The Tactile Turn Slider pen is the latest creation from the amazing Will Hodges, who is a stunning one-man operation from Richardson, Texas. These pens feature an elegantly simple design, awesome materials, and an irresistible bolt mechanism.
What makes the Tactile Turn Slider pen truly exquisite is that sheer attention to details. From the flawless machining to the silky smooth bolt action, the high-quality materials to the versatile design - everything is meticulously considered and thought out.
The Tactile Turn Slider Pen is slightly shorter than the Glider and comes with a Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 medium point with black ink and will fit all other "Parker style" refills. These are a little easier than the old pens to allow refills to fit and most require no modification at all for many different refills.
This bolt-action EDC pen fits well in almost all hands, though if you have larger hands you might be more comfortable with a Glider. Sliders tend to fit better in shirt pockets without sticking out. When it comes to refills, both pens take a wide variety of popular refills to suit every taste.
The main piece that makes these pens really interesting is the bolt action. These bolt-action EDC pens feature a shape unlike any other pen out there. It is 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 you’re looking for the perfect EDC bolt action tactical pen, this might be it. The Tactile Turn Slider feature some of the most precise CNC machining ever seen and are truly built to last several lifetimes. They come in a variety of materials, and accepts a range of refills. Finally, the addition of an intriguing (and inexplicably satisfying) bolt action mechanism completes the package.
