smooth finish and amazing luster. We then apply a hydrophobic polymer nano-resin (not a wax) to the surface to seal and further protect the finish.



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 pure 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 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.

5 of 5 Exceptional Pen! December 6, 2021
Reviewer: Lee A. from Hebron, KY United States  
I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the Tuff Writer Precision Press pen in polished titanium! The level of design and machine work exceeds that of any other metal pen I have purchased. The fit of each individual part was excellent, and the mirror polish was flawless. (Seriously, I looked carefully at the pen under an inspection light and could find no shortcomings in the polishing.)

I was concerned that the weight of a pen this size would be uncomfortable; however, it balances very well, and is quite pleasant for writing. I swapped the Fisher ballpoint cartridge for a Schneider Gelion+ gel cartridge (as I prefer gel ink for writing letters), and then used the adjustable spacer to bring the nib to the desired position. I am exceptionally pleased with how well the pen writes!

5 of 5 Love it! Mine's taken a beating for 3 years! December 20, 2018
Reviewer: Bob J from Azle, TX United States  
I'm tough on stuff.  I break it.  Not this pen though... and it's been an EDC for 3 years now.  This pen goes everywhere with my... clipped to my jeans pocket, molle on my gun bag, or srapped on my computer bag; it's been a constant companion for 1000+ days now.

I've had several other "tactical" pens confiscated by TSA.  They DO give this badboy a second look occasionally, but it's always handed back (with a look of admiration!).

It never fails to elicit comments from coworkers/friends who need to borrow a pen... "wow, this is (insert word of admiration i.e. really cool, heavy, awesome, etc)".  My return comment is always a canned "yea, you can drive this thing through a 2 x 4!"  (I haven't actually tried it, but I wouldn't be surprised!)

I'm sorry it's taken so long to write a review, but I guess 3 years of experience  lends to a less first-response emotional review... but even after 3 years, I'm pretty freakin emotional about this pen... it rocks.
