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 love this pen, almost more than my titanium embassy pen. The machine work is excellent and it’s my EDC pen. I’m using a Rotring refill, which fits perfectly.

Great pen, good machining, amazing price. I knew what to expect going in, twist pens take forever to deploy. I wish that wasn't the case as getting the ink out takes too long to be practical for me. It will probably find a place in a pen stand, ink out, ready to go, which kinda defeats the whole twist thing.

Simple, well made, easy to use, and now my everyday pen.

Well made pen
This is a great pen for everyday use. To answer a question from a previous review, simply twist the top to extend or retract the writing tip. The design is simple and clean.

Smooth and solid
This pen has such a great feel in the hand. I was happy to see that it was not a click mechanism but rather a twist on the end to extend the cartridge. The ink is way better than the space pen and on par with the Schmidt 9000 easyflow M refills. Very smooth, no blobs or smears. It also does not bleed through like a lot of gel pens can do. At first it bothered me that there is no way to clip it to pocket of shirt but this pen is so smooth and sleek that it would have detracted from the looks and feel. I carry it in front pocket or side pocket without worry of bending it. It also fits nicely in my Lochby zippered note pad. Picture shows it with my other 3 favorites. Staedtler Mars-780, Pentel P209 and my Parker Jotter (Schmidt 9000). Totally happy with my purchase. Thank you CC!!!!
