    ...
    Very limited edition Tactile Turn flamed blue, and polished body instead of the typical ridge textures he's famous for.

    Thanks for the very kind words.
    Will Hodges put them up for sale on his Instagram site.
    There were I think only 20 or so that his team modified.
    I was very lucky indeed.

    Bad Company, do you have any of his original bolt (slider/glider)pens? How is the shape/taper/grip on the new bolt pens compared to the old ones?

    Hi -
    There are actually some good online reviews comparing the older vs newer versions.

    This is my EDC too. I'm using an eyedropper on the cartridge. It is just barely long enough to keep a spare (unused) cartridge in the barrel behind the one you're using, but not long enough for a bigger cartridge because the spare cartridge has to face away from the nib.

    Today I got a low cost FURAGear pen from China. TC4 titanium (clip seems to be stainless steel). Love it already.

    Hey NorthernHarrier what do you think of the new C.C. pen? Mine is on the way. I am a huge fan of the site and their line of Embassy Pens plus the long Delrin Pocket Box is a HUGE selling point for me. The original Pocket Box is part of my EDC and has been for a decade now. Love to hear what you think befoe I get mine. Thanks bro.

    I’m very happy with this pen. It’s small but not too small to hold, light in weight, and the threads are surprisingly smooth when twisting the barrel to extend and retract the point.

    The ridges machined into the pen are helpful for gripping it. There is no play in the ink cartridge tip when extended - the whole thing feels very sturdy. I’m no expert, but the machining looks very good to me.

    This is my first titanium pen. Got a lucky price on it. I expect that it will hold up very well, given the solid construction and few moving parts.

    Took advantage of a discount to get one of these Pendulum pens, yet this one has a groove cut in the lower section of the barrel which isn't equally-spaced between the other 2 beside it (the upper horizontal one at the left side in the image):
    [​IMG]
    After contacting them and showing that the groove wasn't positioned correctly, they said they'd make it right, so that's good customer service!
