I am looking for another pen and it seems that I have special requirements. This pen will be carried in my jeans pocket, so a good metal clip is mandatory. The jeans carry eliminates clicky pens, I tend to click them by accident. It also means that a little bit shorter than standard is better. I do need it multiple times a day to jot down short notices and put it away again. This means that I want it to switch from carry mode to writing mode one handed and fast. That's about all there is to it. Recent pen history: -Fisher Bullet: Clip too weak, I lost it. I also did not like the opening/closing by rotating the cap. -Boker KID cal .50: I loved that pen. The size was perfect. Writing was a joyous experience. The firm bolt action was not only cool, but also a nice fidget toy. The only downside was that the threads for the clip are not deep enough. The screws broke free about four weeks in, I returned it and was refunded. -TI Pocket Pro: The pen I use at present. It has serious wear issues caused by me. I carried it next to my knife, which was fine until I started using a knife with sharp edges on the back spine, which caused the pen to gather a few battle scars until I noticed. I bent the clip by accident and had to bend it back, which did not come 100% into the old shape, but at least a working one, which caused further scars. Now I fear that I've significantly reduced this pen's life expectancy and would like to get something else for rotation / backup. If money was not an issue, I'd simply cough up 140 bucks and order a Wanger/Doering titanium like this: Which is in my humble eyes one of the most beautiful writing implements ever created and looks like I will last for a lifetime. I already felt like financially overdoing it on the TI pocket pro, though. So, any suggestions for a twist-to-open or bolt action or whatnot pen with a sturdy clip in the lower price brackets are more than welcome.
