The pen functions great. Takes my favorite refill. All parts are holding up well. Only small issue was the pocket clip coming lose after 2 days carry. Was a quick fix. Everything else is great so far. Gonna be picking up another pen in copper sometime in the future.
I’m hard on all my gear, so far this pen has had the perfect blend of ruggedness and playful style with the stone washed body and Timascus clip and bolt. I love the feel in hand, and I am looking forward to seeing how it looks after it has some wear patterns on it. I’ve tried out several ink refills, and all fit snugly. No problem whatsoever.
I have a couple of pens from Big Idea Design so it's no surprise when I found out they had a bolt action pen I would hop on, I did have issues with PayPal but their customer service team was top notch helped me and had a quick response so for that Thank you Brantley/team. Back to the pen it is the same great quality I expect from Big Idea if you are looking for one of the best/if not the best bolt action pen this is it.
Just got the new bolt action pen and used it for writing various things down. It feels great in the hand and operates wonderfully.
The bolt is very easy to manipulate with your thumb while having great retention and feeling smooth. The pocket clip is a deep carry ride and fits snug on the pocket. I have no worries that the clip will fail. I swapped out the refill for a G2 and it fits perfectly. You can adjust the exposed pen tip by twisting the front barrel. The orings help keep the set length firm while being easy to adjust if you need to.
Maintenance on this pen is simple and only required a torx bit and a drop of oil on the brass internal barrel for smooth operation. You can swap the pocket clip to either side for your preference and thats pretty nice.
I went with the Timascus clip and bolt add ons and I am enjoying the look of them. The pen is a very solid writing utensil!
