    So I sort of forgot to take my ss hinderer out of my pocket, where it was securely (or so I thought) clipped, before I went bushwalking. When I got home, all I had left was the end cap to remind me of the $80 pen that I'd loved and lost.

    I had to replace it because I liked it so much.

    Lesson learnt: the stabby bit likes to back out on itself. Also, it isn't a back pocket pen.

    To avoid this happening with the new one, I applied a small amount of thread locker, not on the actual thread, but in the small gap where the thread ends. Has been very secure. No backing out.

    What sold me and having one on the way is the kind of steel that is being used on the Hinderer I do not think has been discussed. I would pay good money if they made this kind of stainless for watches. Will feel much more confident with this pen in my pocket jingling around in my pocket with change and stuff.

    Applications Standards
    • Offshore (foils, helicopter deck platforms, etc.)
    • Food industry
    • Pulp and paper industry
    • Aerospace (turbine blades, etc.)
    • Mechanical components
    • Nuclear waste casks
    • ASTM A693 grade 630 (AMS 5604B) UNS S17400
    • EURONORM 1.4542 X5CrNiCuNb 16-4
    • AFNOR Z5 CNU 17-4PH
    • DIN 1.4542
    Corrosion Resistance

    Alloy 17-4 PH withstands corrosive attacks better than any of the standard hardenable stainless steels and is comparable to Alloy 304 in most media.

    If there are potential risks of stress corrosion cracking, the higher aging temperatures then must be selected over 1022°F (550°C), preferably 1094°F (590°C). 1022°F (550°C) is the optimum tempering temperature in chloride media.

    1094°F (590°C) is the optimum tempering temperature in H2S media.
    http://www.specialtysteelsupply.com/17-4ph-stainless-steel.php

    The alloy is subject to crevice or pitting attack if exposed to stagnant seawater for any length of time.

    It is corrosion resistant in some chemical, petroleum, paper, dairy and food processing industries (equivalent to 304L grade).

    Switched it up a little and bought a titanium cap and cap adapter to put on my stainless body. I actually like how the balance has changed when the cap is posted.
