Got the techliner last night, what a cool pen!
Put a fine line refill in there, not sure it's a snug fit, cap doesn't pop back on correctly but still works fine.
Sorry I can't see this pic. Looks great now.
should be fixed now
I just bought the Ti2 Techliner tumbled copper shorty (with magnetic cap).
Now the wait.
Karaskustoms bolt action pen in brass today
Karas Kustom Bolt in copper. I'm in awe of this thing
How do like your bronze Maxmadco in terms of weight, balance, etc? Do you write with it frequently? Do you recommend it for note-taking? Are those grooves really worth an extra $15?
Jim has some bronze ones for sale, and I am thinking of getting one.
I think this all depends very much on the size of your hands and on your writing style. I find it very comfortable to write with but I have to say that I always prefer a pen with a certain weight over light plastic pens. The Karaskustoms brass pen however is too heavy for longer writing sessions for me. In terms of pure writing comfort I like the Tibolt a little bit better than the Maxmadco, it is a bit lighter (43g vs 48g including the respective refills), thicker, and the balance works better for me. But the Maxmadco is not far behind! The grooves are also useful for me (again, this depends on how you hold the pen) but not necessary. I probably would not have added them but I got the pen second-hand at a bargain.

Naval Brass Maxmadco pens are available for purchase now. What would be your pick between the bronze Maxmadco and the brass one?
In your pictures,the bronze Maxmadco has an reddish brown color whereas the brass KK is more of gold/yellow. How do they feel in hand when writing?
Yes, that is correct! If you put them next to each other the bronze will look more reddish and also the patina that it develops has a warmer tint. I like that better but that comes down to personal taste. I don't think you can feel the difference between bronze and brass with your eyes closed. The two materials might differ in how hard or scratch resistant they are but that probably depends on the exact composition.
Currently using my Waterman ballpoint. Nicely made and solid.
sent from S6 edge plus. boom!!
I am so sorry I did not reply to your post earlier. In fact, I had missed it. I thought I had the notification feature set so that it would notify me when someone replied to my posts - must have misunderstood something about it.
The problem have actually happened to me, now that I think about it. When I first got the pen, I used extra fine points (I think they are .38, or something like that) and a few refills stopped working. Weird thing was, I tried them in other other bodies (plastic) and they started working again. Never figured out what the cause might have been as I tried a larger point (.5) and realized I like writing with that better.
I think, however, that I have read somewhere that the problem might be related to the magnet in the section – apparently, it might cause the ink to clog up. No idea if this is true, or even possible, though.
I am beginning to think that it does have something to do with the magnet. I put a new refill in last week, and it is already starting to act as if it is running out, or drying up.

Here's the same pen with my backup pen, a Fisher bullet pen in Matte Black,
