Necessity is the mother of invention. Our development team wanted a simple rugged pen without a cap, and minimal moving parts and distractions for use in the shop.
There’s sufficient thread engaged with the barrel to maintain a solid connection, and there’s enough friction in the threads such that the tail cap won’t accidentally unscrew the rest of the way.
Pen tip retracts into the head when not in use
Any other company would have gone to the office supply store and bought a box of "stick" type pens and be done with it. Not our crew. We spent weeks re-inventing and improving the lowly stick pen into a engineering masterpiece that we enjoy using. We know you will enjoy it too.
Finally a pen for the purist. There are no distractors on this pen. It's stiff straight shaft provides a comfortable grip for extended use.
One of our team members, who is also a pilot discovered that the thin clipless design fits perfectly in the thin pen pockets on his military flight suit, and it's name was born. He shared a few samples with his friends and the word is out. The Titanium Flight Suit Pen is a big success among flight crews at our local air base.
I know some have said for it to be a flight suit pen it needs a clip, I on the other hand have a velcro closure on top of the pocket and leave the pen exposed. Very quick to deploy and start writing. Build quality is second to none. I need a couple more! Great Job on this one....

Simplicity and elegance
What makes this pen great are the things you can’t see, even though it still looks beautiful to me. The weight, the balance it’s all perfect. I’d love to see an anodized version to be sold on the site, maybe a version II with some interesting machining that adds to the pen, but doesn’t take anything away.

This is the perfect pen for a uniform sleeve pocket (perhaps better suited for ground use than by pilots - they need "clicky" things.) Titanium ensures the pen will survive bumps that would snap an ordinary pen. Checked and found the Fischer Space Pen refill will fit in the pen, although it is approximately 9mm shorter than the supplied pen cartridge. Something about the size of a pencil eraser (without the metal ferule) serves as an adequate adapter.

The suit penis well made and writes without a skip. Although I normally don’t use fine point pens, this one writes well and lays enough ink down to be readable. Serves the purpose I was looking for.
