    Nope. Sorta makes it a desk pen.
    And pretty sturdy build quality as well.

    For its weight, I'm not able to verify it, although the campaign page says it's 60g. It feels heavier than my rotring 600 series triopen (which is less dense and therefore larger in its dimensions), and its density seems comparable to (though less than) my Inkling Pen Co's BOMApen D6 (I got the multi-endcap model D6):

    Big Idea Design's titanium clicky RTS pen with stylus:

    I got the one in matte black. Takes 35 different refill brands. Writes well, stylus tip is replaceable, reasonably priced, and so on. In brief, good pen.

    Really digging my Bigidesign Titanium ballpoint:

    I've been carrying it for about a week now. Good size and weight. Reasonable to write with posted but I use it unposted. This version takes Parker size refills; I'm using Itoya gels. Got the black version for $50 total because it was on sale, had free shipping, and I got a $5 off code for signing up for the newsletter. Worth the money.

    ThirstyTurtle - That's a great deal - better than the ks project buy-in! Nice.

    Don't have the Maxmadco anymore but the short answer is "no". The machining, while very good, is NOT on pat with the MMC bolt. However, it carries a lot better because of the way deeper pocket clip and also I was really looking for a screw cap pen just because I think it's cool. My only gripe with the MMC was that it didn't carry deep enough and I would've personally preferred a grippier grip. Also this pen was less than half what the MMC cost; I would never have sold the MMC if it was only $50 but at like $120 I dumped it and spent my money elsewhere.

    When did you sell your Ti Maxmadco? Did you post your Ad here? I've been looking for a used Maxmadco for years without any luck.

    Ditched the leather case(trying to slim down) and opted for packaging tape on the cover. Still loving this pen though!!

    Based on this post I managed to hack my own Sharpie InkJoy:
    Get a Papermate InkJoy refill out, cut the right size to fit, a bit of tape around InkJoy neck and insert into an empty Sharpie.

    I'm not OP, but that's a Hinderer Investigator pen.
