    So I finally decided to get a new pen since I lost my old Fisher space shuttle pen, that i loved so much.

    Found this one on amazon for fairly cheap, I think it was less money than the Fisher.
    Same refill as well.

    It's a bit on the heavy side, but since I dont write novels this is ok for me, ima sushi chef and have to write orders for customers or merchandise orders so this feels really good in the hands.

    Looks like a Chinese copy of the the Tactile Turn Slider.

    Is it really 6.4oz like the description says?

    It’s made by Bastion. I have that exact pen (got it when it was on Kickstarter), and let me answer that question... YES it weighs that much. It is a really heavy pen. I like the other version better - it is carbon fiber in the middle, so it doesn’t weigh as much. It’s still heavy, but it’s about half or less the weight of the full stainless.

    No...if you look at the bolt action mechanism, it's definitely not a copy of a Tactile Turn. Also, the product description shows 2.8 oz.....which is in the ballpark for a Stainless pen that size.

    It is a really heavy pen, but I love how it writes with the extra weight. I have a different black Fisher with the same refill but the bastion bolt writes smoother.
    The bolt action part is really smooth and has a satisfying click. Seems well made.
    So far I'm really liking this pen.
    Lighter would be good if you do a lot of writing.

    $72.60 at the moment on .ca.
    $30 on .com plus $17.09 shipping and import. Still cheaper than the Canadian site.
