Tuff Writer Pen Precision Press Series
This Tuff Writer Precision Press pen is designed to be 'the ultimate' indestructible clicky pen and is a beautiful writing instrument that needs to be tried. The Tuff Writer Precision Press pen is perfectly weighted for a comfirtable writing possition. The Tuff Writer Precision Press pen utilizes an all metal body machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum - or Commercially Pure Titanium for the Ti Model.
The Tuff Writer Precision Press Pen is designed to be "the ultimate clicky pen". It is entirely modular with each component being easily replaceable and built to last a lifetime. The Tuff Writer Precision Press pen utilises an all metal body machined out of 6061-T6 Aluminum.
To ensure proper balance and amazing strength the tip is machined out of 303 Stainless Steel. A clip, pressed out of spring steel and coated for durability and corrosion resistance, helps keep the pen securely fastened and close at hand. The pen also uses a spacer for allowing fitment of multiple cartridges (Fisher / Foray / Parker) and at its heart, a machined advancing mechanism with a two piece bearing-cam design for silky smooth operation (so smooth, it doesn’t even "click"). Finally for grip and comfort, the pen body has removable contrasting black Duron o-rings which assist in maintaining a positive grip on the pen when you need it most.
In addition, this pen also has a new and improved satin finish with non-marking surface treatment which helps minimize fingerprint marks and reflection off the pen.
The best part is that the new design of this pen allows it to be operated one handed and still fit into virtually any shirt pocket. Simple, functional and elegant all at the same time.
There are no identifying marks, no logos and no engravings on this pen.

Additional information for the Titanium Model
There are a lot of cool pens, some of them made out of titanium, available our there. Nice pretty pens with cute little clips. Ours is not one of them. Everything about our pen screams over-designed, over-engineered and over-built. Think of this as an evolution of our previous design... in -drum roll, please- titanium. It's a "clicky" pen with a body and tip machined out of solid titanium. For proper balance (everyone knows that a real writing pen should have the balance tipped forward), the tip has been re-profiled and is also made out pure titanium. Swanky, right? To stay put in your pocket, we updated the nearly bullet-proof cold stamped spring steel clip and textured powder-coated it for durability and corrosion resistance. We use a machined Delrin spacer for fitting multiple cartridges (Fisher / Foray / Parker / Schmidt / Franklin-Christoph) and a machined cam advancing mechanism (no cheap stamped parts here) with a ball bearing cam design for silky smooth operation (so smooth, it doesn't actually "click"... it's actually cooler this way).
In addition we've improved on the design. The new tip has been re-profiled and the wall thickness increased. We've also loosened up the tolerances on the nib to allow for more flexibility when choosing difference replacement cartridges (most cartridges are stamped and have much more manufacturing float then our machining). And finally, we adjusted the balance to be more tip forward for a better feel when writing.
Why titanium? In short, titanium is about 45 percent lighter than steel, 60 percent heavier than aluminum and more than three times stronger than either of them. We've decided to go with commercially pure (CP) titanium which, in its annealed state, is a ductile metal used where corrosion resistance is an important criteria or where operating temperatures preclude the use of aluminum. This flavor is often found in airframe skin (think SR-71 Blackbird), heat exchangers, cryogenic vessels and exhaust pipe shrouds.
