    Every know and then I get a little clicking when I rite with it. I usually have to rotate the pen and it works fine, but now and then I open it up and close it back. I think the spring is too short :S

    Don't panic on my account, I simply mean they are catching on people are buying them up, I bought 2, and just ordered 2 more. It's a matter of time before they are back ordered.

    Just a note that after EDCing this pen for a while now, and taking it on a camping trip, the screws that hold the clip on are coming loose. Hopefully I can get them tightened before the fall out :S

    When you put them back in, put a little locktite or super glue on the threads to help stop it from becomeing a problem. :luck:

    The blue one is cooler then I thought. I hope they come out with more colors. The only ones I don't have are the pink and gold ones, but they don't really interest me. Green would be cool

    Question - does either the S&W or Schrade accommodate the cap sitting on the rear of the pen?

    There the same pen. But to answer your quesion, not really. I found with enough force, yes, but its not designed this way.

    I thought there was a minor variation in the tail between the two? One was slightly pointier than the other?

    If you look at my picture you can see the only difference. The Black one (S&W) has a indent near the point, the grey one (Schrade) doesn't.

    I stopped by staples today and swapped out the refills with Parker Gel :roof: Now they look cool and write well.

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to get a gel refill for mine. I bought the Schrade in grey from EDCdepot and am very happy with it but would prefer gel.
