There’s nothing quite like owning and writing with a custom machined pen for EDC. Not only are they more deliberately designed and manufactured to much higher tolerances than the standard fare, but they also introduce unique functions and materials to your writing repertoire.

Tactile Turn is one of the premiere pen machinists on the market, especially when it comes to their popular bolt-action pen for EDC. The main piece that makes these pens interesting is the unique bolt action. It's one fluid motion to advance or retract and, because the surfaces of both the interior part and the inside surface have been carefully machined to be extra smooth, the action feels amazingly satisfying.

The unique bolt action shape allows for one fluid motion to advance or retract the refill. Because the surfaces of both the interior part and the inside surface have been carefully machined to be extra smooth, the action feels amazingly satisfying. If there's one pen that Tactile Turn recommends to new customers, it's this one.

Titanium is the best selling materials and the most popular. It's not quite as lightweight as aluminum, but significantly lighter than stainless steel, brass, and copper. Titanium is tough, lightweight, and extremely corrosion resistant. All parts of these pens are made from titanium except the clip which is stainless steel.

This is the Standard 5.6" length pen and there are four options to choose from: titanium, copper, bronze, and zirconium. Tactile Turn picked those four because they're popular, fun to machine, and can withstand a lifetime of use.

Tactile Turn pens are known for their CNC precision-machined texture. It's where their name comes from. The tactile feeling allows you to control the pen exactly the way you want. It won't bite into your skin but provides just the right amount of grip. It's subtle, but the textured surface disguises and protects the pens from light scratches much better than a smooth surface.

Tactile Turn was one of the first fully machined pen manufacturers. They don't do injection molded parts like most other pens. They make parts one by one on their computer numerically controlled lathes in their own shop in Texas to turn raw materials into finished goods.
