Tactile Turn

Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen

New and Improved Bolt Action

If you're even remotely tuned-in to the EDC pen game, you'll know about the Tactile Turn glider pen. A one-man operation willed into existence by master machinist Will Hodges, the Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen is one of the best (if not the best) bolt-action writers ever made.

The new and improved Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen, with an updated naming (and less confusing labelling) of mini, short, and standard versions – comes with quite a few nifty upgrades that take it from great to absolutely perfect. 

Firstly, it now comes with a shorter bolt slot with a stronger spring to significantly improve the feel of the action (upping the fidget factor big-time). A refined tip makes for a cleaner line from ink refill to pen body, while a flatter top piece provides a lower profile when clipped onto the edge of your pocket. Finally, the bolt slot is now closed in both up and down positions.

As always, the hallmark of any Tactile Turn glider pen is the otherworldly craftsmanship. Superlatives fail us here. Whatever you call it – seamless, perfect, magic – we just call it a Will Hodges creation.

With its insanely tight tolerances, refined mechanism and design tweaks, the Tactile Turn Bolt Action Pen might just be the perfect EDC bolt-action pen that you've been looking for. Available in standard and short with your choice of solid bronze, copper, titanium, and zirconium – there's something for everyone. So get yours now before your favorite material sells out!
