The ultimate pocket pen....

The ultimate pocket pen. After getting hooked on the Bullet (Fisher Space Pen), I have been looking for the right pen to carry in my pocket and this fits the bill. I carry my phone in my one pocket so this pen rides with my keys. I wanted something with a finish (or lack thereof) that would take dings and gauges without ruining the finish. The raw aluminum body has already established a patina that is rugged without looking worn. The refill is a beauty and writes without smudges along my left-handed scrawl. Good stuff all around. Pick this one up after you've tried the rest.

One of my all-time favorite...

One of my all-time favorite pens. At the time I purchased mine it wasn't available from JetPens, but so glad it has arrived! And the price is extremely fair in comparison to other pen retailers.

This pen takes the same Schmidt roller ball refill as the Retro 51 Tornado which garners rave reviews from nearly everyone that uses it.

The pen is small and pocketable, but definitely grabs attention when you take it out for use. Being the "raw aluminum" finish, the pen will scratch over time, but the shiny and polished coating is something to behold for sure.

Can't recommend this pen enough.

I give this pen five...

I give this pen five stars for it's ergonomics and precision construction, but the aluminum they use is much softer than I've encountered in other aluminum pens, so it scratches and dings easily. It's not a problem in terms of function, but it means this super shiny pocket pen will quickly pick up an uneven finish. Because it is made of soft material, it can be either roughed up easily to dull the brightness and hide scratches (I use ScotchBright) or polished back to a luster. Still, I would have like to have seen it made of better aluminum stock.
